2021 BIKES ARE NOW 99.9% SOLD OUT
2021 Bikes Are Now 99.9% Sold Out!
Being a key partner with the largest and best bicycle manufacturer in the world, Giant Bicycles has many advantages. One such advantage is always being on the receiving end of their dedicated and unwavering support for their Giant branded stores. While most North American bike shops saw their bike supply chain dry up last past summer, Giant Canada continued to ship us bikes, which enabled us to keep excited cyclists flowing out our doors with new rides and big smiles on their faces.
But industry wide, bicycles, and parts are in very limited supply, with many items having lead times of 13 to 15 months vs the standard 4 to 6 days. This situation is expected to continue for another year or two at the least. All factories are running at full capacity, but the global consumer demand has, and continues to overwhelm the industry's production facilities ability to build any meaningful inventory for our supply chain.
So, if you were thinking about purchasing a new bike to ride this season, you should have secured it a while ago or be willing to perhaps wait until 2022. This situation is industry wide, not just one we face here at Giant Bicycle Halifax. The global shortage of bicycles, bicycle parts, and accessories is worldwide.
We had the biggest and best in stock inventory in the Maritimes for months, but all good things come to an end. We are now in a position where we have sold through over 99.9% of all our 2021 models, and Giant Canada is also 100% sold out of all models for this calendar year. Yes, bikes are very hard to find, and delivery dates are also a moving target these days due to COVID.
We've created this page to share with you what our industry is facing, and to save you time and frustration by showing you what bikes we have left to come into Canada, and what week of 2021 they will be arriving in our Ontario warehouse. From the warehouse to our shop has taken anywhere from one week to three weeks, and we have absolutely no control over this. We hope everybody understands that COVID restrictions do slow things down, but are necessary for us to get back to some semblance of normal. If you do not see the bike you are looking for on this list, or showing in stock on this website, then we're very sorry, but we can't source it for you. There are no bikes left to order in for 2021. Here is the list of bikes that are still available for pre order. This list is updated once a day.
So, in summary, we have almost no 2021 bikes in stock, we're in the same boat as everybody else, and that won't change until early 2022. We are told information on 2022 models may be available late August, and when that happens, those bikes will be available to pre order, and we'll let you know right here when that happens, but delivery into Canada will not take place until early 2022.
If you plan on visiting, please have a look here to view the latest COVID measures we have in effect.
Thanks for checking this out, and thanks to Giant Canada for their amazing support of Giant Bicycle Halifax during the most challenging couple of years the bike industry has ever faced.
