The falling value of the US Dollar and the increasing price in Oil, Steel, and Aluminum is resulting in a 15 to 25 percent increase in all bicycle items. These new prices have been paid by imports for months and are just now starting to be passed along to dealers who will pass them along to consumers.
weather buying from us or other online seller or from local bike shop - now is the time to move -- by fall prices will be much higher. And this is the first year in about 20 years that bike distributors will not have any meaningful closeouts on last years models.
In addition, with the increase in world wide bike demand; most factories have doubled their lead time - thus there maybe some shortages to boot.
Strange things happen when oil goes from $50 a barrel; to $100; to $120; to $145
