So what does a $10,000 dollar bike hint at? I saw at least one that price when I first started looked for an Ebike well over a year ago.
It's like the world's economy is in 'wild-west' mode. No one, including all the so-called financial experts, seems to know what's going to happen.I'm not worried at this point. So much was affected by the pandemic, including supply lines, that I don't think anyone can tell right now what's going to happen. People want quick answers, but this is one of those situations (much like the pandemic itself) where there just aren't any, and we have to wait and see. I suspect, though, that as things continue to return to normal, supply chains work out their temporary kinks, and people get back to work and out and about again, we're going to be ok.
There have been very expensive toys as long as there have been toys, electric, or otherwise .
The article is talking about "hints of the future" and is making a prediction that all bikes might get more expensive due to scarcity. Whether that holds over several years is the question.There are plenty of ebikes out there that do NOT cost nearly as much. Not everyone wants or needs the kind of bike described in this article. Just because a few things cost a ton of money doesn't mean the entire economy is going to tank. I'm very happy with both of my sub $2000 bikes, thanks!
I was shocked enough to find out a carbon-fibre Specialized Diverge gravel bike cost the same as Turbo Vado 5.0. Now, look to performance road bikes with prices well over ten grands. There have always been expensive toys...So what does a $10,000 dollar bike hint at? I saw at least one that price when I first started looked for an Ebike well over a year ago.
