Interested in what brands your thinking off??

Imho ... In this brand saturated market, none. Unless they take on another existing brand that's represented locally. 

Personally I don't feel Cannondale SA leverage Hatherly's association enough, if at all. Certainly not comparable to when he was with Specialized. In saying that though, we don't know what the structure and details are. 
With Rush Sports however they've a dynamic support for the schools league, where Hatherly started out essentially.

SoIs this an advert for Rush or an assessment of viability of change to the distribution network.

What I read is a lot of soft issues that doesn't make a strong business case.

At the end of the day what matters is the infrastructure and dealer network required to support the marketing of 4additional brands vs business as usual.

This is not a simple as an opportunity statement. There are far reaching impacts to cash flow projections, warehousing costs, staff costs and marketing costs.

Was thinking along those lines last night, with Santa Cruz and Greg Minnaar, there must be scope for Cannondale and Hatherley.

Neither. 
But so called soft issues have a pronounced effect on business. But nobody here is making a business case.

Completely agree on all else. And am pretty sure that people for the most part are aware of these issues. All of which are not unique either.
As mentioned previously though, purely speculative, and really this is why forums exist. People with different perspectives can discuss topics such as this without malice and a pinch of salt. It doesn't detract from anything.

I get that but we're postulating about brand association with pro riders making a business case for Pon to consider altering the dealer network.that would be bad for business

No we're not.
