john.k said:top line Chinese bike,maybe $1000
Reminds me of an Aussie Crawl song berating wankers with $100 pushies! You mightn't have bought the usual Chinese made bike for a while, at least with a "reputable" sticker attached, methinks.
Picked up a new bike on Friday 2 weeks after order placed. Supply chain issues from the pandemic seem to be largely resolved here for low and mid range bikes (proximity to manufacturers). Must have been 3/400 mountain bikes alone in boxes overflowing the shop. The high end, 10k and up mountain and road bikes are still backlogged.
