The technological conservatism of bicycle manufacturers is a reflection of the kinds of demand they are trying to meet. The only cyclist seriously interested in innovation and willing to pay for it are bicycle racers. Therefore, innovation in bicycle technology is limited by what authorities will accept as standard for purpose of competition in bicycle races.

Which of following is an assumption made in drawing the conclusion above?

(A) The market for cheap, traditional bicycle cannot expand unless the market for high-performance competition bicycles expands.

(B) High-performance bicycles are likely to be improved more as a result of technological innovations developed in small workshops than as a result of technological innovations developed in major manufacturing concerns.

(C) Bicycle racers do not generate a strong demand for innovations that fall outside what is officially recognized as standard for purpose of competition.

(D) The technology conservatism of bicycle manufacturers results primarily from their desire to manufacturer a product that can be sold without being altered to suit different national markets.

(E) The authorities who set standards for high-performance bicycle racing do not keep informed about innovative bicycle design.

How negation technique works here ? I can't understand how the argument fails when I negate choice (C). Please help GMATinsight

The Logic of Assumption is Simple : 2+3 = 5

The question states that the bicycle manufacturers are technological conservative because
1) They favour the market demand and produce accordingly

Which is clear indication that though Bicycle racers might want technological innovation but the demand is certainly not strong enough outside what authorities limit

therefore clear answer is Option C

(C) Bicycle racers do not generate a strong demand for innovations that fall outside what is officially recognized as standard for purpose of competition.

Another approach to answer is keywords ' Strong demand' and 'purpose of competition'
