    Bicycle Sales in US - What's the ratio of MTB to Road to Other?

    I have read mountain bikes accounted for 95% of all bikes sold in the US in 1995. But I see more road bikes at all the local shops. Which made me wonder:
    • what is the ratio of road vs mountain bikes today?
    • And then I realized I need at least one more category for "other".


    I searched but couldn't find this info.

    Thanks.

    Started cycling 6/1/2010 at 64 - lethargy, bad knees, & 247# triggered my foray into cycling
    200# as of 9/9/2012 (mostly from diet, 40# in 5 mo)
    2010 (1st 7 mo) = 4.7K miles (a little nuts), 2011 = 6K

    My guess is that most bikes in the States are purchased in places like Walmart, Costco etc, that have lots of MTB's on hand. My LBS, like yours is predominately filled with road bikes,
