Demo Day Done

Whew. Demo Day. The specter of rain, a shortage of staff, and the ignorance of your truly in organizing one of these deals all made it a bit more nerve-wracking than anticipated. But dang, what a great day!

We sent over forty people out on nearly sixty test rides in five hours. Everybody wanted to ride the Stumpjumper FSR Expert, in medium. With only one such bike, lots of folks got sent out, and came back beaming, on the "next-best-thing" Jamis Dakar XCR Pro. Everybody came back with a smile. I wish I had more pics, but I spent 99% of the time running around looking for our scarce pedal wrenches. And a big thanks to DCMTB for sending a legion of volunteers to help out... Shown here in a brief moment of repose:
Not sure when/where we'll do our next day out on the trails, but we definitely will. Check the newsletter, or our events page.
