20 percent gradient

Corona has taught us that the world can get out of joint. Including side effects. The bicycle industry, for example, could no longer keep up, parts were scarce, prices climbed steeper than any mountain bike. Now comes the descent, with aha effect. Specialized, the American luxury class provider, has first always called for new tariffs with snap breathing guarantee, now follows a broad price reduction of up to 20 percent. The reason given is that falling manufacturing and delivery costs, which are passed on. Presumed reason: Well-filled warehouses and some saturation. The used seller is frustrated, the new bike buyer is better off. An example: E-Mountainbike Turbo Levo Expert, previously 10,700, now new 9600 euros, 22er model 8500 euros.
