2021 Is Here, Well Sort Of!
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 have seen their bike supply chain dry up this past summer, Giant Canada has continued to ship us bikes, which has enabled us to keep excited cyclists flowing out our doors with new rides and big smiles on their faces.
We still have the largest selection of 2021 bikes in the Maritimes, with more shipping to us every week, but here is something you need to know. Industry wide, parts, and bicycles are still in very limited supply, with many items having lead times of 4 to 6 months vs the standard 4 to 6 days.
So, if you're thinking about purchasing a new bike to ride during the 2021 season, you'll have to secure it within the first couple of months in 2021 or be willing to wait until until 2022. This reality is industry wide, not just a situation we face here at Giant Halifax.
If you want your bike repaired, parts will be much harder for us to source, or in some cases impossible to secure near term, as independent retailers like us go head-to-head against huge factories to gain access to parts that are normally accessible on a daily basis.
So, in summary, we have 2021 bikes in stock, ready for purchase, in solid quantities, and others with short delivery timelines. We're here to help, and in person is always the best way to get the best info, but we'll leave that up to you.
