I don't see how things can get any better for the bike industry. Seems like everything is on the upswing.
I'm just looking through the latest issue of BRAIN and I'm blown away at what's been happening in the freeride scene throughout the country. I had no idea so many sanctioned riding parks had been built. There's no doubt freeriding will continue to blow up in '06.
And of course we can't forget about the high-end road market. Seems like not a day goes by without some company announcing a new carbon road bike in their line-up (Diamondback being the latest).
And city/commuting bike makers have to be loving the recent oil debacle, continuing bad news about obesity, and millions coming from the Feds to improve the bike infrastructure of our cities.
Should be an exciting time in Vegas. People tend to be in better moods when business is good.
