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. $100 lets you take one of our mountain bikes out for a 24hr period. If you like the bike, we will apply that $100 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 a few options from Trek, Specialized and a Yeti 4.5 for you to try. The demo stock is subject to change, so please call ahead to verify what we have available.

STEP 2: A $100 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 $100 fee.

STEP 3: Once you find the right bike, you have the option to apply that $100 rental fee towards the purchase of a new mountain bike.
