Taiwan is a kingdom of bike manufacturing. There are two world famous brand "Giant" & "Merrida".The Giant just announced that their annual bonus would be 23 months. "23 months", wow!!! Tthat means you work for one year then you will get pay for 3 years almost. That's the most I ever heard.
But when I went to the retailers, their price is sky high. Even basic level for newcomer also costs 12 thousands. I won't pay that much to buy a bike. It's too expensive. I think 2 or 3 thousands would be the acceptable price. 5 thousands is my limit.
We always heard people said Taiwan is the kingdom of bike manufacturing. In that case, why the price in Taiwan is so high? I don't understand. Our government always said that we should buy the products made in Taiwan mostly. I want to support our own brand, but it seems I also need to pay much more. Wasn't it ridiculous? 23 months bonus and the price for Taiwanese is still so high? I still don't understand... why?
