Since I quit working at the bike shop full time 11 1/2 years ago I go back occasionally and help out when they are short handed. The shop deals in a lot of high end custom bikes and they have a very elite clientele. When I was there full time it wasn't uncommon to sell $4,500- $8,000 bikes so I have rode and build the best of the best. Going back and working occasionally I see all the newest technology coming out. There is no doubt that bikes are better now than then but there isn't any huge improvements. Look at the changes from 1980 to 1990, 1990 to 2000 and 2000 to 2010. 2000 was most definitely a plateau.
