There are several ways to demo Ibis bikes.
We operate two big 'ol Mercedes Sprinter vans, one stays West of the Mississippi, the other mainly stays East.
Captaining the West coast demo tour for the umpteenth year in a row is the ever helpful Kirk.
For the East coast, we've hired Arkansas native Mike Marrow, so the long suffering East Coast will now get a special full court press, Ibis style.
Bikes on board for this year are a nice selection of Ripleys and Mojo HDRs set up with 650b wheels
In addition each van has a nice 55cm Hakkalugi.
As always, stay tuned to this page for updates. New dates are being added all the time, and we'll run until November this year.
New for 2014 is our factory demo program. If you find yourself in Santa Cruz, we have a fleet of bikes available to take out for a day or a weekend.
When you get a bike from our facility, we will ask you for a very small $20 donation to the Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz, the people who maintain a lot of the trails that you will be riding on your demo. 100% goes to MBoSC. If you want a bike for the whole weekend, the rate is $60 and again, all the proceeds go to keeping our trails in good shape. We don't take a penny. To request a demo, you can call us toll free at 1 (866) 424-7635 or email us here:
Don't forget shoes, pedals, helmet, gloves, credit card and driver's license. We do have an assortment of pedals including flats in case you forget something.
Remember, many of our retailers have demos available to ride any day. You can always look at our dealer listing and see if there’s a dealer with a demo near you. Even if there's not one listed, it wouldn't hurt to give a call and see if they do have any demo bikes.
The map above shows where we're headed and when and remember, it's always changing.
