Our Demo Bikes

For 2017, Chasing Epic is excited to announce a partnership with both Ibis and BMC 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, HD3, SpeedFox, and TrailFox- 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 1×11 drivetrains.  We have two 29’er models, and two 27.5″ models covering medium-travel and long-travel suspension that will deliver the best performance for you in places like Moab, Crested Butte, and St. George.

 

Take a look below at the intimate details of our 2017 demo bikes, but try not to drool on your keyboard.

2017 BMC SpeedFox: Mid-Travel 29er

 

Depending on your tire-size preference, a mid-travel 29er could be considered as the ultimate trail bike; the SpeedFox is no joke.  With an efficient pedaling platform of 130mm of rear suspension, and a nice plush 130mm of front cushion with the Fox 34, you’re going to love this bike regardless of where you’re riding.  It can handle everything you throw at it, and more!

 

Travel Spec: 130 front, 130 rear

Fork: Fox 34 Factory 130mm, Kashima finish

Shock: Fox Float DPS, Kashima

Dropper Post: Rockshox Reverb

Drivetrain: Shimano XTR/XT 1×11 w/ RaceFace Next Crankset

Brakes: Shimano XT

Wheels: DT Swiss XM1501 or Stan’s Flow Mk3

2017 BMC TrailFox: Long Travel 29’er

 

Long travel 29’ers are the ultimate “enduro” weapons, and the BMC TrailFox was built with that in mind.  With 160mm of front travel combined with 150mm of rear suspension, you won’t have any excuses for not being the first one down the hill.  That said, the ABP platform that BMC utilizes also provides plenty of uphill capabilities, so you won’t be hurting on the climbs either.

2017 Ibis Mojo 3: Mid-Travel 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.

 

Travel Spec: 140mm Front, 130mm Rear

Fork: Fox 34 Performance 140mm

Shock: Fox Evol DPS 130mm

Dropper: Fox Transfer

Drivetrain: Shimano XT 1×11, 10-42t Cassette

Wheels: Ibis 738 Wide (35mm)

2017 Ibis HD3: Long-Travel 27.5″

 

Make no mistakes, the HD3 was built to rip the descents and tear through the burliest of terrain.  The Fox 36 up front helps with that, and the bike’s geometry keeps it nimble in the tightest of spots.  Even with the focus on descending, we’ve taken this beast on 30-mile epics with no qualms, and we’ve never felt lacking on the climbs.  It’s a beast!
