    If you ever want to invest in a bike company

    http://www.google.com/trends?q=trek+...o=all&date=all

    Looks like searches for Trek bikes ebb and flow with the Tour, but there is a general upward trend. Other bike manufacturers also have such spikes, but not as big, except Huffy.

    Generally, searches for bikes are going up, with the exception of Litespeed -- that's been going down slightly over the past 2 years. The biggest gain is Trek (and also Giant). Cervelo also has some healthy gains. Colnago is pretty stagnant. Huffy is stagnant too.

    And, to put the Shimano/Campy debate to rest:

    "fixed gear" shows a better trend than "track bike"
    "fixie" is used most by people in San Francisco =(
