Crisis-Hit Russian Sports Industry Expects Slow Advance for E-Bikes

MOSCOW, Russia – Renowned names like Shimano, Schwinn, Cube, Specialized, Merida, Haibike and Marin were there through their distributors. And they all, like many of their Russian counterparts, offered e-bikes at the Bike-Expo 2017 show which was held in Moscow last month. However, what became very clear here is that it will take time for e-bikes to become a trend within the crisis-hit Russian sports industry.
