    Looks like our president is going to make American e-bikes great again.

    https://www.bicycleretailer.com/industry-news/2018/06/19/us-proposes-25-tariff-china-made-e-bikes

    Chinese-made e-bikes, which include bikes sold by Trek, Giant, Raleigh Electric, Pedego and other brands, would be subject to a 25 percent tariff under a proposal released Friday. The tariff, which could take effect in a matter of months, would increase the retail price of the bikes by hundreds of dollars, perhaps enough to make them uncompetitive with e-bikes made elsewhere, and dampening interest in one of the bike industry's most promising sectors.

    Also, GPSs are on the list. Luckily, not Garmin. But if you plan to get a Stages Cycling and Wahoo Fitness GPS, get it now.

    So, you’re saying there are pluses and minuses to every policy?
