    Does anyone know who bought Donnay, and whether or not it the Pro One OS Ltd. will ever be resurrected?

    Donnay is now owned by a UK company called Sportsworld or a derivative thereof. They also now own Dunlop & Slazenger. The chances of them bringing back the Pro One OS ltd.......nil. The company has turned Donnay into a cheap image of what a classic rqt company once was, pile it high n sell it cheap. I hope that Dunlop/Slaz don't go the same way.

    Can you still purchase 'new' frames from the Donnay line in the UK?

    yes you can, but they at the cheap end of the market. When Greg 1st signed to them, you could buy reasonable 'players' rqts, but now they've disappeared. Probably something to do with Greg 'using' Dunlop. You can only buy Donnay from the shop who own the brand.

    So basically, what your saying is that Donnay is currently still selling frames , but more of a tweener line, correct? If that is true it's a shame.

    Also, if you come across a couple OS Ltd (L4), please drop me an email.

    Thanks again,
    Aaron
