    What about us?

    On the front page of MTBR today there is an article regarding Rocky Mountain's 1st Annual Rocky Demo Tour. The tour is only for the U.S. Shouldn't a Canadian bike company also tour Canadian bike events?

    If they have done this in the past in Canada please correct me.

    i think the only part of them that are canadian is that there assembled in canada (just so they can still label them "Made in Canada"), i think there are only a couple models that are actually made in Canada.....i guess that was slightly off topic.

    May be the tour is something different but....

    Last year the demo day at HardwoodHills had various manufacturers bikes, Trek/Gary Fisher, Rocky Mountain, Specialized, Haro, Norco , Opus sp? & Devinci. The weather was iffy so not many people showed up, which was great for me demo 'd - 5 bikes.

    Norco Fluid - hated it
    Rocky Mountain Moonracer - ok but didnt feel comfortable
    Opus - liked it, similar to my old Santa Cruz
    Devinci Remix, not stock parts prob worth 6k - liked it more
    Haro Sonic - totally stock - liked it best.

    I believe there is also a demo day at kelso.

    minor detail, but the moonracer is made by devinci.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Actually major brain fart on my part.... my post is now semi relevant, first poster was correct then , as I go through all the bikes by memory - cant recall if Rocky was there or not at the Demo, was so focused on trying the Remix SL.

    As you politely stated, the moonracer is a Devinci, in fact a guy who rides with us has one doh. Thanks for the correction.
