So you want to buy a bicycle?
We want to make the process of choosing the correct bike easy. With the current availability issues the cycling industry is facing, we've created three options for our customers who are shopping for bicycles that are not currently on our showroom floor.

Option 1: No Deposit – General Call Back List
Best for customers shopping around and are unsure of the exact specifications.
No Holds – First Come, First Serve
When a bike ships from the manufacturer, PABS staff calls everyone on the waitlist. Sales are

range in timeframes for arrival dates, and are no longer shopping for alternatives.
