  General Demo/ Rental Bike Information
1/ All mountain bikes that we rent and demo are trail bikes designed to climb to the top and descend with conviction. We do not rent/demo DH rigs.
2/ Pick a bike that fits your riding style and trail needs. In making your selection, consider that the shorter the travel, the better the climber, though with today’s modern geometry, even the longer travel bikes climb amazingly well. The longer the travel, the better the descender and the more stable at high speed, though once again, modern geo has made the shorter travel bikes very capable descenders. 
3/ Reserving a bike on-line is an all-day affair, meaning from open to close. Half day starts at 1:30 so show up at 1:00 to get things started. Half-day is done on a first-come, first-serve basis.
4/ Regardless of a bike’s capability, we do not let our bikes to go NorthStar’s Bike Park. There is a lot of rough, rocky, super techy expert terrain at NorthStar, and we suggest if that’s your jam, rent a DH bike from the park concession. You’ll have a lot more fun. If you break this rule, you will be held liable for the damage or replacement up to the full retail price of the bike. No exceptions.
If you love your riding experience, and are interested in purchasing a rental/demo bike at a great price at the end of our riding season, initial the appropriate box on your waiver and you will be automatically put on the list.

Big Mountain Trail Bikes

This category is all about the long travel, enduro-style bikes, with 160 to 170 of  ultra plush travel front and rear, that can handle the roughest of terrain, at speed. They will still get you to the top of the mountain, albeit with a bit more effort, as their robust design and spec adds a bit of weight compared to the shorter travel designs. 

Rocky Mountain Altitude– 170-160mm travel, 29” wheels except SM (27.5”) Purpose-built and race-proven, this 4 bar linkage design is the ultimate enduro weapon for demolishing steep trails and making every session faster.

Premier Carbon Only $150/day. Walk-in ½ day afternoon $100.

Revel Rail– 160-155mm travel, 29” wheels.  Represents the best of what Revel has learned since launching the Revel brand just three short years ago. Originally a 27.5 bike, the new 29” wheels, bigger bearings, beefier hardware, and an absurdly well-tuned CBF™ suspension platform make this bike something to be proud of. This bike’s climbing efficiency is truly impressive for a bike with 155mm of travel, and is right at home on the top of any enduro race track, the bike park, or all day epics in the hills. Premier Carbon Only $140/day. Walk-in ½ day afternoon $100.

Santa Cruz Bronson– mixed wheel 160-150 travel bike.

Premier Carbon Only $140/day. Walk-in ½ day afternoon $100.


All Mountain Trail Bikes

This category is all about the mid- travel design that affords a bike a bit shorter wheelbase than the big travel versions, offering the bonus of a more playful nimble ride. 130 to 150 mm of travel is still enough travel to absorb rough terrain and good descending capabilities, while having great climbing ability. 

Rocky Mountain Instinct– 150-140mm travel, 29” wheels except XS (27.5”). The baby brother of the Altitude has the same 4 bar linkage design offering an amazingly plus ride. If you’re looking for one bike that does it all, look no further than the Instinct.  Designed to be capable of tackling technical trail riding but still allows you to push the pedals hard on the climbs. A bonus of this bike is it’s ability to adjust the head/ seat tube angles up to 1 full degree to maximize your riding style and terrain features. Carbon at $140/ day and Performance Alloy at $120/day.

Santa Cruz Tallboy– 130-120mm travel, 29” wheel trail bike, offering awesome climbing ability coupled with amazing downhill capability and versatility. Though short on travel, this VPP designed bike is long on playfulness. An all round down-country winner. Performance Alloy $120/day.

Santa Cruz Hightower– 150-145mm 29” wheel  all-mountain trail bike.  Big on wheels, medium on travel, short on fuss, this is the do-it-all model that does it over, and over again thanks to a versatile balance of geo, spec, durability, and the amazing Virtual Pivot design. Premier Carbon Only $140/day.

Revel Rascal– 140-130mm travel, 29” wheels. A confidence-inspiring and ultra-versatile mountain bike for all applications. This fast, nimble bike will leave you surprised at the breadth of terrain that it can conquer.
