Bicycles in a Pandemic
As we’ve all had to social distance in response to COVID-19 protocols, there has been an increased demand for bikes around the world. Not only are bikes a great safe option for commuters, but a great way to stay physically and mentally healthy while staying safe and distanced from others.
The Global Bike Shortage
This increased demand and momentary shutdown of manufacturing caused a shortage of bikes, (Mostly under $2000), parts, tires and tubes, clothing and equipment. This means a delay in getting new bikes in our store and delays in repairs.
We are not immune to the shortage. As you may have noticed, we have limited availability of bikes in all categories. We have great relationships with our suppliers and and are working diligently to get products into our store. We also are offering pre-orders. This way you can reserve your bike now. When it comes in, yours gets priority. We have hundreds of bikes ordered from our suppliers.
2021 Pre-Order Bikes
We have built this page to give our customers the ability to pre-order bikes we have on order. Many of the ETA's are all over the place, some into summer 2021. We will confirm the estimated time of arrival as best we can. ETA's are very fluid. Your patience is appreciated.
All pre-orders require a 50% deposit. Balance paid when your bike arrives.
If you look at a bike on our webstore, and it is marked as "Backordered - On Order from Supplier" You can click on the "Notify Me When Available" button. Fill in the form. We will get you an ETA for this product as soon as we can.
If you wish to go ahead with the purchase, you can either make a Layaway Payment (Link Below) or click on the "Add to Wish List". On your Wish List, you can move the item to a cart and checkout. If paying by a credit card, we will process 50% of the payment. If paying by E-Transfer, just transfer 50% of the final price.
We will reserve a bike for at least 50% down. Please make a note in the "Special Instructions" space for what bike the deposit is for. The balance will be due when the bike arrives and is assembled. Please, we are not able to hold or store indefinitely.
