Cycling in Melbourne Australia
Hi, I am normally a member of sister site Brisbane Cyclist but I will be in Melbourne for a week in October. I'm staying in Prahran for the duration and was looking for recommendations of bike shops that hire road bikes. I've contacted the Melbourne Bike Centre in Prahran but they have told me that they will have road bikes to hire from September which cuts things a little close for me if they have a delay. Can anyone here recommend a decent bike shop to hire a road bike from?
Humble Vintage hires bikes.
They are both humble and vintage, but I think long-term pricing is decent.
Bike Now in South Melbourne hires both road & mountain bikes. We had a visitor from the states a couple of years ago & she rented a decent road bike from them for 3 weeks. I think it was a Kona, had STI, Mavic wheels & compact double on it. Was in good nick no issues with it at all. They even changed the brake cables over to the Continental/US orientation for her.
Thanks for that. I wouldn't mind trying the Roubaix or Tarmac as they're bike I don't mind the look of when I see them out riding up here in Brisbane. This might be my chance to give one a test ride.
