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
Will the AroundtheBlock 24" cruiser fit my 9yo who is 4.5 feet and 75 pounds. Your website says 4.6 feet and taller, description on Amazon says 4.3 feet as described below? Sizing Chart The Around the Block men's bike comes in two frame geometry sizes to accommodate a wide range of riders. The 26-inch model fits riders from 5 feet to 6 feet, 2 inches tall. The 24-inch bike is great for riders from 4 feet, 3 inches to 4 feet, 11 inches.
Sorry for the confusion between the 2 sites giving conflicting information.
At 4'5'', the 24" model will work for him and he will have 7" of height growth until the bike will become too small for him.
