Pre-orders allow customers to purchase items, such as bike builds, ahead of time. This ensures you will get the size and color you want and gets you in line for shipping priority. We typically take pre-orders about a month in advance of when we will start shipping, however, we will note in the product listing the expected date to start shipping.
Important: Given we build each bike to order, the shipping date listed is when we start to build the first orders in line. Given there may be a backlog of orders, it can take several weeks to reach your place in line. Therefore, pre-order doesn't mean your order will ship at the start of the ship date. See either the product page or our inventory / lead time status page for information on when the order might ship at the time of order. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
