Its official: more bikes sold in 99 than 98

Using figures we dont think Mintel or the Bicycle Association will dispute as inaccurate we believe bike production figures in 1999 look set to be 2.387 million, better than 1998 but not as good as either 1996 or 1997.

It would be in the trades best interests for this sort of information to be freely available but in the absence of published figures from the Bicycle Association we have resorted to other means to compile the rounded-up figures below.

The totals for 1999, we feel, are accurate up until September. The figures for the last three months of the year are projections.
