Rocky Mountain Demo Evening – Thursday 26th June

Thursday 26th June

The guys from Rocky Mountain have on offer the following extensive list of demo bikes:

Please call or visit the shop where the master list is being kept of who has booked which bike.  Note, if the bike you want to try is booked by somebody else, then please book something else, and we’ll ask everyone to be open about swapping and trying other bikes along the ride

There will be 2 guys representing Rocky Mountain there also, so that if you have any questions regarding the bikes, they will be there to help and guide you with any questions you have.

Please see Rocky Mountain web site for more information on these bikes:

Also, for any of you techy guys and gals, here’s an explanation of the Ride9 adjustable geometry found on the Altitude and Instinct.  This is the main feature which makes the Rocky’s stand out from the crowd.

Please arrive for 5pm (to sort out saddle heights, shock pressures, pedals etc) for a 5.30 start. The plan is to go for a 1-1.5 hour ride around the forest trails.

Note, Rocky’s quite often come up on the small side, so if you normally ride a Medium for example, you could well be a large in a Rocky Mountain.  Please check the geometry info on the web site if in doubt.
