TAWS BIKE GARAGE – Powell River’s Downtown Bike Shop

Where are all the bikes?

We are very thankful to have bikes during this tough time in the world. And as many know, everyone wants one. Our sleepy little industry has been hit pretty hard with higher than expected demand. With the high demand comes a limited supply of bikes and parts. Since the world is experiencing material shortages, reduced manufacturing and freight issues in every industry, it's been tough to get inventory levels back to an acceptable level. Please keep in mind it's not necessarily the bike frame manufactures that are the issue, sometimes it's tires, or shifters or handlebars...  The bike industry is working very hard to mitigate these issues.  We really appreciate everyones patience during this time. 

So, when is your bike coming? That is a very difficult question to answer. Many manufacturers are not giving any ETA's on bikes/parts until they have them in hand and are ready to ship them to us. There are too many balls in the air to give accurate arrival times any more than 2 weeks down the road. If we have you on a list for a particular bike, when it is ready to ship to us, we will be in contact with you to let you know. If there is a bike you are interested in, or would like to buy, we are happy to add your name to the list. Please contact us to do so. 

We appreciate your patience, and we are doing what we can to get riders on bikes. Thank you for all your support!
