Waterford/Gunnar Closes

Extremely sad news that Richard Schwinn has decided to retire and close Waterford and Gunnar. Good thing I got mine when I did. I've visited the factory a couple of times and Richard was always gracious and loved having visitors.

Thanks for posting this. I and my wife have owned multiple Waterfords over the years, road, touring, cyclocross and hard-tail mountain bike from a bike shop where my son worked. We visited the Waterford factory once during a Wisconsin bike tour and as you said Richard was gracious and enjoyed our visit.
