Cyclecessorizing (UPDATE)

Elaborate extras cater to the increasing number of dedicated cyclists
Implications - According to researchers at Rutgers University, from 1990 to 2009, the number of bike commuters increased by 64 percent in the United States. The percentage has only grown since, with more and more people riding their bikes to and from work, school and leisure activities. Thus, the demand for bike accessories is also increasing, spawning an entire market for supplementary bicycling products. These new and innovative bike trimmings meet the needs of the modern rider, ranging from gloves with illuminated turn signals to fashionable cases for the cyclists' tablets and other gadgets.
