One left each of the men's and women's versions.
Hero must have bought Parkers in the process then I guess although it could simply be the legal formalities of Hero taking over Avocet hasn't been recorded yet and won't be until this year's financial statement maybe Parkers have split of at this point. It was just confusing when I knew Avocet were owned by Hero bikes and seemed strange to own a relatively small cycle shop operation considering Hero I think are the second biggest bicycle manufacturer in the world by volume after fuji-ta of China. If you look at the figures Parkers doesn't have huge sales. Anyway you have definitely established the connection between the companies but again while it may be relevant for e-bikes for those who don't want to the hassle of trying to find replacement parts on aliexpress or ebay it certainly isn't applicable to this particular bike. https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/northwest/hero-cycles-revives-historic-cycling-brand https://www.bikebiz.com/business/hero-of-india-takes-majority-stake-in-avocet-of-manchester
Companies house shows beyond question that Parkers parent company is avocet sports ltd
They (eventually) transferred my call from Avocet to Parkers via their own switchboard and were a bit cagey when i asked if it was the same company. If most people get good service most of the time that's fine but my experience doesn't support that.
