Alfine IGH hubs out of stock?

I've been searching all the usual big U.S. online bike stores and yet to find anyone with Alfine internally geared hub available. Is this a seasonal thing or am I just not looking in the right place?

Thanks!

If you don't need the Alfine's disc brake mount, the Nexus SG-8R36 has an identical internal mechanism and is usually ~20% less expensive.

Harris still has 36H in silver and black. Last year Shimano ran out in the US, I expect they'll run out again this year.
