Used Rental Bike Sale

We will be upgrading our bicycle rental fleet at the end of the 2015 season, so we will be making our current rental models available for sale. Used rental bikes are sold AS-IS; all sales are final.

Raleigh Venture 4.0 bicycle

Models available will be:
  • Raleigh Venture 4.0 comfort hybrid, various sizes in Men's and Women's models ($275.00 each)
  • Adams Folder 1 trail-a-bike ($150.00 each)
  • Avenir Sport Dual Trailer ($75.00 each)
Sorry; we will NOT be selling the Electra Townie 3i rental bicycles.

To purchase one of the these items, please visit our Peninsula store beginning on Saturday, September 19, 2013 at 8:00am and:
  • Select the specific bicycle that you want from our current rental units.
  • Pay a non-refundable deposit of at least 50% or more towards each bike.
  • We will continue to rent the bikes for the remainder of the 2015 season; the exact timing will be dependent on the weather. After our final rentals, we will give every bike our standard full tune-up to be sure that each bike is in good working order.
  • We will call each customer when their bikes are ready to be picked up, most likely around early- to mid-November.
Availability of the used rental bikes is on a first-come, first served basis. Buyers must be present to select their desired model and size; no phone sales.

Best of Cleveland 2015 Winner We are the Best of Cleveland - and one of America's Best Bike Shops!

We are proud to announce that for the 6th year in a row, we have been chosen as one of the Best of Cleveland by the readers of Cleveland Magazine! Thank you to our loyal customers and dedicated staff for helping us to make it happen!

We have been asked not to disclose the category that we won "Best Of" until the full list is published in the October issue of the magazine. (Hint: It's not "Best Pizza.")

In further news, we have once again been named one of America's Best Bike Shops! This honor is bestowed upon us through a rigorous process administered by the National Bicycle Dealers Association. Only a small percentage of the thousands of bicycle shops in North America make this list, and we have done it (with YOUR help!) every year since 1999!
