Is REI experiencing a bike shortage similar to the national trend?

We keep reading about a national bike shortage. Have you found this to be the case at REI and among others in the field?

@JibeWithUs thanks for reaching out! As you mentioned, bike retailers are in a very dynamic situation right now and bike inventory levels are highly variable for many. At the co-op, some of our bike brands and models remain nicely in-stock, while others are a little more spotty. We are working closely with our cycling vendors to offer as much availability as possible. With that said, bikes are selling quickly (especially with our Anniversary Sale!), which has resulted in some delivery and service delays. Finally, to help our customers keep riding their existing bikes that may just need a little repair, we are offering zero-contact bike services in many of our stores around the country. 

Hope this helps; thanks again for asking!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
