    Hrmmm……East Coast Bicycle Supply……….Long Island……..is this the remnants of what is/was leftover from the demise of Iron Horse and said parent company?

    Or is it an entirely different company?

    ECC was formed by a group of ex-IH employees when the company went under.

    My friend shops at Mountain Cycle and has always had good things to say about them. Interesting to hear about the merger.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know where I can get parts for my K2 Lithium3 frame? The upper sealed bearing is knackered.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Dale.
