Where to shop for bicycle accessories to get the best bargains is a topic of conversation amongst cyclists on the Sunday morning spin. Well firstly bicycle accessories means different things to different cyclists. Some cyclists buy bike accessories that lend themselves to commuting such as racks and baskets to carry goods and other items while the more advanced cyclist tends to buy accessories to give them an sporting edge be that clothing or parts.
From cycling helmets to clothing apparel and everything in between those two wheels go into making cycling accessories a multi-million dollar market, in fact US cyclists spend over fifteen million dollars a month on bicycle accessories. The bicycle market is wheeling along at speed as more and more people see the health and fitness benefits of regular cycle exercise. Over 1% of the USA commuter population cycle to work (Alliance for Biking & Walking).
Bicycle parts and most cycling accessories are now being purchased online as this offers the convenience and the discounts on offer to a cyclist (as an online bicycle shop can stock 1000’s more lines than a shop) over the traditional bike shop although these still have an important role to play in bicycle retailing.
