You can pick up at our HQ on Nova Scotia's South Shore, or we can deliver them to you in Halifax. Delivery is available either free or for a nominal fee, anywhere in Nova Scotia. The bikes are new or nearly new, high-end hybrid and road bikes. We also rent tandems, electric bikes (e-bikes), carbon fiber road and premium hardtail mountain bikes.

Aluminum or Carbon Racing-style Bikes

Racing-style bicycles, with drop handlebars and brake lever shifters, these agile bikes have narrow tires, and are a delight for those who like riding a light, fast bike. Most of our fleet is comprised of Trek Madone, Domane, or Emonda road bikes with full Shimano 105 gruppo, including shifters and derailleurs, and triple or compact cranks. A few have Tiagra or Ultegra components. Note that instead of a rear rack and trunk bag, road bikes have a saddle bag, holding a high visibility vest, pump, lock, patch kit, and spare inner tube. Two water bottle cages can be supplied on request. Please reserve these bikes early; they are in high demand and our stock is limited. Rental cost is $55/day; $265/week. Full carbon frame bikes are also available for $75/day; $395/week.
