In market for a bike? Buy soon!

Recommended Posts

I went with a friend to the local bike shop yesterday to help him find a new ride. Bike shop guy was giving us a heads up on some significant cost increases coming soon with the new tariffs. 10% now, increasing to 25% in January.   For example the 2019 list price on the Specialized my buddy is buying is going up ~$800 over this year's model.  So think about securing the bike you're going to want to ride for the next few years.

(This crappy local news story tells the same story if you're interested in more info without much reading)

I had heard this elsewhere. As if bikes weren't expensive enough! Glad I bought this summer.  In 10 years when I buy my next bike, I'm sure these tariffs will be gone.

I would put it past this stupid country. The amount of complete bs people believe is astonishing.
