* Guest Editorial: Why Cant We Make Bikes In The US?.
Boulder, CO USA ( BRAIN ) -- 03/18/2021
OK, so right from the get-go, I will come clean and tell you that I don't have a background in economics,
finance, or supply chain/logistics. So, perhaps what I am going to write below will be seen as pie-in-the
-sky idealism at best, or total naivete, at worst. I want to know why, aside from the original reason -
Americans wanting less expensive goods cant the bike industry find the will to start manufacturing bikes
and components in the United States again? ( More )
* Broken Chain: Why Not Build More Factories? Heres Why.
Boulder, CO USA ( BRAIN ) -- 03/09/2021
Three years ago, social media feeds filled with colorful, striking images of abandoned share bikes in China,
piled into teetering mountains. They shocked the world, or at least inspired use of shocked emojis for a few
hours.In the Chinese industry, the share-bike collapse lasted more than one news cycle. It may even help
explain why its hard to find bikes in the U.S., which got 88% of its bikes from China last year. After the share
-bike debacle, manufacturers are wary of another boom-bust. ( More )
* ABA-USA BMX Great Northwest Nationals April 09th - 11th, 2021 In Redmond, Oregon Cancelled.
Quote:- We regret to inform you that the 2021 USA BMX Great Northwest nationals has been cancelled
due to Covid restrictions. We are truly heartbroken for our members in the Northwest that were
planning to attend this event. The Redmond event has been a staple on the national schedule for
many years & we cannot wait to bring the event back in the future.
At this time we would like to let everyone know that we are shifting the Lumberjack Nationals that
will take place August 27th-29th at Spokane BMX to a 3-day national. We feel this is the best thing
to do in order to give another score option for the Northwest riders.
We are proud to announce that a national event will still take place during the weekend of April 9th-11th.
We are shifting to Gretna BMX Raceway located in Gretna, Louisiana for the 2-day Bayou Classic Nationals.
Gretna BMX is an awesome track with a great group of volunteers that will have things dialed for all that
attend. We will get the hotels sourced as soon as possible, as well as, the event ad for this National.
As always, we appreciate your patience & understanding as we continue to navigate through these strange times.
