End of onyx?

Seems like they're throwing it in, with plenty of drama? Who knows. They seemed atop their game but homepage has now got no more than a vague suicide note for the company

Sorry if this is already posted, didn't see it.

Re: End of onyx?

It JUST changed to that sometime in the last two hours; before that it was a strange message saying it was in the "destruction" phase and that the site was under construction. Honestly, didn't think much of it- I was just trying to find pics to photoshop for a moped spoof poster, hah.

This is a new development to me

and as of this post, its just a blank onyx logo at the website (edited)

Fakemopedarmy's been joking on them hard, but damn the video of that dude eating shit on a two foot hill sent my sides into orbit.

This seems very bitchy.

If you go into business with others they can and most likely will fuck you, or you’ll fuck them.

I guess they didn't pay their electric bill.

That reminds me of when we were called to a business because “their electric wasn’t working”. They didn’t pay their bill, and it was a good laugh for a service call.

Re: End of onyx?

Their site might have been hacked?

Re: End of onyx?

The Ken Ames they're referring to seems to be the "President Engineering & Sourcing Group, Revolution Lighting Technologies".

Troy Smith is too generic of a name for me to decidedly figure out who they're talking about.

Tim Seward is the founder of Onyx according to his Instagram

This kinda sucks, because Onyx has been doing a good thing.

But this isn't a great look on the part of whoever is commandeering the site.

As expected though, a cool moped-based thing ends in drama.

Re: End of onyx?

damn, that sucks. I loved that they didn't overprice their Ebikes unlike Harley with their serial 1 shit-bikes

To be fair a lot less engineering went into making the Onyx since they used so many off-the-shelf components

Re: End of onyx?

You want to talk about overpriced shit bikes, carbon fiber downhill mtb are like $6k and they don't even have a motor, what gives! I can buy a decent huffy at walmart for like $150!!

Re: End of onyx?

Still though, 5K+ for a 250w pedal assist-only bike? Thats worst than puch magnum prices.

yeah, as a fellow MTB guy I don't see me spending 6K on a carbon monster. My 11spd hardtail does everything I need it to do. (edited)

There's no such thing as a "decent" huffy. At least not since the 50's.

I worked bike assembly for walmarts for 4 years (up until my covid vacation.) The amount of huffy cranbrooks with untrued wheels, crunchy coaster brakes, etc is mind boggling.

Re: End of onyx?

Bummed that Treats is gonna lose all that Onyx business in black LTD fairings and EgoBoost shocks :(

Re: End of onyx?

their homepage is changed now to just the logo, but no other content

Re: End of onyx?

Back when I owned a bicycle shop, I made good $$$s on Huffys, when a customer would compare our prices to theirs, I'd usually sell them on letting me "go over it" for $50, trust me, they would come in 99% of the time :)

Dang I was kinda hoping someone knew more. We shall see i suppose

Idk looks like we will find out more this week per the website now

Re: End of onyx?

Looks like they were sued by investors.. lost and the current CEO.. not me.. is having a meltdown.. please keep my name out of this bullshit. I had nothing to do with the alleged illegal corporate activities the CEO engaged in. I designed the bike started the Company and left 2 years ago. I have zero financial ties to ONYX and I am now glad I made that hard decision 2 years ago.
