ABOUT THE TOUR.
Cane Creek Cycling Components has hit the road! Join us at a Cane Creek Cycling Tour event to demo premium Cane Creek components!
Brand new for 2019! Cane Creek Cycling Components’ Andrew Slowey and “Bo Buddy” will be traveling to key events and locations throughout the United States to bring the best premium components to your home trails. As a company of riders, we are at our best when we are face-to-face with our customers. In 2019, we will expand our in-person outreach through a dedicated demo and clinic tour. This tour will run from March into November.
The tour van is fully-equipped with a fleet of Guerrilla Gravity The Smash trail mountain bikes, Litespeed Ultimate Gravel Ultegra Di2 gravel bikes, and a cornucopia of premium components for your viewing, riding, and learning pleasure! The demo bikes have been upgraded with Cane Creek products to bring them to the next level — now you get the opportunity to try before you buy!
We’re not your traditional “demo program.” Sure, we have a van full of awesome bikes intended for riding, but we offer several different styles of events. If you visit our Tour Schedule page or view the events on Facebook, you’ll find all the important information about each event outlining what you need to know to participate. Here’s an idea of what you have to look forward to:
Festivals: Festivals are typically where you’ll find a traditional “open demo” where bikes are available first-come, first-served during expo hours.
Trailhead/Shop Demos: Sometimes we set up at trailheads or retailers for a smaller scale “open demo.” Bikes at these events are available first-come, first-served during stated demo hours. Please note: last bikes leave the tent 1 hour prior to event close. The best chance you have of getting on the bike you want is to arrive early.
“Cane Creek Experience”: This is our fancy term for a “non-demo” event. Typically, we’re supporting races, charity rides, or setting up at an indoor expo. Regardless, you can learn LOTS and look, touch, and learn about Cane Creek products!
VIP Group Rides: At these events, riders will reserve the bike of their dreams in advance through a link available on the event page. Riders will arrive approximately 1 hour prior to ride departure to sign waivers and get set-up on bikes. Then, we’ll all ride together in a no-drop group to experience the bikes and components in a more intimate setting. Rides last approximately 1-2 hours. Did you miss the reservation window? That’s ok! You can join us on your own bike anyway!
Tech Clinics: Tech clinics may be stand-alone or incorporated into another event style above. These events allow you to really learn more about the ins and outs of specific Cane Creek products. Want to learn how to change the elastomer in your eeSilk seatpost? Want to learn how to properly set sag on your Cane Creek suspension? Curious about air volume and travel adjustment? We’ll show you in a small group setting!
Lastly, we also do specific events just for our retail shop, distributor, and OEM partners. Do you fall into this category? Let’s talk!
