Parent Company of Performance Bicycle, Fuji & Breezer Files for Bankruptcy
@Compasteedee: I work in a relatively big corporation. There is a reason Business Process Management is a specialized area for helping companies with exactly that ;)

Tenneco Inc. Buys Öhlins Racing
@bluemonkeywrench: For what it's worth he already answered part of your question. His logic is that Ohlins is switching from an R&D focused company to mass manufacturing so it makes more sense to sell it to someone who specializes in that. I know nothing about Ohlins history, but a quick google search shows Kenth Ohlin who is the founder and had 95% ownership is 67 years old. This sale is purely him cashing out. A company like Ohlins already has a complete corporate structure in place. If Tenneco just stays out of the way then nothing changes. If they try to maximize profits by moving production or cost cutting on quality then it all goes to hell in a hand basket.

Parent Company of Performance Bicycle, Fuji & Breezer Files for Bankruptcy
@mintysauce: If you have a vision and a plan for taking a company in the right direction you can usually secure funding to do that. Sounds more like too little too late. The very idea of trying to sell bikes and only bikes through a retail location seems like a very challenging model to me. Long gone are the days where you could simply open up a store in the right location and expect to make a living.

Tenneco Inc. Buys Öhlins Racing
@islandforlife: "Tenneco's strategy has been to acquire popular brands, primarily in the high performance motorsports arena, and then strive to expand their product ranges and sales numbers" As far as visionary statements go that one could use a little work.

Telling Yuri's Story
Just went otb in a techy rock roll and smashed my elbow to bits. Lots of other scrapes and bruises so am lucky it wasn't worse. At 33 I'll probably be riding again next summer. Don't let fear and common sense hold you back.

What 5 Things Would Make Red Bull Rampage Even Better?
@jasperwesselman: all of these guys are sponsored Riders under some form of a contract. I would think that their contract is for a set amount of money and requires them to do certain things like participating in events, doing endorsements etc.. If anything they might get a bonus for performance

Just a matter of time before someone under or overshoots a big drop bad enough that it happens. The consequences of those lines is insane.
