5 Facts About The Bike Shortage
1. The 2020 bike shortage has not improved, it has become worse.
- Many bike models will continue to be in shorter supply in 2021 & 2022 than they were in 2020.
2. Buying a bike in 2021 is all about pre-ordering.
- In the past you would have been able to select a bike, go for a test ride, and buy a bike in store on the same day. You now have to pre-order bikes to secure a bike for later this year or early 2022.
3. You will have to pre-order now to ensure you get a bike before 2023.
- If you want a bike in 2022 you will have to pre-order in 2021. Many of the bikes we are receiving now were pre-ordered by customers in the summer/fall of 2020, and many of the pre-orers we are now processing are for late 2021 to early 2022.
4. With continuing supply challenges, we cannot guarantee the following:
- Delivery dates – Estimated delivery dates are subject to change.
- Prices – are subject to change.
- Models – See below
5. Models are subject to change from one model year to the next.
- As delivery dates get pushed farther out, we anticipate some 2021 models may get updated to 2022 versions of the same.
- Updated 2022 versions are highly likely to have different parts, colour and prices than the 2021 versions they have replaced.
