WHY DEMO A BIKE

Shopping for your first bike is intimidating. All the stats and different options run together and turn to white noise. Because of this information overload we prefer to set people up on demo rides. Real demo rides, not some five minute in the parking lot, is your saddle high enough, ride this expensive mountain bike down one curb demo ride. That kind of demo will not arm you with the information to make a real choice about what bike to get.

We take you to real mountain bike trails to ride. What better way to see if you like a bike than a two hour ride around the very trails that you intend to ride? We offer demo rides for Stumpjumpers, Epics, Epic Evos and Diverges. We also have some other demo bikes rotating, so if you want a specific trim or model ask!

List of all demo bike below.

WHEN YOU’RE READY

Once you’ve decided on what model and size suits you the best, we can then discuss price, colors, and accessories.  Here’s the price breakdown:

  • Full MSRP on the Bike Model

  • 15%* off any accessories or components for the first month

  • Lifetime warranty on Specialized bicycles

  • Free small adjustments on brakes, derailleurs, and wheels as well as installation of parts purchased through Earl’s Bike Shop throughout the lifetime of the bike

*On most items; dependent on our pricing


HOW IT WORKS

THE SET UP:

  • Ask yourself “Am I stoked on bikes?”  If the answer is yes, proceed to the next step.

  • Send us a text or email on what type of bike you’re looking for

  • We’ll respond and set you up for a time to come in

  • We’ll size you on the bike model you’re looking (Change/Move Saddle and Stem as necessary)

  • If it’s a mountain bike, we’ll run a static suspension tune to your specifications.  

  • If you’re between specific models or sizes, we’ll make sure to set you up on more than one

  • We’ll even install your preferred type of pedal.  If you don’t have a helmet or have dialed in your pedal preference, we’ll offer those as well.

SCHEDULING:

  • We’ll set you up with a time to go for a demo ride.  

  • Either we’ll meet at the shop and caravan you out to a trail or meet you at a designated trail

  • Sign waiver

  • We’ll ride some bikes!  If you want to check out two models, we’ll swap between them during the demo

  • Afterwards, we’ll exchange high fives and if you’re pumped but hungry, we’ll go grab food and/or a beer

  • There is no charge for the demo ride so please, only serious inquiries

If you’d prefer taking a bike out on your own:

  • We’ll still set you up with one bike

  • We’ll take a deposit for half the cost of the bike

  • Sign waiver

  • Enjoy the bike for a day or two!

  • Deposit will be fully refunded once the bike is returned in good working order
