Since the response to the Global Pandemic in mid-March, bicycle demand has increased significantly as it is an outdoor activity and one of the few things that people across the country could enjoy during this time in human history.
We have sold out of many of our models, and we are currently offering an option to "Pre-Order" incoming inventory from our factories. This is a program we have employed so that riders who truly are looking for a new bicycle to ride during these historic times.
HOW PRE-ORDERING A BICYCLE WORKS
In the most basic sense, it is a reservation on future inventory yet to be ready for sale to riders. On the product page of the bike you wish to order, you will either see a button to "Notify Me When In Stock" or to "Pre-Order" the bicycle. If the "Add To Cart" or "Buy It Now" buttons are active, your bike is in immediate stock and will usually ship within 3-5 business days.
If the "Notify Me When In Stock" button is present, this means that we do not have reliable delivery dates available, so we don't make the promise that we will ship on a specific date, when in fact we do not have verification that it will. The best thing to do is to sign up for the email notification when it is shown on the product page of the bicycle you would like to order.
Please note, when you receive a stock notification, it may very well be a notice that "Pre-Order" is now available for the specific bicycle you are interested in.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the complexity of international logistics, and the number of suppliers that provide all the materials to build and manufacture our bicycles, shipping delivery times are subject to change. With the global Pandemic added to the situation, it makes delivery dates dificult to predict. We will email you updates and expected shipping date changes if we experience any during the time of your pre-order.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I need help assembling the seat part as the instructions don’t shoe all the pieces or where they go.
Did the mounting bracket come apart?
The brackets are a pain to put back together, we can send you a whole new seat.
Contact our returns department at email@example.com, they will get you set up.
Can you get the single speed with rear hand brakes
Unfortunately, we do not have any single-speed models that feature a rear freewheel and handbrakes. They will all have rear coaster brakes, and some will have an additional hand brake for the front wheel.
Can I tow a kid using this bike or would a bike with more speeds be better?
I would recommend that you get a bike with at least 7 speeds if you are going to be towing a child carrier or trailer.
Thank you and please let us know if you have any other questions.
What will fit me better, 24” or 26”? I am about 5’1”-5’2”
Greetings, and thank you for your question.
For you, a 26" model Around The Block will fit you better than the 24" model.
You very close to the shortest height recommendation, but I think you will be happier and more comfortable on the 26" sized bike.
All the best!
