Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What happened to the BH G8? Anyone know?

I was over on the BH website the other day and the BH G8 is no longer listed. Anyone know if BH has stopped making the G8? Or was the bike removed from the website because BH has zero stock?

And before someone suggests to email BH directly, I already did that and they told me to email my LBS. Which would work, except BH is no longer sold in NA so I don't have an LBS to contact.

Thank you.

If they aren't sold in NA, your interest is strictly theoretical?

Nope. I am thinking of purchasing a new G8, or G9, online. But low and behold the G8 doesn't seem to be online anymore. So I'm curious to know what happened to the bike.

This bike?
https://www.bhbikes.com/en_GB/new-release/g8-disc

They only show four dealers on their website. So you won't have to make many calls.

Yeah, that's the bike. Their website used to have the bike listed under 'bikes > road > performance" but no more. I'll see what the dealers have to say.

Just an update in case anyone comes to this thread. The G8 has been replaced by BH Aerolight.
