The bike industry saw a number of changes this past decade. The bikers cannot stop it for it was the market that dictated that we should go 10 speed, 11 speed and now 12 speed. The wheel diameter for the Mountain bike also evolved from 26 inches to 29 inches then to 27.5 inches. Tire fatness saw its share of change due to the constant movement of the bike industry so that the consumers continually spend and buy goods which the bike industry leaders feed the market. A lot of development and research were also poured into the Electric bike category, getting the brands to join the band wagon and slapped an electric motor into the otherwise conventional bicycle.
Let’s just call it CHANGE. We cannot avoid it, we cannot deny it, so let us just embrace and cuddle with it.
For the cycling purists, yes, we can still uphold the classics, but we should also morph and go with the wave of transformation. If not, we shall be dinosaurs in this constantly evolving landscape of bikes.
Let us attend bike gatherings, let us stay friends with the bike brands, let us ride with others on critical mass rides… besides, isn’t cycling all about having fun?
Here’s to a better 2020!
