The Flexible Flyer is 115 years old or so. All stocks are gone. This is from an article in today's Wall Street Journal, hanging it on the "skeleton" event in the Winter Olympics. Production was moved offshore at a certain point and then plastic sleds were made under the name. This is just another way that U.S. manufacturing is going to hell in a handbasket. A Canadian brand just doesn't make it. We had three Flexies, a really short one, mine (which was the fastest sled I was ever on), and the biggest one made, which was shared, and which was rather slow because of its size.
