The bike industry is still far from operating at its normal capacity, and some companies are without functioning factories due to COVID-19 closures. We’ve heard of brands delivering bikes without saddles, and others with lead times of two years. Bombtrack is still plugging along, and although they’ve pushed back all development of new bikes to 2023, they’ve managed to introduce six updated build specs for 2022. This is the first time Bombtrack has carried over all of their models into the next year, but we’ve heard about some exciting new models in the works.
Bombtrack is introducing six new builds/colorways for 2022, which will all be available globally this month. Find a breakdown of what’s new below, including photos, pricing, and a product overview video for each from Bombtrack.
