Rental Bikes & Demo Fleet

Are you visiting the area and leaving your bike at home? Want to try mountain biking or full suspension before you buy, and want more than just a regular test ride? Or, are you just looking to have an incredibly fun afternoon with visiting friends or family? Athens Bicycle has some great options. Our demo fleet of high-end mountain bikes is available for you to try so you can learn more about these great bikes before deciding what's just right for you. Our rental fleet of performance hybrid bikes is a great option for enjoying the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway, the local roads, or the city.

Demo Fleet

In addition to our fleet of performance hybrid bikes available for rent, we now have a fleet of some of our most popular mountain bikes available for demo.

Curious about the 29+ platform? Trek's Stache series features wide 3" tires that grip relentlessly, amplifying all the benefits of 29ers, while remarkably short chainstays deliver a fun, lively ride. Hit the local trails on one of our Stache 7 models.

Want an even plusher ride? Try a Trek Fuel EX 8 (29" version) on an extended test ride and find out just how fun these bikes are in the woods. The Fuel EX continues to set the bar for full-suspension trail bike versatility, combining the best attributes of a long-travel trail bike with the feel of a nimble XC bike. Dirt Rag magazine says "There's no doubt about it. Trek nailed this one."

Curious about fat bikes? We have two Salsa Mukluk X7s on the floor available for demo. This dirt-loving bike is ready to introduce you to the joys of riding with low tire pressure and lots of traction.  

Our shop is located very close to the Athens Trails/Strouds Run State Park trail system, where you can really put these bikes to the test in the way they were intended to be enjoyed.

Each demo includes a helmet. The cost to demo any of these mountain bikes is $70 per day (24 hour period). 100% of your demo fees can be applied to the cost of a new bike within 60 days of the rental.

Fill out our online reservation form to reserve a demo bike and to make sure we have the right size bike ready to go. If you have questions, contact Athens Bicycle at or via phone at (740) 594-9944.
