Trailhead Cyclery Spring Demo day.

It's back again!  The Trail Head Cyclery Spring Demo day.  I try and make it out for this every time they have it because it is, 1) One of my favorite rides, and 2) Where else can you ride a dream bike on real trails all day long for only $40 bucks.  And remember, your entry fee is good for credit towards a purchase in their shop for a week after the demo.  Last year I got a bitchin' TLD Jersey for next to nothing with my discount.


This is a group ride, however with people trying out different bikes all the time it makes for lots of somewhat long breaks so if you're the impatient type this ride is not for you.  We'll be spending a lot of time here so if you're interested in trying out some new rides this will be a great opportunity.  Riders can expect to hit all the popular trails at least a couple times.  Total mileage on this type of ride is tough to gauge, but I'd say no less than 10 miles.


I'll post up some more details about what bikes they'll be bringing out as soon as they post it all up, but I would suggest bringing your bike as well.  That way if you don't want to demo something but still want to keep riding you can.  If you're not bringing a bike with you remember you still need your helmet and regular riding gear.  Also if you ride specific pedals bring them too.


Can't wait to see you all out there.

      Mike, it sure was a great day. I'm planning on doing a little writeup for the Facebook page and discussion forum. If youve got thoughts you'd like to share on the rides you tested let me know.

      The bike rep with Intense, stocky, grisly lookin, really goes the extra mile in suspension adjustment and education. He took the time to go on a road text w me and made the Carbine 27.5 climb with finesse through the rock gardens and laugh at them flying down. 27.5 really works well ! Up production and lower cost.

    well looks like we've got a pretty small group showing up. I know a few people are planning on showing up a little later, but if you get there and can't find the guy in the San Jose Mtb t-shirt just call me up on my cell (408)[masked] or shoot me a text.

    I won't be able to ride this weekend, but come say hello over at the MBOSC tent and hear about the new flow trail in Soquel Demo Forest, and your opportunity to help out and win an Ibis Ripley or HD

    I have a random favor to ask. Could I share a bike demo ticket with someone? You need to give Trailhead your credit card information but I only have a debit card so I'm technically not allowed to demo anything. I'll split the $40 fee with you and you can ride my size medium 2012 Trek Remedy 8 (I don't think Trailhead is a Trek dealer).
