You have a good point though.Hate to sound like a car salesman or real estate person, but if you want to actually ride anything this year, you want to buy it asap. Every nice weather weekend now is going to deplete the in stock supply faster than last year. I bought a spare ebike last August because I realized I’d be dead in the water if my bike quit for some reason.
The stuff you’re looking at all passes muster from where I sit. 70 this summer, did just under 4000 miles last year. These things absolutely changed my life.
As weather gets nicer, people will be looking for ebikes even more.
I don't think supply chain is going to get better anytime soon.
I think the current wait time is well over a year.
Bolton Ebike on YouTube said that their manufacture in China can't keep up with the demand.
His batch order back in 2020 won't show up til the end of 2021 or early 2022.
