Let's face it, the economy is in the toilet. Whether or not it's an official recession really doesn't matter at this stage. Home sales through much of the country are at the lowest levels in decades, gas prices and other necessities are through the roof and trying to get financing on bikes is difficult today. So, my questions to you are: Is the economy keeping you from buying a new or used bike? Are you feeling the pinch of today's economic environment? Are you considering a bike as a fuel-efficient method of transportation? Post your responses here.
