Chuck Peña PEZ sez: I had the chance to attend the gentle opening of the Hammer Down Trip Heart in Falls Church, VA (positioned contained in the Vida Ciclista bicycle store) throughout the summer time, in addition to tag alongside on a journey that Michael Reject organized for some native riders to check out the fleet of TIME bicycles. The idea of a “journey middle” is comparatively new in the USA however changing into extra frequent in Europe as a part of the bicycle shopping for expertise.

As larger finish bicycles get increasingly more costly, potential patrons are going to need greater than to only “kick the tires.” And a spin across the block is hardly sufficient to present them a way of how a bicycle will journey/deal with/really feel. Plus a potential purchaser will be extra carefully match to precise arrange on a rental bike reasonably than having to journey a motorcycle as-is to OEM spec. So the chance to journey a motorcycle for a day (or a number of days) makes plenty of sense. Particularly if the price of the rental will be utilized in direction of the acquisition.

A journey within the metropolis however not on metropolis bikes

A journey middle can also be an ideal idea for out of city guests who need to journey greater than only a metropolis bike however for whom bringing their very own bike with them isn’t sensible. NOTE: Hammer Down additionally provides (at extra price) rider led excursions within the Capital Area to incorporate the monuments, in addition to some nice gravel driving (consider it or not, a few of the greatest gravel driving within the nation is in VA simply outdoors of DC).

Time (no pun meant) will inform if journey facilities catch on in the USA. However Michael Regent and TIME are optimistic and plan to open extra journey facilities all through the nation.

I subsequently was capable of undergo the Hammer Down Trip Heart web site reservation course of to hire a TIME Alpe d’Huez simply to see how the whole lot works. Fairly intuitive/simple and simple peasy. Just a few issues to bear in mind renting a motorcycle:

  • I used to be capable of specify an extended stem and that I wished it slammed (don’t wait till the day you choose up your bike to do that)
  • You’ll nonetheless want to regulate saddle fore/aft and peak (and also you’ll must determine if you wish to journey your personal saddle)
  • You may provide your personal pedals or select from SPD-SL or SPD pedals

Positively not your typical rental bike
