Seriously Considering a Creo Electric Road Bike?

Extended Length Test Rides Available

Demo Bike Program Suspended Until 2022

Due to the Shortage of Bikes in the US

We will still offer extended test rides for the Specialized Turbo Creo, but all other electric and mountain bike demoes are on hold through next year. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Demo Bikes

Try Before You Buy

At BikeSource in Charlotte, we are committed to offering you a great demo bike fleet. There is no better way to determine if a bike is right for you than by putting it through a test in real world conditions.

Take a bike home with you to use on your favorite local mountain bike trails, weekly group ride or just cruising around. Try it for the day or take it for the weekend - we're flexible. With so many options, it's a great way to see which one offers you the best performance and fits your unique riding situation.

Demo Mountain Bikes Accessories

We recommend bringing the following items:

  • Your helmet (we have a helmet to loan you if needed)
  • Your clipless shoes if you ride clipless
  • Your pedals (we have SPD and platform pedals to loan you if needed)
  • Valid driver's license
  • The credit card used to reserve the demo bike
I'm not sure I want to use my bike funds to pay for demoing a bike I may eventually buy. Good news! Keep your receipt and if you end up buying a bike from us, we will apply your demo fees that you have accrued for the past 6 months, up to $225, to the cost of your new bike.
I want to demo a fat bike but my car rack won't accommodate those tires. Once again...good news! We have hitch racks available for you to use at no charge when demoing a bike. We don't want there to be any reason for you not to try the bike at your favorite trail.
Is there a late fee? Since we could have someone picking up the bike that you're demoing when you are done, each additional day is $75.
What if I return the bike covered in mud? We would prefer you remove any evidence of the fun that you had from the bike before returning. However, if time is running short, we can do it for you for a $30 fee.
