'We can't keep up': Demand amid COVID-19 leaves few bicycles in Kansas City shops

Silver lining?..


Two dozen bicycles line the front window of Midwest Cyclery’s bike shop in Midtown Kansas City. But these bikes aren’t for sale. They’re waiting for repairs.

Owner Christina Decker said she’d normally never have used bikes on display. But after a surge in sales the past few months due to the coronavirus pandemic, combined with a manufacturing shortage, Kansas City area bike shops are low on stock and backed up on repairs.

“Our shop is now inundated with 140-plus repairs waiting to be done,” Decker said. “The amount of repairs that we have in reflects the lack of bikes we don’t have.”
