    Better grab a 2020 model while you still can...

    Good luck with a 2020 bike. I haven't had a 2020 bike in the store since May.

    I predict a glut of used bikes on the market once a Covid vaccine is broadly deployed. Upsizing new bike manufacturing capacity may prove to have been a poor choice.

    Well, the vaccine won't be broadly available until latter half of next year at the earliest. Let's hope some of these newbies would stay with riding and see a net gain for the industry moving forward.

    Honestly, they'll probably end up boom/bust exercise equipment eating up space in a garage somewhere.

    Eh, they don't make anything that interests me enough to buy. I'll stick with what I have.

    I hope so. Looking to score a Canyon, Peloton, and Tonal gym for $100 next year

    At least the new Peloton bikes are actually...modern exercise equipment. They actually went and made a decent product, which it should have been all along considering the price

    You know who else increased the prices, restaurants, hair salons, bars (whoever is still around)... etc., the service industry. I have a sneaking suspicion that it won't come down.
