I think I’m disinclined to buy a new bike for Christmas regardless of the price. I’d rather wait and see what the new UCI rules are and what the new UCI-compliant frames are going to look like.
On the other hand, after the new rules hit maybe some of the super nice bikes from 2020 will be available on the aftermarket at really nice prices. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a really nice price on a bike that I wasn’t selling.
I’m really on the edge of my seat to see what bikes are going to look like next year…but maybe next year is too early in the design cycle. Don’t even think the new rules are set in stone yet. But 2021 could be the year everybody learns what a compensation triangle is.
