All very confused now... I assume you've now activated all the events but strictly speaking you're not ready to accept Afan bookings?

Hi, i was just wondering whether the suspension on the demo bikes will be set up for each individual person's weight or if you would have to do this yourself.
cheers

Is there any chance that Scott will have bikes available at the Afan Demo day or is the list of bikes a final list? I thought I saw that the list of bikes at the earlier events has increased over the last few weeks.

I was one of the first people to book for the Aston demo and it allowed me to book Trek and Gary fisher bikes. Will I be guaranteed to get them, even though it says you are supposedly not allowed to pre book them (though I have!) :shock:

Different Bike

Postby maunderd » Wed Jan 21, 2009 14:24 pm

Hi,

I'm a xc racer and looking for a YETI ARC for the up and coming summer season, i've booked in for the demo day although there isnt that model under yeti there. I'm looking at purchasing 3 of them for my team. Would it be possible to bring one down to test out?

Cheers
Dan

frames

Postby MintyBadger » Thu Jan 22, 2009 22:28 pm

Hi, where you have frames available to book will these be built up into bikes or just frames to look at??

I am looking to buy a Cotic frame later this year and have booked a couple of slots with them at Aston

Thanks

No, they'll be built up.

Some major updates have been done recently to make the website run smoother.

Later this week you should see some visual changes either today or tomorrow to help with usability :)

Any feedback regarding how you use the website and how you would prefer to use it would most be appreciated.

A lot of work has gone into the recent changes so I hope you enjoy them!

21 or 22 Feb 2009 for Cannock Chase?

Postby mattp2008 » Sun Feb 01, 2009 16:00 pm

Website says 22 Feb but advert in March 2009 issue of Cycling Plus says 21 Feb. I'm up for testing a Trek Madone 5.2 (so realise I can only book on the day) ...but which day?
Thanks,
Matt

We're looking into the dates for Cannock Chase at the moment but I am fairly certain it is the Sunday, 22nd that is correct. I will confirm this for you when I get a response.

There's a road demo day on the 21st and a mountain bike demo day on the 22nd.

The website will be updated soon to take the road demo bookings.

Specialized and Giant are running a demo day at Carron Valley on 5th April ( ttp://www.test-the-best.co.uk/ ), any chance of moving the Glentress date or speaking to someone at Giant and Specialized as it is likely that a lot of Scottish riders would like to go to both.

Pathetic Demo Day website

Postby globalfish » Wed Feb 04, 2009 20:38 pm

Been mucking about for 30 mins trying to book bikes and it's so slow I've just given up and cancelled my calendar completely. Letter only turned up a couple of days ago - too late to spend hours booking bikes.
Site takes forever to load, pages expire if you want to go back, bike sizes/bikes aren't available. site navigation poor. A total farce.
This combined with my MBUK not turning up, I'll be going somewhere else for demo's and a decent bike mag. Not impressed.

Demo days on Saturdays

Postby Ystradisaf » Thu Feb 05, 2009 10:17 am

Hi
Is it possible to do any demo days on Saturdays please? I noticed the demo day at Afan Argoed was down as Sat 7th March, but on checking the website, it is obviously the wrong day, as the site says Sun 8th. I am a Christian, and wouldn't go on a demo day on a Sunday, will there ever be any Saturdays please?
thanks

Weather

Postby MintyBadger » Fri Feb 06, 2009 14:49 pm

Given the current weather conditions is there going to be an anouncement on this forum confirming the day is still on?

If it's icy I can see you having fun getting all the bikes up the hill!

Postby hoylie » Fri Feb 06, 2009 16:29 pm

Is there not going to be any write ups on the Bike Radar web site after each event?

Thanks
