WHY SHOULD I Rent from GBS?

  • We always take the extra time to dial in the fit, and suspension setup to give you the best experience possible.
  • We're conveniently located in a mountain biking mecca with hundreds of miles of trails right up the road.
  • Lookout Mountain is a short distance away, and one of the best road rides around.
  • Our state-of-the-art rental bikes are carefully maintained, safety checked and inspected between every ride.
  • If we can't serve your needs, we'll help find someone nearby who can.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

  • Call, email or stop by the shop and talk to one of our staff. We can decide together if our bikes are right for your adventure.
  • We'll discuss options for bikes to ride, and places to ride them, and we'll come up with a plan.
  • Sign our Waiver, submit photocopies of Credit card and ID in-store, and get set up on the bike.
  • Pay $100/day for carbon or $60/day for alloy/steel , and the bike is yours to ride for 24 hours.

BEST PRACTICES:

  • Plan at least 7-10 days ahead for all rental reservations. This is especially important in the busy summer months.
  • Weigh yourself with all your standard riding gear on (if that's not too weird) - this will help with suspension setup.
  • Measure your seat height and memorize this number. This can speed up, and create consistency in the bike set-up process.
  • Know what kind of pedals you prefer, and we'll likely have a pair for demo so you can leave yours at home.
  • Never ride soft, muddy, or wet trails. We take this quite seriously, and we care a lot about the health of our local trails.
  • Have a plan for safe transportation and storage of demo bikes while they are in your possession.
  • Bring your own helmet - just because it probably fits you nice. We have helmets though. Don't stress.
  • Be honest about your level of experience, and don't be afraid to ask as many questions as needed to feel completely comfortable.
  • Bring a parent if you are under 18 years of age. Sorry kid.
