JustBicycles Policy on Back Orders – A Helpful Suggestion

I just fielded an email where a customer wanted a specific bike. In this case it was a 7 speed beach cruiser bicycle with pink rims. But we get these inquiries farly frequently.

Here is the scoop . . .

In most cases there are many, many customers seeking the same bike as you. Bikes are manufactured in limited quantitites so that manufactures don’t get “stuck” with last years models. If you want a specific bike plan on pre-purchasing it and plan on waiting. Most times the wait is 1-4 weeks but for a specific “hot” bike sometimes the wait list goes into months.

For example last Christmas the hot bike was a orange beach cruiser. If we had a stream of this bicycle reaching five miles we could have sold them ALL. People were calling just before Christmas offering $500-$700 for this $200 bicycle. It was that hot. Smart customers had placed their orders back in October – November. Likewise, customers wanting a summer beach cruiser order in March.

So if you have specific bicycle needs pre-order the bicycle and be patient. Otherwise be flexible, be patient and plan on a good bicycle ride at a good price.
