    The vast majority of people are still buying cheap bikes then. Amazing when you look at Specialized selling 72,000 Giant 117,00 and Cannondale just 10,000. Take it that is just the UK market Mickle?

    Did it say what the total sales where? That looks to be more than a million ... I'd love to know how many adult bikes were sold.
     
  5. Yup, just the UK.

    Very intriguing - I thought (for I-don't-know-what reason) that Cannondale and Specialized sales were roughly equal - shows what I know!
