No matter how often you visit your favorite bike shop, it's amazing how many new accessories become available. That's because since bikes are so popular, it's a category with constant innovation and experimentation. Between 1996 and 2000, over 4,200 bike-related patents were issued – that's more than two bike patents a day!
*Put your inventing cap on and don't be afraid to try to market useful, new bike accessories that you come up with. Bicycle accessories can be a lucrative business—the next new cool thing is never far off from making its way to the store.
