Clinics And Demos

Electric Bike Demo

Friday, July 14th and Saturday, July 15th from 1-5pm right here at West Hill Shop.

What does it feel like to ride an electric bike? Like you're twenty years old again! With these E-bikes, climbing hills and keeping up are no problem. Communting is quicker with less fuss and getting around in the woods is easier. Yes, you still have to pedal, and yes, you can really get a work out.

Our crew will be on hand to answer questions, and help you get started on your test ride. We will have three sizes of the Cannondale Quick Neo to demo - medium, large, and women's small. Come experience the new progressive pedal technology, hear how quiet it is, and feel how easy it is to ride.

For questions email David Robb or call us at 802-387-5718. If you don't have a helmet, we can provide one for you. If it is raining we will try to re-schedule the demo.

Suspension Set-Up Clinic

Saturday, July 29th at 9am - West Hill Shop

During this clinic, he will teach you how to set up your own suspension with the proper sag (front and rear) so that you get the ultimate ride that your mountain bike was designed to provide.

David will also show you tips on suspension maintenance along with the recommended service schedule. He's got lots of valulable information that will help you to be self-sufficient on the trail. So don't miss this oppurtunity!
