Winter 2021 Update and Day 6 Revelation E-Bike
I am sure all of you feel the same way I do and are pleased to have the year 2020 behind us! But the 2021 will still provide us with a few challenges. But challenges with selling Day 6 bikes are not new to me, for readers who have purchased a Day 6 bike from me you will understand.
The good news is that I do have Day 6 bikes in stock. The bad news is that these bikes are in a warehouse close to me but on the other side of the U.S. border. Even with the U.S./ Canada border closed to all but essential travel I was successful in importing my stock last Spring and early Summer. With my recent attempt to import in early January I was not able to cross the border. My previous crossings were permitted because importing my stock was essential to my business. There has been a change of the interpretation of this policy which means my Day 6 bicycle stock will remain unavailable for the time being.
Of this shipment several of the bikes are presold, the remaining four bikes I have added to the Day 6 inventory. To prevent someone from placing an order before I am able to ship I have password protected the checkout page.
Day 6 Bikes Added To Inventory
Looking Ahead For 2021
This Spring Day 6 are expecting their next shipment which will include Samson Bikes. The Journey will not be available until a Summer shipment and because of a shortage of the Shimano Nexus 8 geared hub. The next shipment of Journeys will be equipped with the Shimano Nexus 7 geared hub.
Day 6 Electric Assist
- I have yet to import a Day 6 electric assist bicycle. There are two reasons. One, adding the comparative electric components has cost less in Canada than the U.S. Two, I have felt it was in the customers best interest that if they needed electric assist then they have it added from a local bike shop for better support and service. With Day 6 adding a new electric assist bike this Spring this situation may change. The Day 6 Revelation E-bike will have all the comforts of the other Day 6 bikes plus these features,
- 48volt/500 watt Bafang rear hub motor
- 14 amp hour lithium ion battery, range of 55 km with no pedaling on the flat
- 10 speeds
- 26×2.2 Kenda Kwik Drumlin tires
- Disk brakes
