The best way to know if a bike is right for you is to give it an extended test ride outside of the shop's parking lot. That is where the demo program comes into play. You can ride any of the bikes in the demo fleet for an extended period of time out in real world conditions.
Trail and road conditions will determine if demos are possible.
If you decide after your demo ride that it is the bike for you, Bike Station Santa Cruz will put the demo fee toward the price of your new bike.*
*within 30 days from the return date of the demo period. Valid only on new bikes $1500 and above.
You can reserve a specific bike 48 hrs. ahead of your demo period. We require that you pay the first day’s rental fee to secure your reservation. The one day reservation charge is non-refundable if you do not have the courtesy to reschedule if you cannot make it. Contact the shop for more information.
