Spring 2021 – Buy Your Bike Early!

Specialized road bike and girl by river

Spring is just around the corner! While demand for bikes and bicycle parts continues to be high, know that…

We have bikes! ERIK’S has one of the best bike inventories in the U.S.A. and we are getting new bikes in weekly.

2020 was a year of adaptation at ERIK’S. We’ve expanded the ways you can shop with us and have refined the buying process. With that said, inventory on some bikes will likely still be tight – so buy early!

1. Inventory is moving out as quickly as it arrives

ERIK’S has the deepest inventory of bikes around. Stores are receiving new shipments weekly however, inventory will remain tight all year. If you find the right bike, we recommend you grab it before its gone!

2. Not in stock? Pre-order today!

The recommended way to get a bike that isn’t in stock is to pre-order it. This will ensure you will get the bike when ERIK’S receives a shipment. If you change your mind, you may cancel your order at any time and receive a full refund. (See our return policy for details.) 

This year we expect to sell out of most bike models and sizes at times but with more on order. We estimate most out-of-stock bikes will be delivered within 60-150 days or less.

How to pre-order a bike that is not in stock:


Visit any nearby shop and an ERIK’S staffer can place your bike pre-order for you. Tell them the bike you want, pay for your order, and you’re set! You’ll receive an email when your bike arrives and is ready for pick-up.


For any bike marked “pre-order” on, simply go through the checkout process as you would with any other product. Once purchased, you will get your bike when we receive the next order of that model and we will keep you updated on the status.

3. Covid-19 Protocol

Health and safety is our top priority. We are following all CDC guidelines, as well as state and local ordinances. We’ve also implemented convenient shopping options like Curbside Services and Buy Online, Pick-Up In-Store. 

Be Happy. Keep biking.

Bicycles remain in record demand and the great news is that more people than ever are outside biking! We truly appreciate your patience and understanding; all of us at ERIK’S are working hard every day to serve you and all riders.
