    Vittoria tire scarcity

    Had to split an order up for a pair of Mezcals in 27.5x2.1 between vendors in order to get it filled.

    Launch of new stuff imminent? First signs of problems with new ownership? Covid related bike surge + supply problems?

    Right?!?! My Ripley order was delayed. Now when I finally do get it I won't have tires to put on it?!?! I have half a mind to ask to speak to the Pandemic manager!

    Didn't an Italian capital investment company just buy out Vittoria?

    I ordered my frame and fork (Blue, L) July 6th or so. At the time, I was quoted 3-4 weeks. But more recently I was told early September... Who knows if that will hold.

    When did you order yours and did you order a complete bike?

    I have my fingers crossed for us!

    That's what I hear. The question is how big is their backlog? According to one local shop they have almost 200 Ibis frames/bikes on order!

    Depending on what size/color you might be waiting a while longer, this is from their B2B site...

    Edit: on topic, I just had to order Vittora tires from 2 different places to get what I wanted. I looked at overseas but even there couldn't get what I wanted and shipping is dealbreaker unless you order in bulk.

    Thx for link! Question, so I ordered a complete bike blue Ripley fox factory suspension on July 22. My dealer says it should be here hopefully first week September. Is he being optimistic?

    Hard to say, your order might be in the queue getting fulfilled vs what the site says but only Ibis knows. Hopefully your dealer is being straight, they should be able to see the status. My LBS told me about a month ago everything is a shit show and no availability on some bikes until 2021....

    The impending shortages across the industry are real and about to get realer.

    Hub orders I placed in early July *might* get filled by late Sept.

    Hub orders I placed this month are looking like early January fulfillment.

    Well, that's not very encouraging...

    I was told by the shop that there was a cut off in late July/early August and if you were after that, you can expect a December delivery. I'm just hoping that my order (early July) will get filled with the current wave. Parts are starting to come in and riding the gravel bike as my MTB is getting a little old.
