Demo Bike Program

Santa CruzWe want to make your bike-buying experience easier by allowing you to take a bike out on the dirt and put it to the test.  We offer demo bikes in the most popular Santa Cruz models, as well as some amazing Trek bikes. They are available anytime for you to ride on your favorite trail - just come by our shop or give us a call at 801-484-0404 to reserve a bike for a certain day. In addition to the models below, we also have access to other mountain and road bike models.  We can allow you to demo these models with some advanced notice.

Please contact us for more details. Our demo fee can be applied to the future purchase of a bike in our store.  Here are our current demo models:

Demo Bike
TREK POWERFLY 8 FULL SUSPENSION E-BIKE 

"Ride longer, faster" isn't just a sales gimmick. This electric assist bike really does make you want to ride and never stop. You'll be smiling the whole way too!  Going on long rides and adventures you only dreamed of will become your daily norm. Steep hills...no problem!  Come check it out and then take it for a long adventure.  We dare you to try it and hate it!

Aluminum Frame, Bosch 500 Battery (250Watt), 27.5x2.8" tires, 130mm suspension, and Shimano XT components

Sizes available - 17.5" & 19.5"

 
Demo Bike - Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon (X0-1 29)

Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon (X0-1 29)

If hardtails are the sheep of cross country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy is a wolf on their heels. With new frame tweaks that increase its trail chops, you'll be stoked to discover where the new Tallboy can take you. On steep and rocky descents, the relaxed 68-degree head angle and 120mm fork urge you to charge harder, and a shortened rear end and more progressive shock tune provide snappy acceleration and a playful feel over smooth, rolling singletrack. For increased control through high-speed turns, the lowered bottom bracket height drops the center of gravity and gives the Tallboy a planted feel.

Available to demo with either 27.5+ or 29 wheels.  Demo both wheel sizes and you can see what's best for you.

Sizes available - Med, Lg, XL.  (see Juliana models for smaller size)

Demo Bike - Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon (X0-1 27.5+)

Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon (X0-1 27.5+t)

Hightower has the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon.  Running either proven 29" wheels or the new monster-truck 27.5”+ (2.8" wide) for better traction on loose trails, Hightower seamlessly adapts to the trails and style you ride, no matter where you go.  Thanks to a neat little “High/Low” setting on the upper link that adjusts the bottom bracket height and maintains a 67° head angle, you have the versatility of two wheel sizes to choose from.

So the big question, 27.5+ or 29?  Demo both and you'll know the answer!

Sizes available - Med, Lg, XL.  (see Juliana models for smaller size)

Demo Bike - Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon (X0-1 AM Kit)

Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon (X0-1 AM Kit)

The Bronson is one of our most versatile models with 27.5" wheels, 150mm of VPP™ travel, and a slack 66° head tube angle. The Bronson is the perfect one-bike-does-it-all model.   The new lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes.  Wider rear wheel spacing allows for shorter chainstays and a more maneuverable ride.  Our demo model includes SRAM X01 1x11 and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post. 

Sizes available - Med, Lg, XL.   (see Juliana models for smaller size)

Demo Bike - Juliana Furtado Carbon 27.5 (X0-1 AM Kit)

Juliana Furtado Carbon 27.5 (XO1 AM kit)

The Furtado (like it's Santa Cruz counterpart the "5010") is designed to be fast and playful, yet still climb well on steep, rocky ascents.  It comes with 27.5" wheels and 130mm (5") VPP suspension.  The new Furtado has a more aggressive head tube angle (67-degree), and the longer top tube welcomes the use of shorter stems for more precise handling and greater confidence on rapid descents.  The new lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes.  Wider rear wheel spacing allows for shorter chainstays and a more maneuverable ride.  A SRAM X01 1x11 drivetrain simplifies your shifting but gives a large range of gears for any trail out there. 

Sizes available - Small (see 5010 for larger sizes)

 JULIANA JOPLIN CARBON X01 27.5+

Born unto the world as a race-bred endurance machine, the Juliana Joplin has evolved into something more, finding its stride in a genre-defying category that includes all the best traits of XC and trail riding. The result is a bike that's composed on tricky descents, supple through bumpy flats, and strikingly fast when it's time to crank things up. Featuring the crisp-shifting SRAM Eagle X01 1x12 drivetrain paired with powerful Level TLM brakes and a stout Fox 34 Performance Elite 130 fork for predictable handling, the Joplin CC X01 is made for women who are ready to take mountain biking to the next level.

Available to demo with either 27.5+ or 29 wheels.  Demo both wheel sizes and you can see what's best for you.

Sizes available - Small (see Tallboy for larger sizes)

 
Demo Bike - Trek Farley 9.8 Carbon Fat Bike

Trek Farley 9.8 Carbon Fat Bike

This is one of the lightest fat bikes on the market, weighing less than 25 lbs.  It comes with a carbon fiber frame, carbon wheels, carbon handlebar...yes, carbon, carbon, carbon...everywhere.  It comes with 27.5" x 4" wide tires that can easily set up tubeless.  A SRAM X01 1x11 drivetrain with a 30-tooth chainring gives a low range of gears for snow, sand, or any place you want to go...no matter the time of year. 

Sizes available - 19.5" (Lg)
