Demoing a Bicycle
One of the most difficult things to do as a bike shop is to allow customers to take a brand new bike for a test ride on rough terrain. With a road bike or commuter, you can usually get a great feel for your bike by taking it around the parking lot or through the paved streets surrounding our stores. A mountain bike test ride however, is a much more involved process.
Bicycle Demo Program
Carytown Bicycle Co. is bringing a simple MTB demo program to you. $250 lets you take one of our mountain bikes out for a 24hr period. If you like the bike, we will apply that $250 rental fee towards the purchase of the bike. Simple.
How It Works:
STEP 1: Come into CBC and our staff can discuss your ride style and bike needs. We currently have several options from Trek, Specialized and Yeti for you to try. The demo stock is subject to change, so please call ahead to verify what we have available.
STEP 2: A $250 deposit allows you to test ride our bike for a 24 hour period. The reservation period is from noon until noon the following day. If the bike is returned later, you will be subject to an additional day $250 fee.
STEP 3: Once you find the right bike, you have the option to apply that $250 rental fee towards the purchase of a new mountain bike.
