2019 Rental Bikes are ready to go
Brick Wheels has the largest and most versatile fleet of rental bikes in the North, and we’re open 7 days a week to help you enjoy Traverse City. We’ve got bikes to fit the whole family with name brands like Trek, Cannondale, and Electra, all expertly tuned and maintained. A Brick Wheels rental includes helmets, tubes and tools, and even a lock, so there’s nothing in the way of your riding time.
If it’s an easy cruise downtown on the TART Trail, our huge fleet of Electra Townies are super comfortable and easy to ride. If you like a bike where you sit a bit more upright and you can flat-foot touch the ground, these are perfect. They feature 7-speed Grip Shift and a very comfortable saddle, and we have dozens available in both Men’s and Ladies frames. We throw in helmets, tools, locks, and even a basket if you wish at no extra charge.
Hybrids are the best of both worlds and the fast way around town, as well as one of our most popular rental bikes. They mix the comfort of a city bike with road bike style wheels and a little sportier stance. We feature Men's and Ladies Treks in a huge range of sizes with frames from 15” to 23”. A great way to check out the new Boardman Lake Trail, head up the Leelanau Trail, or simply tour a few stops around town. Make sure you grab a helmet, a lock or a basket at no additional charge.
Our sweet new Cannondale Trail mountain bikes have 29” wheel sets, plus-sized tires, and a cool “onesie” drivetrain, so you can head up to the Commons Trails or hit the VASA Trail with confidence. We’ve got every size covered, and kid’s sizes, too, so the whole family can ride. Every one gets a helmet, and a tool bag with a tube - at no cost, of course.
Speaking of the kids, no matter how young they are, we’ll help you bring them along on your family bike rides. Thule trailers are the safest way to bring the toddlers - with their helmets, of course - and as they get a bit older, a Trail-a-Bike allows them to ride and pedal along safely behind Mom or Dad’s bike.
Our Trek Domane and Madone carbon fiber road bikes are available in a full range of sizes for the tallest men to the most petite ladies, all equipped with state of the art computers and a sweet choice of pedal options - or feel free to bring your own. It’s the very best way to try a new road bike before you invest, and we’ll even rebate you the first day’s rent with new bike purchase. All of our rentals are current model Trek and Cannondale bikes, superbly built and serviced, and complete with a bike computer, seat pack full of tools, air, and a tube, and of course, a Giro helmet if you choose.
Ever want to try a tandem adventure? We’ve got both road and mountain tandems available, set up for comfortable touring or off-road riding, and able to fit a wide variety of riders. We’ll leave it up to you to decide who’s the pilot and who’s the stoker….but we will insure that everyone involved is fully equipped for fun.
Fat bikes are really smooth and versatile, and not only useful in the winter. Our fleet always features the Trek Farley, which is amazingly light and simple to ride, too. Those 4+” wide tires will float over most anything, and take away any fear of sandy trails. If you’ve never tried one, we’ve got ‘em in all sizes, and we know all the best trails locally. All fat bike rentals include a seat bag with tools and a tube, a helmet, and a lock if needed.
E-bikes open up a whole new world of 2-wheel fun, and we’ve got all the best available to rent. They flatten the hills and shorten the distances, yet shift and pedal just like any other bike….just with a little assist when you need it. Perfect for an older rider, or a couple looking to help a novice rider keep up with a pro. Hybrid, Townie, Mountain, or even Fat, it’s just plain fun to rent an e-bike.
