DEMO THE BIKE:
Reserve the bike early to make sure we have the one you want to ride. Summer and fall is the busiest time for rentals.
Know your dressed weight for suspension setup.
Measure your seat height and bring it when picking up the bike.
Bring your pedals or let us know what pedals to put on.
Observe all trail closings, rules and etiquette when demoing our bikes.
Treat the bike with care (like you own it) we don't like charging for damage or clean up (but we will)
You must wear a helmet when on the bike. We would advise you to to wear additional bike kit protection.
