Test a Trek at Your Local Trailhead on Sunday, June 23

Jun 20, 2019
by Trek Bikes  

The best way to decide what bike is right for you is to spend time riding a few different models. So Trek is hitting the trails with a fleet of their high-end mountain bikes, and you can try them at your local trails for free. They'll be at a local trailhead on June 23, so make sure to stop by and try the latest and greatest that Trek has to offer.

All you need is your helmet, ID, credit card, and pedals if you prefer something other than standard flats. The demo is free, and Trek's demo experts from your local Trek retailer will be standing by to get you on the right size, set your suspension and answer any questions.

 Yeahhhh Maxwell in Fort Collins will be an absolute shitshow that day.

A for effort Trek, but you should have decided to set up shop at Lory State Park. I understand why you picked Maxwell - only 4 possible entry/exit points so easy to keep an eye on your bikes, but the 200-300 hikers that will be on the trail this Sunday (as long as the trail doesn't close for the forecasted rain all weekend) will be in for a surprise when they see a bike demo happening.

 Agreed, plus Lory and Horsetooth offer much more in the way of a trails and varying terrain to make a bike demo comprehensive. I wonder if it's a landowner issue (Maxwell is City while Horsetooth and Lory are county and state). Let's be honest though, Maxwell is a shit show every day. It's an out and back, close to town, short, with great views at the top.

 @provin1327: 100% agree. I did consider the landowner issue. Curious why they picked Fort Collins at all out of the whole Front Range, to be honest. Walker Ranch near Boulder would be another great option.

Sometimes you can randomly get really good Maxwell laps in, especially right before sunset or if the weather looks suspect. But yes, 10 AM - 1 PM on a weekend sounds like a mess!

 There a number of reasons we are having the demo at Maxwell. Permitting restrictions, proximity to store, length of trail. We applied for these permits months ago with the intention to spread them over several trailheads but permits are being restricted to only two “demo permits” per company and only our first two applications were approved. Horsetooth is certainly the best place for an extended demo but it’s tough to ride many trails there in under an hour which limits the availability of bikes to other riders. Trek no longer has a Factory Demo program so this demo is facilitated by the 3 Trek locations around Fort Collins. The good news is these bikes are always available for demo at the store. Drop by, grab a bike for 24 hours and take it to your favorite trail! If you have any questions send me a PM.

 @dgwest: I apologize for my choice of wording. I should have said "I think this event could be better at Lory State Park, since Maxwell is so crowded as it is already". I could see it being really difficult to get a good feel for a new bike when you're stopping every 10 yards.

Those are all great reasons. Yes, Maxwell is super fast and very accessible. A capable rider can easily bang out 2 laps on Maxwell or a full Maxwell + Shoreline lap in under an hour. Nevertheless, I don't want to be anywhere near Maxwell on Sunday. Best wishes, hoping the trail will stay open for yall.

 Maxwell is so congested on a Sunday. Add a demo day with this level of advertising, has nightmare traffic S@!t show written all over it. Bummer.

 Awesome trail work being done in east Tennessee, and Winged Deer Park is a hidden gem. #rollthebones

 I really wish brands would do more demos in Canada instead of just Vancouver and calling it a day.
