Bicycle Demos

Bicycle Demos

Thanks for your interest in renting bikes from us. Currently, we aren’t set up with a standard bike rental program.  Instead, we stock demo bikes that we primarily use as a way for folks to try the experience of road or mountain biking before making a purchase. For that reason we stock limited models, and only one of each size.

Our Carrboro location, The Clean Machine, and our Raleigh location, The Bicycle Chain, both stock a size run of mid-range front suspension mountain bikes, and mid-range road bikes for $50/day. These are available only at the Carrboro and Raleigh locations. 

We also stock a small selection of high-end full-suspension mountain bikes, and high-end road bikes at all of our locations for $75/day. 

Up to $100 in demo fees can be applied to the purchase of a new bike.

All demo bikes will come with a demo helmet if you need one, and are equipped with flat pedals for use with regular shoes. If you’d prefer to use a clipless pedal system, please bring those with you and we’d be happy to put them on for you. 

A credit card is required for a deposit on all demos.  And please remember to bring your drivers license.  You can save some time by bringing your completed rental form with you when you come to the store.  Just click on the link below to print your own form.
