There was an intersting Associated Press article in the local paper this morning about Trek bicycle company. Did anyone else read it? I don't have the link to it, but it had some interesting statistics in it about bike sales. Road bike sales accounted for 28% of dollars spent on bike sales in 2004 versus 16% in 2002, according to the National Bicycle Dealer Association. But road bikes only accounted for 11% of total bikes sold.
Road bikes were the only catagory that saw an increase in the number of bikes sold from 2003-2004.
Is it the Lance factor?
