Our Demo Bikes

For 2018, Chasing Epic is excited to announce a partnership with both Ibis and Spot for our incredible demo bike fleet; as always, every customer has access to one of these bikes as part of our all-inclusive adventure package.  It’s always a goal of ours to make sure we have the best bikes available for our clients to ride on the best trails (in the best locations) in the United States, and we’re psyched to offer what’s likely the best demo bike fleet in the industry.

 

Between the four models we’ll be carrying- Mojo 3, Ripley LS, Rollik, and Mayhem- you’ll be covered regardless of where you’re riding, or what your riding style is.  All of our bikes are spec’ed with ultra high-quality builds on carbon frames, with dropper posts and 1x drivetrains.  We have two 29’er models, and two 27.5″ models offering all you need for both trail and all-mountain riding, with high-end suspension that will deliver the best performance for you in places like Moab, Crested Butte, and St. George. Please note: we do have limited sizes available in each model, so we can’t guarantee you’ll get the exact bike you want… but we’ll try our damndest to make sure you do.

 

Take a look below at the intimate details of our 2018 demo bikes, but try not to drool on your keyboard.

2018 Ibis Mojo 3: All-Around Beast (27.5″)

 

The Mojo 3 has been rated by multiple bike magazines as one of the best trail bikes ever made, and we agree.  With an efficient pedaling platform and just enough front suspension to handle anything thrown its way, the Mojo 3 is a perfect weapon of choice for all our destinations.  Sizes carried: S, M, L, XL

 

Travel Spec: 140mm Front, 130mm Rear

Fork: Fox 34 Performance 140mm

Shock: Fox Evol DPS 130mm

Dropper: PNW Components Rainier

Drivetrain: Shimano XT 1×11, 30t with 11-46t Cassette

Wheels: Ibis 738 Wide (34mm internal)

2018 Ibis Ripley LS: Trail Weapon (29’er)

 

Despite “only” having 130mm of front travel, the Ripley LS can handle absolutely everything you throw at it: from steeps in Moab to all-day epics in Crested Butte.  It’s a quick-handling 29er that rolls over everything in sight, and is as versatile as it is beautiful.  Bring it on.  Sizes carried: M, L, XL.

 

Travel Spec: 130mm front, 120mm rear

Fork: Fox 34 Factory 130

Shock: Fox EVOL 3-pos CTD

Drivetrain: SRAM GX Eagle 1×12

Brakes: Shimano Deore M615

Wheels: Ibis Wide Alloy (34mm internal)

2018 Spot Rollik: All-Mountain Machine (27.5″)

 

The Spot Rollik is the “big bike” in our lineup, with 6″ of travel in the front and rear.  But don’t let that fool you- the steep seat tube angle and updated geometry of the Rollik means it climbs well.  Point it downhill and the bike really shines- with longer travel and a playful feel, this bike will be great regardless of where you ride.  Sizes carried: M, L, XL

 

Travel Spec: 160mm front, 150mm rear

Fork: Fox 36 Factory 160mm

Shock: Fox DPX2

Dropper: BikeYoke Revive

Drivetrain: SRAM XO1 Eagle 1 x 12

Wheels: Stan’s Flow (29mm internal)

2018 Spot Mayhem: Doing It All (29er)

 

The Mayhem is the ultimate trail bike from Spot- with 130mm of travel, it’s super efficient on the climbs and can rip on the descents.  Spot’s Living Link suspension firms up the platform for big climbs, but the rear end softens up when you’re banging through rowdy descents.  Add in 5″ of front fork travel, and you’ve got the perfect bike for all of our destinations.  Sizes carried: M, L, XL

 

Travel Spec: 130mm front, 130mm rear

Fork: Fox 34 Factory 130mm

Shock: Fox DPS Evol 3-pos

Dropper: BikeYoke Revive
