We 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 rental and demo bikes in the most popular models from Santa Cruz, Trek, and Pivot (Bountiful only). 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 (Sugarhouse) or 801-683-0166 (Bountiful) to reserve a bike for a certain day. In addition to the models below, select mountain and road bike models are also available for demo (call for details). We can allow you to demo these models with some advanced notice.
Please contact us for more details. Our demo fees ($150/day) can be applied to the future purchase of a bike in our store (up to 4 demos within the same year). Here are our current bike rental & demo models:
Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon XT (27.5" wheels)
The 5010 is the most playful model, and Danny MacAskill’s "wee" bike of choice. The 130mm-travel 5010 sports short chainstays and a low BB for a uniquely fun character. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 65.7-degree head tube angle equate to precise, confident handling. This 2021 model features lower-link rear VPP suspension. The frame allows up to 27.5 x 2.8-inch tires if that’s your thing. Want more travel for aggressive descents? Check out the Nomad.
Sizes Available - Small, Medium, Large, & XL
Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon R (27.5" wheels)
With the Nomad, your only question should be: "Is this a full-face or a half-lid kinda ride?" It's Santa Cruz's biggest travel bike that you can still pedal uphill. How much travel? We're talking 170mm of suspension that can handle as steep and deep as you can take it on. The 64-degree head angle is super slack but the shorter chainstay length means handling is never compromised. Want a better climbing bike? Try the 5010.
Sizes Available - Medium & Large
*Nomad demos only available at Sugarhouse location
Pivot Firebird Carbon Race XT (29" wheels)*
The Firebird is tailored for aggressive, warp-speed riding with battleship stability. A relaxed head angle, long reach and generous wheelbase are the key ingredients of high-speed composure. It features 165mm rear suspension with a stout 170mm Fox 38 fork. A new flip chip with two settings means there isn’t any compromise in geometry. This beast also features 29" wheels and a Shimano XT 1x12 drivetrain.
Sizes available - Medium & Large (can fit riders up to 6'4")
*Firebird demos only available at Bountiful location
