    Bay Area/San Jose Folks, Can I Check Out Your 29ers?

    Before I plop down my hard earned cash I'd like to test ride or at least fit a 29er if possible. Anyone in/near San Jose have a 29er I can check out? Maybe we can meet up for a ride and then I can just see how it fits me at least. Santa Teresa or wherever?

    I'd fit on a small 29er, or something with an ETT of 22.2" - 22.8" or so. I'm 5'6" with a 29" inseam.

    Anyone? Thanks.

    Look for a shop with a demo fleet...I know Niner and Specialized have good demo programs, and there are plenty of decent shops in the South Bay.

    Trailhead just had a dirt demo not too long ago. That's how I got to test out my first 29er. Most bike shops around here have demo bikes that you can rent also.

    When Santa Teresa is open, I ride there nearly every day.

    Good idea but I would be surprised if any demo fleets had a small size in inventory. To the op, good luck with that, no BS I mean it. I have two friends on small size 29ers and they both love them.
    If I had a black light this place would look like a Jackson Pollock painting.

    Thanks for those ideas boys. I'll look into the LBS also.

    Dion. That would be fun to ride with you then. I'm really close to ST and ride there when time permits. I guess it might be awhile though with all this rain. And we know how terrible ST is when it's muddy - unrideable.
