"AEGIS has been producing some of the best bike frames in the world for over 20 years. Unfortunately, in late 2007, the ability for small US manufacturers to renew credit got much tougher. It's been expensive enough doing business in the U.S. and especially in Maine, but we were really beginning to make some significant strides forward.
In the 1st quarter of 2008, I made the difficult decision to start shutting down the manufacturing facility for weeks at a time. And, it was working. But, by the Fall of 2008, the bottom of the economy fell out and by October, AEGIS stopped all manufacturing. I hoped I'd be able to restart, but after 12 months, I'm not sure what the future of AEGIS will be.
AEGIS is out of business. There are a couple of scenarios where AEGIS may re-emerge.
The 1st is that I am able to find a partner or buyer to purchase all the assets of AEGIS. If you're interested in this, email me at email@example.com.
AEGIS has over 200 frames finished and ready for sale. If I can reduce inventory, there may be a chance. The most likely buyer of these frames are those who know the quality and performance of them. These frames are being sold with no warrantee and no promises other than they had been manufactured in the same way as all the frames made over the years by AEGIS.
All Existing frames are available at http://www.shop.aegisbicycles.com."
