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.

I’m interested in the around the block bike, not sure which seeped to get, I want to ride mainly flat surfaces and occasionally on wide trails pulling a child trailer. Which speed would you suggest?
7 or 21 speed for sure. I have pulled a child trailer myself.
It's nice to have the gears available when you need them.
What is the maximum rider weight capacity for your bikes?
300 lbs. is the maximum weight limit recommended for our bikes.
what is step over height on Arpund the block 24
Standover height is 21"
I’m looking to maybe get this in 21 speed but I don’t know how it would fit my mother size wise. She’s 5’2”
We recommend the height range for 24" Around The Block bikes to be 4'6" to 5'0'', I would recommend that you go for the 26" model Around The Block bike for your mother.
