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 Zerode. 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, 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 rental fees ($75/day) and demo fees ($150) can be applied to the future purchase of a bike in our store. Here are our current bike rental & demo models:
Zerode Taniwha Carbon (Pinion drivetrain & 27.5" wheels)
The Taniwha carbon frame is custom built around the incredible Pinion C.Line gearbox that makes for a quiet, efficient, low maintenance machine. No chain slap, no skipping gears, and no broken derailleurs! By removing a considerable amount of unsprung weight from the rear of the bike, the suspension is free to work like no other bike you've ever ridden - allowing for a much more confidence-inspiring ride and nearly maintenance-free drivetrain. Demo one and see if you should ditch your derailleurs.
The Taniwha has 160mm suspension travel and 27.5" wheels.
Sizes Available - Large, XL
Santa Cruz Hightower LT Carbon X01 (29er)
The Hightower LT is designed for maximum speed in the biggest mountains. It’s bred to meet the demands of racing at the EWS, Crankworx, and Andes Pacifico.
Now with 150mm suspension travel, the LT is the longer -travel brother to the Hightower. It keeps standard 29" tires for maximum speed and roll-over capability.
Sizes Available - Med, Large, XL
Santa Cruz Nomad 4 Carbon XE (27.5" wheels)
The redesigned Santa Cruz Nomad was created to satisfy the hard-charging rider who lives for gravity-fueled runs. With 170mm of VPP suspension, a slack 65-degree head angle, and 27.5-inch wheels, the Nomad offers a plush ride coupled with muscled agility for sight-blurring blazes down big, technical descents.
Sizes available - Med, XL
Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon XO1 (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 66.2/66.5-degree head tube angle (adjusted via flip chip) equate to precise, confident handling. The upper-link driven shock VPP suspension is configured to be sharp and responsive. The frame allows up to 27.5 x 2.8-inch tires if that’s your thing.
Sizes Avail - Medium (See Juliana Furtado for size small)
Santa Cruz Blur Carbon XO1 (29er)
The Blur is Santa Cruz's lightest ever 100mm full suspension 29er and the ultimate XC race bike. The ultra-efficient VPP suspension design, complemented by a dual remote lockout and super stiff carbon frame, means you’ve got rocket-like acceleration on demand. A one-piece carbon frame delivers lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre. If you love to climb and rip the smooth flat trails, you'll love this bike...guaranteed.
Sizes Avail - Medium, Large
Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon XO1 (27.5" wheels)
With 150mm of VPP travel on 27.5-inch wheels, the Bronson rides the sharp edge between agility and stability. The new lower-link mounted shock configuration opens up greater possibilities for maximum bump performance, a supportive mid-stroke, and a barely detectable bottom out. Ideal for negotiating tech-gnar one moment and fast flowing terrain the next, the 160mm fork travel and 65-degree head angle ensure handling remains refined.
Sizes Available - Medium, Large, XL
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 - 18.5" (Med/Lg)
Juliana Furtado Carbon X01 (27.5 wheels)
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 offers confidence on rapid descents, improved clearance to minimize rock strikes, and a more maneuverable ride. A SRAM X01 1x12 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+ or 29")
The Juliana Joplin is made for women who want a stable, predictable ride. The larger tire size(s) allow the bike to roll faster and carry over bumps easier. It's also composed on tricky descents, supple through bumpy flats, and strikingly fast when it's time to crank things up. This demo features SRAM Eagle X01 1x12 drivetrain paired with a stout Fox 34 Performance Elite 130mm fork.
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
