STOCK AVAILABILTY UPDATE 1/12/20
2020 continues to be an exciting year for the bicycle business and we are working hard to deliver the bikes you need as soon as possible.
A recent addition to the challenges we are dealing with is getting products shipped in a timely manner from our vendors across the world. The global container shipping industry is running at 100% capacity and we are seeing additional time needed to receive, unload and deliver Bikes from European ports as they run with restricted capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions. This has resulted in More unexpected delays on some models.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Supply Chain Update
The pandemic caused a surge in global bike demand, wiping out retailer stock, distributor stock and put pressure on the supply chain.
Fox will no longer quote a lead time
Rock Shox quote 250 days
Suntour and Tektro quote 210 days
Shimano stating July to October ‘21 with many dates already in calendar year ‘22
With this level of uncertainty there is no clear indication when MY 21 / 22 will arrive.
Whilst the Supp;iers shut Their MY21 order book in August, they’ve agreed we can order more MY21. Many bikes would have been run on models with a different colour and a minor spec tweak. The issue for everyone in the supply chain is having something to sell.
Expected dates are a long time in the future. The Manofacturers have accepted orders but stated production dates are all subject to component availability, a huge unknown at this stage.
We appreciate that there’s huge uncertainty for you .
The Bike Manufacturers can’t tell us when we are getting bikes if component suppliers can’t tell them when they are providing the parts. .
Thanks for your support, and rest assured we are doing everything we can to get bikes here as quickly as we can.
