    Test the Best

    Choosing a new bike is tough. That's why we're constantly on the move with our latest products, allowing you to, quite literally, Test the Best. It doesn't cost you a thing, and when we're near your town, you can demo everything from bikes to helmets and shoes.

    We know what it's like buying a new bike. After visiting stores, asking friends, combing the Internet, and reading every review in existence, you still might not be sure how your potential new bike will ride. That's why we encourage you to Test the Best. We keep demo fleets available year-round, so you can find out firsthand how our bikes ride and quiz our expertly trained staff with any questions you have about sizing, build options, or whatever else is on your mind.

    Check the dates and locations on our

    Facebook Events page to see when we're in your town next, how to reserve a bike, and what you'll need to bring.

    WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?

    Please arrive 30 minutes early for group ride events so we can get you set-up on your bike and be ready to ride by the start time. For demo events, you can check-out a bike anytime from when the event starts up to 30 minutes before it ends.

    WHAT IF IT'S RAINING?

    Depending on the type of demo, it may be cancelled. If the event is canceled, you'll be notified via the Specialized Facebook event.
