There are several ways to demo Ibis bikes.
During the demo season (Spring, Summer, Fall) we operate our demo fleet out of two big 'ol Mercedes Sprinter vans, one stays West of the Mississippi, the other mainly stays East.
The East demo tour is currently in hibernation and will awaken in the Spring of 2015. Dates to be decided still.
This winter, Kirk out West will be captaining a limited schedule, primarily in Southern California and Arizona.
Bikes on board include a nice selection of Ripleys and the brand spankin new Mojo HD3. Currently the HD3s are limited to Medium and Large, we'll add the Small and Extra Large in February.
As always, stay tuned to this page for updates.
We now have a 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. YES, WE HAVE THE HD3.
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 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
