Try Before You Buy

Go Beyond the Test Ride

During our more than 60 years in business, we have seen bikes change, a lot, and we have become convinced that the test ride needs to change, too. Why? Because we want the same thing for you that you want for yourself: to find you the perfect bike to meet your riding goals. All the bikes we sell are great, but the best bike for you is the one that fits your body, your riding style, and your goals.

With that in mind, we developed Conte’s Try Before You Buy™ for select models of road bikes. We want you to know, unequivocally, that the bike you’re buying is the right bike for you. That requires more than a sales floor introduction and test ride around the block. First, it requires that we show you why the bike we’re suggesting fits your body perfectly. Next, that perfect fitting bike needs to live up to your expectations on your home roads. After your fitting, you’ll take the bike home to test it out on that climb you’ve done a hundred times, mix it up in your local group ride, or ride it for 100 miles.  Ultimately, we want you to love the bike you buy.

Fit It, Ride It, Love It, Own It.™ It’s that simple.

You've had the opportunity to test ride some of the most advanced bikes in the world. Once you have decided on your favorite, $300 of your $500 investment will be put towards your new bike.
