2016 has been the first year in which we as a company have actively run demo’s for bikes. In the past its been quite difficult for riders to demo our products without a bike.

This year we invested in a fleet of bikes which consisted of what we think are some of the best bikes on the market. We’ve been running a series of Hopetech Women’s rides up and down the UK, offering demo bikes for hire at the rides. The ladies have a chance to demo a range of bikes from; Santa Cruz Bronson’s, Juliana’s, Orange Four’s and Specialized Rhyme’s. By far the most popular bikes for the ladies has been the Juliana’s – in particular the Furtado. With Hope finishing purple components, we think this definitely a bike to turn heads.
