    So what's going on?

    Some people say Cyclo wouldnt let em sell the cyclo unless they took off the edge.

    Some say the edge factory closed down and its just a coincidence...

    Whats the truth? I think itd be odd to release 1.5 then shut down operation so soon...

    And whats with the cyclo on DX, it looks like a restickered Edge and even comes with the same adapter that the Edge comes with.
    Have they always looked the exact same (YES I KNOW EDGE IS A CYCLO CLONES) or is something fishy going on.

    Anyone know anything?

    First I believe the Edge is made my Team Cyclo and not officially endorsed by them. This rumor has floated around and just makes sense. When their site was down, Cyclo's site was down..ect..ect..
    Second I forsee an Edge II or something like that in the future, only after a new release of the Cyclo. Which looks like it may be coming soon knowing the Edge most likley stopped production. All speculation but it just seems to fit together.

    They made money on the lower end market, why does a car company have a luxury car and a cheap sub-compact in their same lineup?
    Its all about features.

    DX sent me a notice today confirming that production has stopped. Maybe this is due to the upcoming holidays in October but i have had an order down with DX for Edge cards since mid August.

    I'm starting to suspect the cyclo/edge rumors to be true....

    Well i mean the Cyclo/Edge rumours might be true, albeit a bit farfetched.
    Having 2 ends of the spectrum for sale surely does make a tonne of sense.

    I mean if not connected i hope Edge Team isnt dead. It was a good card for its incredibly low price.

    They're probably trying to just empty the market from all EDGE products to make way for a new product ? I mean the latest update gave me a glimer of hope, if the EDGE goes down ill be stuck with fake DSTT's and R4's [​IMG]

    that place
    What? I see EDGE listed on DX. How can they be not selling the EDGE?
    They're sold out though (temporarily btw)

    You will notice they also list the Acekard RPG temporarily out of stock, and it hasn't been in stock for more then a year.
