Economic indicator: Spending on high end mountain bikes improves

There’s an interesting article on Forbes.com about sales of high-end mountain bikes from Scott in southern California and Arizona. Apparently sales are picking up after dropping last quarter and many retailers are reporting sales at or above year-ago levels. The author surmises this may be an indicator of an improving economy…

I don’t know about you but one thing the economy will never affect is my riding. Once you’ve made the initial investment in MTB gear it’s practically free to get out and ride the local trails. Here’s to hoping that mountain bikers with fat wallets and an itch for new bikes can get this economy back on track!
