Dear Devinci Consumer,
It has been an unprecedented time in the bike industry; from the dark days of the beginning of the pandemic where all was in chaos to the ‘’Bike Boom’’ that we all experienced together over the last 10 months. This Extreme situation has also resulted in unparalleled challenges concerning our entire supply chain.
From historic delays for key bike components, Ocean container availability & cost and general increase in transport costs, being able to predict deliveries and keep on schedule has become very demanding. And given the fact that Devinci not only manufactures many of our models at our plant in Québec, but that we also assemble the vast majority of our bikes there as well, these difficulties have had a unique impact on our deliveries as well as a significant impact on our costs.
Yet despite all the efforts to absorb these significant new costs, it has become clear that we must raise prices. After careful and thoughtful review, we have implemented an increase on all models, and our Website now reflects these increases on our Retail prices.
This was not a decision that was taken lightly, but it was a necessary one to allow us to continue to make quality bikes and deliver those bikes to the market as soon as possible this season.
We appreciate your patience and understanding, and all the best to you in 2021.
The Cycles Devinci team
