Anyone know what happened to NeilPryde bikes?

I have had my Zephyr for a couple of years and can't fault it but I was just looking for their site and you would be hard pressed to believe they ever existed as a bike brand such is the lack of presence. Obviously all their windsurfing stuff is still going strong but not only is there no indication of 2019 bike offerings, but apart from broken links to old sales pages on CRC and Wiggle,  if I wasn't sitting looking at mine right now I would think I had imagined their existence!

I think they folded.

Even their Facebook page disappeared, not before I could ask them for a geometry chart for the secondhand Diablo** I had purchased some months ago.

**Great bike btw, I would think so is the Zephyr.

Some quick googling reveals that the Michael Pryde, head of NeilPryde bikes went off and founded his own company.

The Tere looks very similar to the old Bura.  I wonder if he bought the division out.

I've had direct dealings with Mike Pryde after 2 consecutive buraSL frames cracked.  Nice guy to deal with and was very hands on at NP.  Let's hope that approach has transferred over to his new venture.
