Looking for a bike only to find out it's not available?  This is why you should pre-order the bike you want ASAP.  We are currently out of stock on many bikes and we expect the bike shortage to continue through the 2021 season.  

When you pre-order a bike, you'll hold your spot in line for the bike when it arrives.  Some bikes will be available in spring 2021 or late 2021 or even early 2022. 

You can pre-order the bike online.  If the bike will not be available within 2 weeks, we will take a $50.00 deposit.  The balance due will be charged when you pick up the bike or when the bike is shipped.  If you prefer to pay for the bike in full at the time of purchase, please request this as your checking out online in the "comment" field. 

If for any reason you decide to cancel the order, the deposit is refundable.

WHEN WILL MY BIKE BE AVAILABLE?

You can call or email us and we will do our best to give you an ETA when you place the pre-order.   However due to the increased demand, manufacturing delays, shipping logistics, the availability dates may change at anytime.  We ask that you keep in contact with our staff for any updates on availability.   Many times there will be delays but we are not notified of these changes.  If you keep in contact with our staff, they can give you the most recent ETA.
