So, what is it that distresses you about your India bicycle alerts good sir? I have a similar alert and they are perfectly understandable to me. I’m a bit of an Indiophile so I’m happy to help.

And Trek? Well given my new job with them I’ll have to wait a bit before I comment, but as with most metrics ] it pays to take a measured approach, it depends on how you define the word “top”.

I saw that article too (though I don’t remember where it was) and immediately thought the same thing. A handful of large Wal-Mart stores probably sell more bikes than Trek and Giant combined. The *world*’s largest bike company probably sells exclusively in China or maybe India. It used to be Flying Pigeon, but they’ve fallen on hard times lately.

No response from Trek yet…

Phil, they all seem to be about some sort of political argument relating to the sale of bikes to students, with a component of impropriety.

I do believe that the “world’s top” was mis-quoted in the article you read. What was stated to the writer was the “top” selling brand in the United States – what is also obviously implied with that statement is to the Independent Bicycle Retail channel. You are all correct, both Giant and Pacific make and sell more bicycles than Trek. Additionally, many are sold to mass-merchants such as Wal-Mart and Toys-R-Us. Thank you for the opportunity to clear up the confusion.

brian

Derek, thank your for clearing that up. You’ll be my new source at Trek.
