Our Demo Bikes

For 2019, Chasing Epic is excited to announce that we’ll be carrying exclusively Ibis bikes; 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.  Additionally for this year, we’ll be working with Industry Nine to spec all of our bikes with their custom Enduro 305 wheelsets.

 

Between the three models we’ll be carrying- Mojo 3, Ripley LS, and the Ripmo– 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 1×12 drivetrains.  Based on client feedback last year we’re carrying two 29er options and one 27.5″ option, 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 Sun Valley. 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.  Additionally, due to travel distances in places like Brevard and Sun Valley we may need to substitute a different make/model, but we’ll make sure that bike is equal in quality and specs!
