Do I need a reservation?
No. However, during some parts of the year our bikes can be in high demand so we always recommend calling a few days in advance and reserving the model of bike and size that you want.
How much does it cost to rent or demo a bike?
The cost to rent or demo a bike is $75.00 for 24 hours. There are multi-day discounts as well ($195 for 3 days, $425 per week).
Bonus: You may also apply accrued demo/rental fees up to 10% of the purchase price of any new bike from Cal Coast Bicycles.
Do we require a deposit?
Yes. Cal Coast Bicycles requires valid ID and a credit card with sufficient funds available to cover the price of the bike you choose to demo. In many cases your bank will hold these funds for a few days, but please refer to your bank's policy regarding pre-authorizations prior to reserving a bike. The prices vary greatly, so be sure to ask one of our associates about the cost of the bike you are interested in.
Am I responsible for this bike?
Yes. You may be held liable for any damages that occur, so be careful! We unfortunately do not offer insurance on any of our bikes. Please inquire with your financial institution to see if you have any coverage available to you.
We DO NOT provide rental equippment.
Sorry! We are not equipped to loan any riding gear to riders. The shop can provide the right size of innertube and pedals. Shimano, Crank Bros. or platform pedals based on availability. However, we recommend bringing YOUR OWN helmet, pedals, hydration system, tools, and proper riding attire for any demo. In the event you did forget something, we do offer a number of these items available for sale.
We reserve the right to refuse rental or demo.
It's a rare occurrence, but we do reserve the right to refuse service to anyone that may have a bike on reserve. Circumstances include, but are not limited to wet trail conditions, inclement weather, condition of our bicycle or if we suspect misuse and abuse of said bicycle.
We are available 7 days a week to set up your reservation or to answer any other questions you may have about the process.
