Hello. I noticed low car bike rack inventories.  I am hoping this is due to COVID-19 and higher than usual demand instead of not REI carrying these items ? If REI is still carrying these racks can you provide an idea of when more will be available, in particular hitch-type tray & roof-types? Many thanks


@JoeNag Thanks for reaching out!

You are correct, that the issues we are having with our in stock levels of car bike rack inventory is related to both supply and demand. We are working hard with our vendors to get back in stock, however, with fluid shipping timelines it is very difficult to predict when we will see these items in our distribution centers. It does look like we have a few styles of hitch racks and roof racks for bikes that should be arriving in the next few weeks. You'll need to keep your eye on the website to see when they land.

In the meantime, check out these options that are available to order now:

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
