Supply issue with kid's bike?
« on: April 06, 2021, 09:53:11 pm »
There's been supply issues with adult bikes, is it the same with kids bikes? I can't get a frog 62 anywhere and lead time is great right now.

The same factors apply; Far Eastern factory capacity reductions due to Covid, container ships stuck outside Felixstowe due to volume of traffic, and the new faffage of shipping to the UK from a European hub, if this is the case.
And Darkness and Decay and the Coronavirus held illimitable dominion over all.

I think we have some, I’ll check when I get in and drop you a pm. Frog is one of the few bike brands we have a lot of.

Frogs are "made" in the UK - what that really means I don't know, probably just the frames and then assembled - but they're still going to be reliant on imported parts and the issues Roger highlights

We have two in stock, a purple and a red. They’re not built so shipping would be simple.
