Planet Road Bike Demos

Planet Cycles has an extensive range of road bike demo bikes which can be ridden most days of the week.
We have great access to some quiet streets around our store and customers are welcome to come in and take one of our bikes for a test ride and compare different brands, models and styles from flat bar to endurance, classic road or even TT/triathlon and S-Works custom builds.  The sky is the limit! 

 

Would you buy a new car with out driving it ?

Would you buy a new stereo without listening to it ?

Then come on it to Planet Cycles and try before you buy. Test ride a bike today and be sure what you want is what you get.

Models from both Cannondale and Specialized are available in store. Some of the bikes we have ready for test are pictured below.
