BKH SUMMIT of Montreal, the manufacturer of MIELE BICYCLE has issued a warning against phoney bicycles. The firm purchased the brand in December 1995 when Miele Bicycle (1991) Limited went bankrupt.

The bicycles are being sold by the hundreds in a factory outlet store in the North York section of Toronto. The store is called THE BIKE FACTORY and advertises heavily in the Toronto Sun and discount newspapers.

A "Cease & Desist" notice was served and a lawsuit has been filed in the Federal Court of Canada citing trade-mark infringement. The RCMP is also currently investigating. So far, the individual are ignoring the legal procedures and continuing to sell the bicycles.

Consumers are warned about the phoney bicycles and that they will not be covered by MIELE warranties.

Should any consumers be concerned about the bicycles they have purchased, they can call MIELE BICYCLE at (514) 339-5487 or e-mail them at
