I’m sure covid is to blame for most of it, along with increased demand from people wanting to exercise inside at home…trade war tariffs as well.
Does anyone have any insight into actual ETA’s for their trainers and when they’ll be shipping and meeting orders again? Will they be doing any black friday deals if they can’t even keep stuff in stock at a normal price? Will any retailers (ie. REI) have priority for the stuff they can stock?
I’ve had a kickr core on order for almost two months and no word. Rep’s don’t have any concrete updates to offer.
There’s stock around but the demand is huge and everything is back ordered. So my experience anyway. For many shops securing units is usually going to have to wait 1 to several months atm. Not so bad for Warranty replacement, they should have units reserved for that.
Not just trainers but head units as well. I put a claim in for the button covers falling off my bolt 2.5 months ago. They told me at that time to hold onto it as it functioned fine because it would be 4-6 weeks before they could replace it as there were no units available. They let me know when new ones were in and I shipped it back.
I had the button issue on my Bolt back in August. Unfortunately it was out of warranty but they offered me a 40% discount on any new computer so I immediately bought a Roam. I still have the Bolt but bought a silicon cover for it off Amazon.
