One of the founding principles of Frame Up Bikes is that you should be able to try a bike before you buy a bike regardless of the amount you are planning on spending. While we haven’t reached the true zenith of this principle we do have a small fleet of bikes available that you can take to your favorite trail and give it a shakedown. Have a friend from out-of-town? Rent a bike and show them some local trails or make a day of it and head to Santa Cruz.
If one of the bikes you ride ends up being the bike of your dreams and you decide to purchase a bike from us, the amount of your rental is applied to the purchase price*.
Click below to reserve a bike and be sure to read over and/or download Frame Up Bikes’ complete Demo Agreement and Release form. To save time when you pick up, please print and fill out the Demo Agreement and bring it in with you.
* Rental credit is applied towards the full MSRP of the bike and cannot be combined with any other discount (such as a club or team discount.) Credit must be used within 30 days of rental.
** A deposit in the form of an authorization hold is required for every rental/demo product that is taken out. We will place an authorization hold on your credit card which will then be released once the demo is returned and inspected for any damages. Frame Up Bikes is hereby authorized to use the credit card to collect for any damage to or loss of the demo, without further consent or authorization from you. Any demo returned late will be subject to a fee twice the original demo amount.**
