October 10, 2008

According to The Economist bike sales are up. Giant, one of the largest manufacturers sold 460,000 bikes last month! And there are reported shortages in New York and Taiwan where people are actually putting deposits on their future 2-wheeler delivery. Bikes in urban settings are not a new fad yet taking a bike public transport is difficult and often not allowed, particularly during rush hour. So check out the folding bike solution. How brilliant, although the bikes are not made for long distance. “It’s a three-legged comparison between the durability of the bike, how much it’s going to cost and how much it’s going to weigh. If you want something that’s very light and very durable, you’re going to pay for it. If it’s going to be durable and reasonably priced, it’s going to be heavier,” said David Fiedler, bicycling guide at bicycling.about.com.
