    Is anyone aware of any upcoming demo days in the North West England area (or thereabouts)? Realise it’s probably the wrong time of year but have a big birthday in April and want to try out a few things with an eye on a pressie to myself.

    Not particularly looking for a certain brand at this stage, more just the chance to try a 29er, for example.

    North West Mountain Bike Centre usually have a spring demo day at Roman Lakes, Marple.

    That’s where I first rode a 29er, in fact I rode 3 (Orange, Santa Cruz, Specialized) back to back.

    Give them a call.

    Thanks Naranjada, hadn’t thought about them. Nothing on their site but will give them a ring.

    Wheelbase are having one in March I have booked to demo a 29er Yeti just to confirm they are a waste of money!!
    They are charging £10 to demo though 😯 not sure if thats per bike or the day. I managed to get a freebie as I,m their postie 🙂

    £10! 😯 It was always free and seemed to be a really good way of promoting the shop and for the bike companies to promote their brands. Still not a bad price, but being charged for someone to try and sell you something feels a bit off to me.
