and people bitch about Specialized, heh. Trek shut Bontrager (a santa cruz local high end bike maker) down, and now just uses it as a brand name on a bunch of different stuff (tires, forks, yada yada).

AFAIK, Specialized has designed all their own stuff and not acquired anyone. Per a bit of googling, they are still majority owned by the founder, although they sold a significant minority interest to Meridia of Taiwan, who has been one of their principal suppliers all along.
