“My concern is regarding the United States Trade Representative’s proposal to increase the duty on goods from China by 10, or possibly 25, percent. If approved, this proposal will damage my business by making bicycles and accessories more expensive for my customers…A 10 percent tariff increase will likely result in an increase of more than $100 million in tariff costs for our industry a 25 percent tariff increase would cost more than $250 million… My business will be faced with limited options to confront what is effectively a 10 percent increase in our production costs. A tariff increase of this magnitude will inevitably be born by the American customer as we are forced to increase prices in order to maintain profitability.”
