I rented an RMX when I was there last year. The bike was in descent shape but had some issues with the brakes that was a maint item that caused me to loose a good hour on the mountain. The Norcos seemed to be in somewhat better state of repair and in hindsight I might have done well to grab one of those. Didn't look to closely at anything else.
When you headed up?
ebxtreme- What what what!?!? Knolly demo? Do they allow commoners to ride it at all do you know? I've been planning on hitting up Noel, I'd love to check out a V-tach and get a ride in...
Yup, it's true. Fanatyk Co has a medium blue V-tach that's available for rental. I think the bike is set up with a Fox DHX 5.0, a Boxxer up front and a dual ring guide. I would contact them in advance because I'm pretty sure the bike has been rented out most days (including week days). Also, like most demo programs, they deduct the rental fee off the purchase price if the renter decides to buy a frame.
We're going to be getting other shops set up with demos as well, including both our West Vancouver (Different Bikes) and North Vancouver (On Top Bike Shop) dealers as well some in the US. More demo locations to follow over the next few months...
Ps: just because you can rent the bike doesn't mean that you shouldn't give me a ring when you get into town - see you in a week or so!
