Trailhead Bike Delivery Service

If renting a bike and meeting us at the trail is more convenient for you, opt for our trailhead bike delivery service! For $6o per group, we will meet you and your group at Brown’s Ranch trailhead with your bikes, helmets, spare inner tubes, and a water bottle so you can get straight to riding.

Aero Bars

AERO BARS INSTALLATION – $10 fee (also applies to personal bars)

We stock one pair of Bontrager Race Lite aero bars which we will happily install and remove for an additional fee of $10 upon request and pending availability.

Customers wishing to install their own aero bars on AOA rental bikes are responsible for checking compatibility (bar/clamp diameter, etc) on the bike manufacturers website or the “Specs” tab for each bike type on our website. They will be subject to a $10 installation fee.

Due to the unique ways that some road bikes route their shift and brake cables not all of our bikes are aero bar compatible.

NOT compatible with aero bars:

  • Trek Madone – High Performance
  • Trek Domane – Elite Performance

Compatible with aero bars:

  • Specialized Roubaix – Performance
  • Trek Emonda – High Performance
  • Specialized Tarmac – Elite Performance
