Next FTF or Demo Day?
« on: April 27, 2010, 07:31:42 AM »
My wife is looking for a new 16" full suspension bike, but we can't find any locally to test. Does anyone know when the next FTF or Demo Day is?

Is best if you call the local bike shops and ask them if they or their vendors will have a demo day.  SWAMP's FTF is not until November.  Sometimes you will see Demos at races but that may not pick up until Fall.  I don't now about other local bike shops but AJ's has rental bike you can take out.  They will let you ride any bike (and as many as you want) on their parking lot.  But if you want to take it out for a day or two to the trails, they have several rentals.  Give AJ's a call they are in Brandon.

http://justridebicycles.com/   Located at Bell Shoals and Fishhawk had a 17" womans model bike you might want to try.
Ask for David.

UBC has a deal too, put down a deposit which can be used toward the purchase if she likes the bike :)

I believe Oliver's on Bruce B Downs now has a demo or  two as well. It's worth a look.

Thanks for everyone's help. My wife got a great deal on a 16" Gary Fisher hi-fi plus 29er in black from Just Ride. Nice bike and David was very helpful.
