    Demo XC 29ers Puget Sound Region?

    I'm beginning the search for my next bike. I live in Tacoma and would like to demo XC FS 29er bikes. I would also be open to 27.5 in an short travel XC design (Is the Anthem 27.5 the only XC option so far?) I am 52 and won't be taking any big drops on purpose, I like light bikes, have tended towards epic riding in the distant past, my Lightspeed Unicoi is 15 + years old, I like playful quick light bikes.

    Are there any demo events inthe region?
    Which shops have a good quiver of demo bikes in the XC FS 29er category?

    Demo from a shop is tough, at least in Seattle. But lots of demo days come through Duthie and sometimes Black Diamond. If you don't know about the Evergreen Mountain Bike Club, they're a good resource. evergreenmtb.org. The usual stuff for any region still applies too - check out the web sites for brands of interest, and see what their demo schedules look like.
