Freeze Thaw Cycles Demos...and Closeouts!

Decisions, decisions… It can be really tricky to pick out the perfect new bike. Many online and magazine reviews sound the same after awhile; they are also meaningless unless you know the reviewer is a similar size to you, has a similar riding style, and is reviewing on similar trails (see Dirt Rag and Bicycle Times for PA-based reviews with lots of reviewer stats). There are quite a few different bikes that all have their merits, especially just on paper. How can you be sure you’re making the right choice?

The Freeze Thaw Demo Program is designed to help you choose the perfect bike for you and your riding style. It's also designed to give our staff the chance to actually be familiar with what we are selling - so we can have a real conversation with you about the product. We keep an impressive selection of bikes on hand for real demo rides - including full suspension, hardtail, folders and FAT's. And we don’t mean 15 minutes of pedaling around town & campus. We want you to get out into your element to see and feel how these bikes really perform. As always, we'll do a substantial amount of fit work and suspension and/or tire pressure setup before you ride so you get an accurate portrayal of how the bike would be if you owned it.

Here’s how it works: Aluminum + Steel Demo bikes are $75/day ($150 for carbon and titanium models) and all Demo fees are applied towards any future bike purchase at FTC within 30 days. This allows you to try multiple bike setups if needed and make comparisons before you decide on your new ride.

Our demo bikes are not available as traditional rentals.

On a rotating basis we offer Demo bikes for sale at Closeout prices. These bikes are covered by a full warranty as you will be the original owner. All Demo bikes have a service record in our system to keep track of their use and service history and are fully tuned prior to sale. The chart below also shows which bikes are on sale at any given time and if they are available to demo. Please call or email Justin with any questions about any of the bikes listed.
