A DAY ON THE FIRELINE

By Aidan Grundy-Reiner, SB Staffer & Volunteer Firefighter

Californians are unfortunately accustomed to "fire season", and although 2021's wildfires started earlier than usual, the Dixie Fire, River Fire and other incidents up north haven't gotten the media attention they might've in the past. These fires are all too real, and the impact they're having on our neighbors and family is immeasurable. Aidan (and Sports Basement!) wants to give them a bit more attention, and help our partner organizations on the front lines. Take a walk in Aidan's boots for A Day on the Fireline.

WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE BIKE INDUSTRY?

By Philip Holenstein, Director of Buying

If you've been searching for a new bike recently, you're probably aware that bikes of all shapes, sizes, colors and styles are weirdly sparse - not just at Sports Basement but everywhere, including vendor-owned shops and sites. So what's going on here? Rather than hide behind back-in-stock notifications or vague promises of future delivery dates, we thought it'd be best to come right out and tell you, our beloved customers, everything we know about why bikes are so hard to find and the myriad issues that are causing these problems.
