The Blue Sky Demo Program provides you with the opportunity to experience different bicycles and wheel sets . By trying bikes with different geometries, component packages and suspension systems under actual riding conditions you become better informed about the attributes of specific brands and products. When you ride 60 miles on a bike, or hit up your favorite trail system a few times, terms like “responsiveness”, “eats up the road” and “the rear is very active”, actually start to mean something.
- The Demo Bike Fee is $150 for 3 days. The fee may be applied to a new bike purchase of $1500 or more, within 30 days of the demo date.
- Demo bikes must be treated with respect and not abused.

Saddle Test Ride Program
The saddle test ride program is designed to eliminate the guess work and expense of finding the right saddle.
We’ll do a brief lower back/sit bone analysis in order to recommend saddles that have been designed to work with your bone structure. We’ll set the saddle on your bike and you have 7 days to use the saddle to see if it’s right for you. You may demo as many saddles as necessary to arrive at the one that fits you best.
The saddle test ride program cost $40. A $10 credit will be applied to any saddle purchase you make through the Test Ride Program.
