What to expect from your LBS in the summer of 2021
Updated: May 6
Just like 2020 did, Covid-19 has thrown the bicycle industry a curve ball.
Please also read our COVID PROTOCOLS before coming to the store.
So, before you head into Forks Bicycle Shop, here's the lay of the land:
inflation hit the bike industry first - pricing on everything (the limited stock we do have) has gone up and will continue to go up
we are still waiting for things we placed on order in August 2020
do we know when more bikes or other inventory will show? No
do we know the price? No
are we taking orders or deposits on things we can't control? No
Thanks to Peloton, good luck finding a shoe in any average women's shoe size
If you see a bike that fits you, and fits your budget, buy it - who knows when another will be found. This isn't a hard sales pitch.... 'dems the facts.
We will not be selling service parts. Any parts requiring installation will be installed by Forks Bicycle Shop. To be clear: you cannot buy 'just a chain' or 'just a cassette' etc from Forks Bicycle Shop in 2021.
No next day service.
Massive demand for SERVICE has resulted in a 4-week backlog on repair bikes at a minimum. We do not take/make appointments.
TIP: Your best strategy is to follow @ForksBicycleShop on Instagram. Any new inventory or new updates will be posted there FIRST.
