  1. Hi! I am very interested in a road bike for my commute! my budget is 500$ – 700$ and I am 6’4 and 280 pounds. I am planning on riding this bike 14 miles on the road a day. Could you suggest some of your bikes to me?

    Thanks! Rob


    • For monthly bike use, many people opt to buy a used bike (starting at $200), and then sell them back to us for around 1/3 the price in good condition at the end of the month. Bike rentals are $150/ week including helmet and lock.


  2. Hello I’m interested in seeing what u guys have in stock but why isn’t there anything showing what u guys got in stock? I just viewed shop like Columbus Cyclery and they’re very detailed about their stocks. It’d be nice if u guys have something similar. Reason I ask is cause I’m in Sacramento and would like to see ur stock before driving there blindly. Let me know. Thanks.


  3. Hello, do you do hourly bike rentals? I bart to work at the Ed Roberts Campus building (right above Ashby bart) and am unable to bring my bike with me to do a ride during lunch. Thanks!


  4. In the area visiting my son and looking to rent one of your entry level road bikes for a day, maybe two next weekend. Do I need to reserve or just come by? what is the cost?


  5. Hi I’m interning at UCB during the summer so wanted to buy/rent (whichever is cheaper) to commute everyday. I’m 5’8 and weigh about 150 pounds. Since I’m leaving after the summer I would like to spend as less as I can. Do you have cheap options available?


  6. I purchased a used bike from you in June but will be moving out of the Bay Area in December. Would I be able to sell you the bike back for a discounted price?
