Phoenix, AZ: The National Bicycle Dealers Association, in partnership with Jay Townley and Associates, today released the 2018 version of their annual report on the state of the US specialty bicycle retailer market.

The 103-page report, which draws from many diverse sources of information, is purchased and implemented by a variety of businesses. "I've studied these reports extensively and implemented changes to my shops based on the data, " noted Kent Cranford, NBDA Board chair.

"And most of the folks that have been buying the reports were vendors, investors, consultants, and new bicycle retailers looking for the answers to success," Cranford concluded.

The cost of the report is $399, with a discounted price of $299 for NBDA members.

In addition to the ongoing topics that have been included in the report since its inception in 2000, Townley has added three new topics that we are excited to share. The new research includes ride share and its market impact, electric bikes, and the bike shop of the future. See the full Table of Contents here.

"2018 was a seminal year for our industry in general and retailers in particular," Townley said. "Many of the key trends that came to the fore were just wisps as recently as 2016."

"The NBDA and its members will benefit from this market report that shows the statistical basis for the future, with definable trends based on high probability assumptions. I'm really excited to get this information out to the bike industry and broader-based users as well," concluded Townley.

To purchase the report, and to learn more about other exclusive NBDA reports and benefits, go to or contact NBDA President Brandee Lepak.
