I have a 17 years old MTB but itís in very good Nick but bits getting harder to source.
I also have a 3 year old road bike which is great but a gravel bike would be better. There were no gravel bikes 3 years ago.
I am looking at e bikes but the weight of them is a bit of a no- no, an eMTB is about 25kg or more, the lifting of one onto my car cycle rack is too much.
A e road bike which weigh about 12 + kg I think I could manage.
Today I went into my local bike shop and asked about the availability. If I order this week delivery would be about March 2022 . That is a change from 6 weeks ago a September/October delivery quoted.
I may try another cycle shop but that would be another make and another £1,000 on top.
There is also a shortage of bike components due to Covid and maybe the Suez Canal blockage.
