really?

http://www.swivel.com/graphs/show/22618286

avg cost of road bicycle per unit is $806.78 in the US.

Total AVG. for all bikes in US & CANADA is $335.47, but that includes "youth bikes which avg $128 (but that's training wheel bikes which we're not talking about.

Unit sales counts kiddie bikes which of course are purchased more on average. Kids grow, the bikes are cheap shit that self destruct in 6 months anyway.

I thought we were talking about the bikes WE ride? And we were talking about the cost of them, not how many units are sold annually.
