Many of their 20 inch bikes are on pre-order only. While their 12-14 inch and higher-end 24-27.5inch bikes remain in stock and ready to ship.

From the Great White North, Norco is keeping build quality in check by offering curbside pickup at their authorized bike shop dealers.

Also, your local Norco dealer may have the exact bike you’re looking for in stock, so don’t let the company’s web inventory be the end-all to your search…call your local shop! (Side note: JensonUSA has the Norco Rampage kids MTB in stock right now!)

REI is doing its part to get bikes to your front door by offering shipping on all bikes. Naturally, some assembly is required, and they still offer curbside pickup should you not feel comfortable assembling it yourself. Curbside pickup may be a more reliable option seeing that there aren’t any notes of which models are readily available. Some orders may be delayed up to 3 weeks. But, they have a MASSIVE selection of bikes for the whole family, check out our complete REI roundup to see them all.

Trailcraft Cycles

Trailcraft Cycles, a Colorado-based custom kid’s bike manufacturer, continues to send high-end youth bikes nationwide. However, due to recent demand, they are currently expecting orders to be fulfilled in 2+ weeks. It may be worth the wait for those of you looking to treat your kids to a quality bike that’s ready for a range of trails. They cover everything from 20″ to 27.5+, with hardtail and full suspension bikes for all types of terrain and riders.

Trek

Ok, so this one is for the young at heart and their kids. For a limited time, Trek is offering free home delivery on all online bike orders. They’re making it as simple as possible by having their dealers build and deliver each order. The only catch is finding your model and size in stock. At the time of reporting, many models are classified as coming soon online but may have stock available at a local Trek dealer. So if there’s a bike you’d specifically like, there’s a good chance a location in your region has one. If not, their warehouses will be receiving more inventory soon (no timeline given).

woom Bikes

For a brand whose business model orbits consumer direct sales, and more specifically children’s bikes, woom Bikes stand to be a good option for those seeking a quality kid’s bike with reputable customer service to back it. Their lineup meet’s the needs of kids ages 1.5 – 14y/o who are interested in cruising the culs-de-sac and paved areas, along with those hitting the dirt. However, at this time their stock is limited due to demand. Currently, their 1 PLUS, 2 and 3 models are available for pre-order and can be expected by mid to late June. Unfortunately, all other models are out of stock with no restock date available (they will be back eventually).

Priority Bicycles

Priority Bicycles’ Start model comes in 16″, 20″ and 24″ wheel sizes, offering a clean, maintenance-free Gates belt drive and Shimano drivetrain. It’s a bike made for ripping around town, on the dirt path, and cutting across the field thanks to multi-terrain tires and a lightweight aluminum frame. Lots of colors help it match any kids’ taste, too! Some colors and sizes backordered until July or August, but not all, so check quick!

Felt Bicycles

This one’s for the slightly taller kids… Felt Bicycles makes a lot of their bikes in really, really small sizes. Their XS bikes come in road, city and mountain bike varieties, and here’s the best part: A lot of them are in stock now, and can ship directly to a dealer for assembly within 7 days! Worth a look if you just can’t wait! This Verza Speed commuter bike comes with hydraulic disc brakes and a speedy setup, and comes in a size 47 (with a standover height under 25″…627mm to be exact).

Try your Local Bike Shop

Still can’t find anything? Call your local bike shop! Many of them have great used bikes, and they’ll have intel on when new bikes are arriving. They might even know customers with bikes whose kids have outgrown them but aren’t listing things on Craigslist…which is yet another reason to build a good relationship with and support your local bike shop, too!

    • If you know of other kids’ bikes that are actually in stock right now, feel free to add them in the comments. So many bikes are out of stock right now, we were trying to focus on things you could actually buy and receive relatively quickly.

  1. Second the Cleary comment. I recently purchased a Cleary hedgehog to follow a gecko I got last year.. Cleary need a shout out here for sure.

    My 4 yo loves his gecko. We are up to 4 mile rides together.

  2. The REEB is hilarious. $1800 for a steel hardtail with 24″ wheels, and that’s just the price for the frameset. Well I guess some kid will have rich parents, and I’m usually a person who rolls my eyes when someone complains about cost!

    Sadly my kid will just have to make do with his $350 Jamis 24″ MTB. He’d have to show me some real skills for me to want to go above $500, let alone $3900 for a bike, LOL.
