Just to keep on poking the proverbial issue with a stick..
The new poll is about your next bike purchase. It's deliberately restrictive in that it asks about buying a NEW MTB ie not 2nd hand and if your intention is to buy in the next 12 months.
There's a catch all answer of 'I'm not planning to buy a new bike in the next 12 months'.
So it will be interesting to compare the results of this with the data we got from the current bike wheel size survey we did a week or so back.
So this is about buying intent and may perhaps give us insight into how much the promotion/reality/hype has affected us all
The poll is on the front page BTW
