Thousand Oaks, CA (December 19, 2018) – "No matter what happens between the U.S. and the Peoples Republic of China concerning trade and tariffs, bringing bicycle assembly and manufacturing back to America is a win-win for now and the future," said Jay Townley, resident Futurist for Human Powered Solutions, LLC (HPS), a New-Wave Consultancy to the Micromobility sector.

"Before the 2016 election the reshoring of bicycle assembly and manufacturing began to find its legs with Kent International establishing Bicycle Corporation of America (BCA) in South Carolina and Detroit Bikes establishing a facility in Detroit, Michigan, along with several other start-ups and expansion or relocation of existing domestic assembly and manufacturing operations.

"While still small in relation to the overall U.S. bicycle market that is import dependent, this future thinking reshoring movement has real economic legs to stand on because of growing trends in landed cost parity, and has attracted the support of Walmart, America's largest retailer, and the largest seller of bicycles to consumers," concluded Townley.
