Tero Marjamäki, Blocket’s press manager, believes that this is primarily due to the lack of newly produced bicycles. Bicycle parts are difficult to reach in the transports and the bicycles can therefore not be mounted, therefore the waiting time is long.
Prices are falling
The other two factors he sees are the health trend, that you want to get out and about and maybe plan a holiday at home in Sweden, and a sustainability trend, that you would rather cycle than take the car for the sake of the environment.
The increase has affected the price, but in different ways. For the most part, the increased supply has caused prices to fall significantly – in Jönköping County the median price is SEK 1,825, which is minus 66 percent compared with the year before.
Below is a clip with Johanna in Jönköping who rides a bike all year round.
