Hi All!

SJS Cycles have published a very nice timeline of the company's development that makes the SJSC/Thorn connection clear for those who may not realize Thorn-brand bikes date from a 1995 decision to create the brand as a way to address and fill a gap in the market.

http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/about-st-john-street-cycles-artlabout/

More will follow in time, but at present, this timeline is helpful for explaining the development and relationship of SJSC and Thorn.

Best,

Dan.

Interesting ...thanks for pointing it out Dan.

I like the chain graphic.
It'd be interesting if individuals were able to plot their Thorn bike buys along a chain timeline graphic.
I could put my Sherpa on at 2009, and my Audax on 2014.

I wonder how many Thorn bikes have been sold to date?
