So what happens with the name now - NOWOOD?

 

Jeesh. Bummer. Or wait...if the name changes, then maybe my Zula has just tripled in value?

I have no doubt there is a deep undercurrent to this story! Who leaves a business you have used sweat, blood and tears to start, market and grow to become a worldwide phenomenon?

Er, he did say in the story that he hoped Morewood Bikes goes from strength to strength. The name has a great reputation. Why change it?

Wow that is quite sad!! This is what happens when a compnay grows from being a dream then becoming a hobby then turning into a small business then morphing into a international corporate brand. I guess he was probably involved in endless boardroom meetings, legal work, tax issues that one day he woke up and thought heck this isnt what i want. I just want to design and create bikes!! Good luck to him. Im not sure where that leaves Morewood but time will tell.

Yup, the price of success is in most cases the loss of creative freedom.

Agreed. Also the pressure for mass production taiwanese catalogue frames must have been an issue. Really sad story.
