1)make the kids bikes simpler stop putting suspension units on them on the lads bikes - put a dipped crossbar on them semi slick tyres rather than nobbles shimano gears front/rear simple colour schemes kids drop handlebar bikes are out of proportion - to long a reach adults bikes sub £300mtb - ensure semi slick tyres and more upright riding position(taller head tube with adjustable stem) agian - a few models without suspension - makes the bike lighter and cheaper designers to keep the graphics/colours simple good point of sale - ie features and benefits of no suspension/semi slick tyres and adjustable stem and raised front end - ie the leisure market

You missed my point. Maybe it's Tandem who "need to do some research". There's a huge and growing market out there which isn't being restricted in any way by the problems of "retailers". If Tandem aren't producing the right product to meet the demand, that's their problem, not mine!

You are referring generically to "retailers". You need to look specifically at bicycle sales. Evans don't seem to be suffering much (sales this year up 11%). Bicycle sales in the depth of the recession in 2010 were up over 28% ( hTTp://corporate.sky.com/documents/pdf/publications/the_british_cycling_economy ) There is a huge and growing market here (and worldwide). Why is this not reflected in Tandem's figures?

If the retailers are suffering then its inevitable that the next chain in the link will suffer also unless they can sell into overseas markets.

amt, "If you watch the tv series about retail......" Aye, but Tandem aren't retailers. They're manufacturers and wholesalers. Bike sales have boomed during the recession. Besides fashion, health, interest engendered by sporting success and political pressure, the recession itself was a driver as costs pushed people out of their cars onto bikes. Whatever Tandem are doing wrong, it is nothing to do with retail IMHO.

If you watch the tv series about retail presented by Robert Preston you get an idea of how difficult that business is. In the very tough environment numerous businesses have gone to the wall. It was all about cash preservation over the period of the recession. Tandem have come through it in good shape with plenty of cash in the bank to fund what hopefully will be growth on the top line as the economy recovers. Looking forward to the results. It's also good to see a company where directors have been buying shares and not cashing in share options and thus working in the longterm interests of the company.

I haven't posted here for an awfully long time, Castle give up, this management will not change they are accountants. They have no idea how to grow a business as the last x number of years has shown. Frustrated me to death. gg

I don't think it's an issue of online/retail. I've just been to Evans to buy a new bike - looked online then went down to the shop to try - and the place was absolutely humming with bikes flying out of the door. Frankly, if you can't sell bikes in this market, by whatever method, there's something more fundamentally wrong.

Shaun Work out how many bikes we sell each year into how many shops? Then work out the cost of servicing that supply chain. Things change and we need to. To start we develop a range exclusive to sell via the net. Sorry but its the way forward. We are seeing NO growth but its there, taken by others. change now. tiger

I suspect someone has seen the good weather through the Summer and all the bikes on the roads and is thinking where can I invest in that market !! There is certainly a buyer about but my broker says it is fairly small size so far.

Close period so they cannot say anything. Suprised not been picked up somewhere as "the most pro-cycling exposure in the market" with all the cycling hype recently. Results must be a few weeks away. WDid the sun start shining pre June 30th ? I cannot remember. Would be lovely, heaven forbid, to get a positive statement.

hxxp://www.bikebiz.com/news/read/turnover-and-sales-up-but-profits-down-as-evans-invests/015231 Weather and investment in online and stores takes toll on profits Evans Cycles has revealed a rise in sales and turnover in the year till November. According to City AM, sales rose 11 per cent with turnover up £94.3m to £104.9m. However, pre-tax profits down 70 per cent to £269,000 from £893,000. According to Retail Week, the fall is down to investment in new stores, Evan's website, new IT systems - and weather. Evans told RW: "We continued investing in stores and systems despite it being a tough year. We achieved sales growth and flat profits, which we are proud of." There's more financial news from the cycle industry here.

Just back from Sweden where the family get around on bikes, two key differences with trying to cycle in the UK: 1) the bike infrastructure is fantastic, plenty of bike lanes, usually separated from traffic; and 2) bikes just don't get stolen very often: no need to carry locks around you just use the built in locking bolt on the back wheel. It is getting better here but still a long way to go, we just do not have the infrastructure or a real willingness to develop it......and the country seems to be full of thieving bstds....imho Edit: just read the link above.....forgive the parroting rant...

I have just returned from a cruise that took me around the Baltics where cycling is far more popular than here in nearly every country we visited... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-23587916 The UK has a long way to go.
