Welcome to the Road Is Dead Episode 11. In this episode I take the opportunity to drive everyone through a bit of the history of how we ended up in the current state of the bike industry as we know it from a retail perspective. Some if it is rather basic but there are tidbits in there that even the most stalwart veteran of the industry will find thought provoking. Many who know me have probably heard this discussion in parts before but most likely not all laid out in this format. I actually took notes and tried to make it concise and coherent.
I'm timing this so people can listen while on their way or while at Interbike. It might spur you to ask some deeper questions over dinner and drinks with individuals whose roles are actually more nemesis than ally.
The next step: open invite to industry insiders to partake in a roundtable discussion that will become one of our future podcasts. We will have to limit the panel and not many will want to go on record so if you have the intestinal fortitude to endure then step up and drop me a line.
