    What brand of bikes are sold out in AZ???

    I'm coming from the East Coast to visit family in North Phoenix, and was wondering if I'll be able to test ride or see brands of bikes that I wouldn't see in the Northeast.
    Any advice or local companies from AZ or CA to look out for??

    That's pretty vague. You're supposing we're familiar with what's for sale in your area. If you could be more specific about bikes you're interested in, folks could probably be more helpful.

    You're right. I guess I'd be interested in looking at hardtails under $1200, and maybe West coast based companies, or Southwest based companies.

    Titus

    is a local Phx company. Yeti and Bionicon have done plenty of bike demo days; however, it would take a major stroke of luck for you to hit one of those while you were out here.

    It's best if you planned to send out your bike or rent.

    Santa Cruz Chameleon is a tough and versatile West Coast hardtail. I use mine as a trail bike/freeride rig. Some folks set them as rigid 1speeders.

    They also make the Jackyl for Urban, DJ, 4X, and slalom. Not sure if the frames are USA built anymore though.

    You seem to be more interested in different manufacturers, but here's another thought. At the risk of stirring up a worn out, old debate, I would say that 29ers seem to be more prevalent in Phoenix than other places I've ridden lately. This summer I rode in Colorado, Wyoming, S. California, and Texas. I see way more 29ers in Phoenix area than I saw in those places. Anyway, maybe you ought to try a HT 29er, from whatever manufacturer, while you are here. Good luck and have fun while in Phoenix.

    Clockwork already mentioned it, but Pivot is the new big-deal name around here. I believe they have a good loaner/demo program, too.

    I'd give the 429 and the Mach 5 some time if you get a chance.

    No bikes are sold here in Arizona anymore. We all have to drive to Mexico to get our bikes. Damn NAFTA.

    Sorry, I couldn't help it.

    I've heard of Rocky Mountain and I thought it was a Canada based company.

    What's so stupid about it? Did you understand the question?
    I was under the assumption that more West coast bike companies would be sold in AZ, and the fact that I'm coming from NY, that maybe I would see some brands of bikes out there that I normally wouldn't see in NY.
