I recently bought an Empella Bonfire. Over the last month or so, I've done some upgrades to get the bike to where I wanted it. Now, I'm really happy with the bike, frame and fork and I've been riding all over and loving it!

I just tried to go to http://www.empella.com (which is the website plastered on my frame), but I get re-directed/bounced to another site. This bouncing has happened within the last month or so, because I was able to get to Empella.com before getting my new bike.

It seems that the distributor's websites in the UK (http://www.empella.co.uk/empella.htm), CZ (http://www.empella.cz/bonfire_sl.html), and NL (http://www.empella.nl/) are still up.

Anybody know if Empella is still around?

That is kind of strange. If you go to ebay you will see someone from England clearing out a boat-load of their Frogleg brakes too. I just picked up a set of the green ones for $69. They had about ten pairs listed and nobody is bidding on them.

Hello Mike!
I hope you didn't give up your Seven... it's a beautiful!

Don't worry, I've still got the Seven SS 'cross. Although, it's on the blocks if the right offer comes along.

I recently unloaded a few of my road bikes that weren't being ridden like they should. I guess I'm really a mud-n-dirt kinda guy at heart, but I do like to hit the roads every so often.

So, I snagged a great deal on an Empella Bonfire and have been having a blast on it ever since.

Right now, it's set-up with Ultegra 10-speed (1x10) and I've got to say, having 10 extra gears comes in handy sometimes. I'm often towing my kidz in their Chariot, so having gears helps. I dunno, maybe I'm getting old or something ;)

I love the versatility that a CX offers (even more versatile with gears) and I doubt I'll ever own another roadie again. I love being able to take singletrack, doubletrack, gravel, etc. and then jump onto the pavement to connect the dirt dots, all without missing a beat! Really fun!
