The Fine Print:
At Machinery Row we rent bicycles by the day, week, or month. We currently rent Trek Verve 3 and Trek 7200 hybrid bicycles in the following frame sizes: 15”, 17.5”, 20”, 22.5” and 25”. Ladies’ bicycles are available in a 13”, 16” and 18.5” frame size. With adjustable stems, suspension forks and suspension seatposts, a comfortable fit and easy ride. Helmets and locks are available at no extra charge.
We do not take reservations for bicycles unless it is for a group of 20 or more. One rental form will be needed for a large group with one person taking full responsibility for all rentals.
We have added Trek Farley 5 fatbikes to our rental fleet as of November, 2015. They come in 15.5, 17.5", 19.5" and 21.5" frame sizes. One rental may be credited towards a purchase of a new fat bike within one month of a rental. Please keep your rental agreement for your credit.
We also rent Trek Madone 4.5 and 4.7 carbon fiber road bicycles.These bikes come equipped with Shimano’s 105 10-speed component group and a compact double crankset. Sizes available range from 52cm to 62cm, please call ahead to ensure we have your size.
Please call for reservations for road and fat-tire Farley bicycles, as our fleet is limited. We are happy to install your clipless pedals if you bring them.
We offer child pull-behind trailers as well. They have an 80lb. carrying capacity and have lap belts. We recommend the use of helmets, which will be supplied at no additional cost. If you intend on using your own bicycle with this trailer, please call us ahead of time to ensure the mounting point for the trailer will work properly and safely with your bike.
If your child is ready for a trail-a-bike, we have them for rent as well. Rider weight limit for the 20” wheeled version is about 65lbs. Helmets are available and recommended. Please allow for an additional 10 minutes for our staff to attach the mounting hardware to the seatpost of the bicycle that will pull the trail-a-bike. Remember, the mount will require about 3” of exposed seatpost, so make sure your bicycle’s fit will not be unsafe if we need to raise your seat for proper mounting. Trail-a-Bikes are NOT compatible with carbon fiber seatposts.
We offer test ride saddles by Fizik, Cobb, Pro, ISM and the Brooks Cambium.
We also rent Rollerblades at a flat rate of $15 per day. We have adult and children’s sizes available along with helmets, elbow pads, knee pads and wrist guards available to use at no additional charge.
The Really Fine Print:
There will be a cleaning charge of up to $75 on any bicycle or trailer not returned in clean and serviceable condition.
Amounts paid for one rental period (and only one) of a Trek Madone, demo wheelset or demo saddle can be applied towards the purchase of an instock, comparable bike, wheelset or saddle within 1 year of your rental. Please save your receipt, as we have no easily accessible record of your rental, either digital or paper format unless you have us enter your complete information into our database at the time of your original rental.
All rental items and accessories require a paper credit card imprint slip as a security deposit. No exceptions!
Your credit card is not processed during your rental period, and your name, address and phone number will not be sold to a mailing list.
Payment of rental fees is up-front, and our staff will be happy to assist you with the rental form.
We are not responsible for damage to your vehicle if our rental car rack is not compatible with your vehicle, and/or is not installed correctly. Locks are not provided to secure bicycles to the rack, or the rack to your car.

Special 5-day rates for Ironman Wisconsin rentals. This is a special program outside of our regular wheel rental program. Details for this deal are available after July, as we don’t know exactly what will be available earlier in the season. In other words, give us a ring after July and we should know what will be available for Ironman Wisconsin.
Rental fees include labor for cassette swap as well as brake pads if needed.
The cost of one rental period can be applied towards purchase of a set of new carbon wheels within 1 year.
