    Any owners of Specialized Demo 7 (medium) in GTA

    ..who can let me take a bike for a 2-minute ride in a parking lot (on any other place) of your choice ?
    I'm looking to grab a used Demo 7, but not sure if it'll fit me size-wise, and the seller is too far away to just drop by for a test ride - so finding trying a bike locally would really help.
    Or, are there stores in GTA that sell those bikes ?

    Cheers

    I dont have one my self but being a employee of a bike shop I can say one thing, coming into a shop and wasting someones time so you can test ride a bike you dont even plan on buying from that store is a dick head move. Not knowing if a bike will fit or ride the way you like is a chance you take when you buy sight unseen.

    If I will come to the store, I will let them know I have no intention of buying. If they're too busy - fine.
    You're making assumptions about other people without knowing them. Assumptions are known to be a leading cause of all screw ups. If you have no relevant info to post, please don't waste the time, life's too short.

    Cheers.

    I had the same issue when I wanted to buy a SC Chameleon. I posted up on a couple of forums and ended up buying a used frame from a guy on Dropmachine.com. You might try posting there as well. It worked out well for me.

    How much you want to pay to trouble somebody for a test ride? You might get better answers that way.

    Hm, if that's a trouble.. 6-pack for a 6-minute ride.

    Definitely a medium. Depending on your torso-leg ratio you may need to adjust the saddle and/or stem, but, from a frame size i would say medium for sure.

    Well, you made me look anyway. Fussy crowd in that retro forum. I used to hang out there (among other places) and now I mostly just stay right here in EC.

    There are just too many Americans in the other forums!

    Thanks dude, ya that's quite the forum there. Most frustrating is that the "moderator" did nothing but support the "retro grouchess" as another member put it lmao! What a joke!

    EC is best place in the world!...now if only we had mountains like BC
