They seem to be in short supply

I road her to town this morning.

This one I was into crawling gear early , but it was like putting the bike in four wheel drive.
Once out itís mostly rolling hills around town except for one coming out from the town pond . But in first gear I just crept right up it . 7.5 miles total .

Oh I stopped once , for about two minutes to snap a picture at the town pond .
Very nice. I would love to have one.
I tried to find a Electra Lux Fat Tire 7D and they are not available around here in central Florida and I am not sure i was able to find one anywhere. Any reason they might be in short supply?

they are still listed on Electra’s site and my local Trek Store in Black only . Trek says “ coming.
I'm guessing they are waiting on a shipment from China . Everything from China has a hold on it right now .
I’m glad I got mine when I did. It gets more comments than any of my other bikes when I’m out riding it .

Thanks for the reply, Yes, I see them listed several places but they always indicate "not available" so it may well be the disruption of trade. I will keep looking..

I'm giving some consideration to a Sixthreezero "In the Barrel" which seems very similar to the Lux Fat 7D. Do you know anything about Sixthreezero? they offer free shipping, some assembly required and 365 days of return policy. It s about $70-$80 less expensive but seems available in about 20 days due to slow downs for the virus..
