Bootleg Canyon * Boulder City, Nevada * September 24th & 25th, 2007
Dirt Demo was awesome this year. Monday was way less crowded and we got to ride loads of the bikes that we planned on testing. Tuesday is more crowded and it’s a little harder to get the most popular bikes.
Shuttle trucks transport lucky riders to the top of Bootleg Canyon. There are plenty of XC trails at BC also to test those other types of mtn bikes.
Some of the memorable bikes:
Intense 6.6 with a custom tuned Cane Creek Double Barrel shock. The DB is absolutely the best shock any of us have ever ridden. You can talk about the engineering features of a shock all day long but the proof for this shock is to ride one on the gnarly trails of Bootleg Canyon – you’ll be sold!
Wow the new Transition Covert is the sleeper bike of the show. This is a great 27lb trail bike with 5.5″ of travel and a 68.5 degree head angle. The Covert is designed by gravity guys yet it climbs like an XC bike and descends with the best of ’em. We’re totally impressed!
The Transition Blindside replaces the Gran Mal as their heavy hitter. This bike is much improved over the old model and it sucks up the small bumps much better.
The Venue: every type of rider and bike
