Thanks to Bad Economy Bicycles shipping faster with greater variety

July 15, 2009


Thanks to a bad economy bicycles are shipping faster this year than prior years with a greater variety. With a little flexibility great bicycle deals are available this year in a variety of models. Manufactures have introduced both a 7 speed and 3 speed Aluminum bicycle into the market place and with slower sales risk are being taken on introducing a greater variety of products and product lines.

Beach Cruisers continue to dominant the market place and despite Lance Armstrongs heroic effots in the Tour de France it appears that Beach Cruiser Bicycles will continue to be the dominant bicycle in the middle classes of America.

Kids bicycles will be ordered for the Christmas season and again there is greater variety for this coming season. However, as always those that order first will get a better variety because once Christmas bikes are sold reordering does not take place until spring of the following year. So if you are looking for a kids bike order in the last week of November or the first few days of December for your greatest selection.

JUSTBICYCLES.COM; 20 inch Bicycles, 16 inch Bicycles: Kids/childrens bicycles

April 18, 2009

Childrens bicycles are determined by the inseam of the childs pants. It only makes since if the child has a 18 inch pants inseam that they aren’t going to be able to ride a 20 inch bicycle (unless you dangerously place them standing on their tip toes).

So in purchasing a bicycle remember to allow clearance for the cross bar and remember that a bicycle seat will add an additional 6-8 inches.

A beach cruiser is typically a single geared bicycle that you reverse pedal to brake. Made popular in the 1950s by Schwinn, they have since greatly increased in popularity relative to other bicycles on the market. They are best used on flat surfaces and at low speeds and have been known to work on hard packed sand as well. The term “Beach Cruiser” started in 1976 at Recycled Cycles in Newport Beach when Larry Mc Neely Coined the phrase and used it as their Trade Mark for the production of the modern Beach Cruiser.

Beach cruisers generally have heavy, steel frames and wide tires. This combination makes them relatively slow in comparison to either a road bike or a mountain bike. Certainly, this type of bike is not built for hills but for flatter surfaces. However, due to modern, lighter materials, the beach cruiser is reviving and making inroads as a comfort bike, even far from the beach. Beach cruisers are now available with multi-speed gearing system as well.

Christmas Bicycles in short supply . . . Get the details

July 18, 2008

The early shortages of 2008 seem to be returning as concerns the upcoming Christmas season. You must remember that many of the manufactures were unable to get bicycles early in the year due to Chinese floods and earthquakes. Plants in China seemed to have been closed both due to these natural disasters and due to the Olympics. Full inventories were not stocked until August which is traditionally the wind down of the bicycle season. This left some of the largest manufactures with a glut of bicycles that they were unable to sell in time to reinvest profits into the Christmas Inventory.


As a result kids/childrens bicycles for Christmas will be in short supply. BMX, banana seat bicycles, trick bikes, 20 inch bicycles, 16 inch bicycles and 12 inch bicycles will all be in short supply. If you are planning on surprizing your child with a Christmas bicycle you better plan on ordering in September or October and in some cases expect a surcharge, upon delivery, if fuel prices continue to rise (manufactures have stopped the practice of providing flat quote/cost ahead of delivery with the ever rising inflation prices) driving prices upward.

Don’t you miss out get your childs bicycle order in early so when containers come in you have a bicycle “reserved”. Otherwise, expect to take the left overs and pay uptown prices for bargain basement bicycles.


How to decide what your proper bicycle size is . . .

July 5, 2008

Just a quick note to help those purchasing a bicycle.

A lady wrote this afternoon and inquired what bicycle size she should purchase. Admitedly there is some confusion between the different sizes of bike frame and the different sizes of bicycles in general.

Here are the facts;

1. Frame size has primarily to do with your comfort level between the hips and the pedals. If you carry most of your height in your upper body and have very short legs this may be a concern for you.
For most people frame size will not govern which bicycle they will purchase.

2. Wheel or bicycle size. This is the important one and particularly so if you are buying a boys bicycle with a straight cross bar. Remember you must be able to straddle the cross bar and put both feet on the ground comfortably to ride a bicycle. Similarly, if you have to jump from the bicycle seat to get both feet on the ground the cross bar will be a constant reminder that you bought the wrong bicycle.

a. Here is the measurement. Take your pants inseam and add 5-8 inches for the seat and you have the bicycle you should purchase using the wheelbase method. For example if your inseam is 32 inches and you add 5 inches for the seat you have a total 37 inches so you can easily clear the cross bar. A 26 inch bike will work out fine.

b. However, IF your pants inseam is 22 inches and you add 5 inches for the seat your total is 27 inches and not a comfortable margin of clearance on a 26 inch bike. In this circumstance you would get a 24 inch wheelbase bike.

3. Exceptions are if you purchase a womens bike with the exagerated S frame you will not have the cross bar worries but will want to get a bike whose seat you can get onto and off of easily.

Armada of 7 speed bicycles are on their way

July 3, 2008

It has been a summer of bicycle drought. But relief is on its way, maybe. Several manufactures have said that they had three speed and seven (7) speed bicycles that should be arriving on the 15th of July. This will be great news for our Canadian friends with their short summer or the lady in Silverton Colorado that is already worrying about an “early freeze”.

The bad news is that the cost of bikes has risen dramatically. I suppose that isn’t a shock for anyone that has filled their tank lately but still I hate to see bicycles climb in price because it always edges out that element of society that needs bicycles most – kids.

Because of that we will be dedicating a section of our site to bicycle exchanges. People that have a need for a used bike and someone whose children have perhaps outgrown their old BMX.

Just our way of saying THANK YOU for all your years of loyalty.

This has been a hectic year. Earthquakes and flooding in China has caused shortages In the bicycle business. Most customer have been understanding and order early and are willing to wait.

But the stories that break our hearts are the kids. Children that all they wanted for their birthday was a banana seat bicycle or a BMX or some other hard to find bicycle. It was one of those events which set Mike from JustBicycles into action when he found out the parents of an autistic child had placed their order for a bicycle that was still in production. The bike was back ordered and wouldn’t arrive until after the child’s birthday.

But Mike having grown up poor knew what it was like to go without a bicycle. He launched his own one man crusade and spent hours calling other dealers to locate the autistic child a bicycle. Mikes efforts not only proved that he is a superstar but a team member we are all proud of.

Way to go Mike.

2008 Bicycle Shortages

June 15, 2008

This has been a crazy year thus far. Due to the earthquakes and flooding in China bicycles are in short supply. Then if that wasn’t enough the Chinese Government closed some plants due to the Olympics.

If you are ordering a bicycle this year be flexible. The last container we had come in sold out in less than 24 hours. Two more that have not arrived are already almost sold out and they haven’t arrived in port.

Order in advance, be flexible and be patient.

p.s. If you are thinking of getting your child a bicycle for Christmas keep this in mind. You may want to order your bicycle in October or early November so your child gets his Chirstmas Bicycle.
