Last month our friends at White Industries were subject to a complete shutdown for several weeks last month due to COVID. They have since re-opened and while production and inventory are back to normal, restrictions on the number of staff assembling and shipping orders mean longer wait times.
Stelbel's stainless steel Antenore Disc is a future-past wonder bike that is all about going fast and looking classy. This is a bike that you don't want to miss because the while the whole looks stunning, the details are every bit as sweet.
Currently we're seeing more frequent delays with international shipments sent using USPS First Class International (which is used for our Free International Shipping offer).
This is due to the COVID situation which means there are much fewer passenger flights leaving the USA. these passenger flights are normally used for USPS shipments. Its a problem that we've noticed is affecting many online retailers in the bicycle industry.
Just in time for the final pre-order of Chris King's Matte Bourbon, Curve Cycling sent us photos of one of their recent builds, and if this isn't a perfect candidate for being a Bling Build, we don't know what is!
First up, the irony of a blog post about a travel bike right now is not lost on us! but this project has been in the works since the end of last year, and we're looking forward to when the world gets back to normal and travel restrictions are lifted. So with this optimism in mind lets proceed with another one of our creative & resourceful AVT re-build projects.
We know that many of you, like us here at AVT live in areas which are now subject to varying degrees of stay inside orders. Much as we'd prefer to be riding in the hills around Ashland we've switched inside to using the home trainer.
Santa Cruz Reserve wheels are handbuilt to order on some of the highest quality carbon rims on the market.
Everything from the thickness of the rim beads to the external spoke hole reinforcements comes purely from Santa Cruz's experience of knowing what riders need at every level—from international racing to your local trails.

We aim to ship out the majority of orders within 2-5 days of receiving your order. Many orders are assembled-to-order, or ordered on demand from our suppliers so can take a little longer than some other online retailers to ship out (we're a small independent retailer, not Amazon Prime!).
This allows us to offer you a much wider range of colors & specs at all times, but please consider this when ordering.
USPS is our default shipping method so most US domestic orders will take 2-5 days to arrive. For international orders this does take longer (up to 10 days in some cases), please choose an expedited shipping option from UPS or FEDEX when you checkout if you need parts faster than this!
Any questions on specs, colors, technical details please contact us.
