Show #306 – July 30, 2016
Guests: Marc Sani; Leah Shahum
This week Diane talks with Bicycle Retailer and Industry News‘ Marc Sani about “Future Shock” and how Alvin Toffler‘s seminal work might give us some insight into the dilemmas faced by bicycle dealers today.
With a decision by Quality Bicycle Products to move one of their lines, Salsa Bicycles, into REI, the proverbial poop storm was kicked up by a bevy of dealers and Marc has some great insight into what the industry might want to do to move forward – without kicking and screaming.
Leah, who has a deep understanding of transportation, especially as it relates to the bicycle and pedestrian world, gives us some solid information about what it might take to reach the “Zero Vision” goal.
