 WHY WE RENT CLASSIC, LUGGED STEEL FRAME ROAD BIKES

We've upgraded, old but durable high-tensile, lugged steel frame road bikes with new components because they provide the most comfortable ride for the lowest price. Steel frames are an especially good choice for taller/heavier roadies.  While newer aluminum and carbon fiber bikes are lighter, their crash-worthiness or yield strength is no where close.  Moreover, their higher upfront cost makes them more expensive to rent.  If shaving a few pounds off your rental is worth a few more bucks, check out our aluminum frames.  Renting a carbon road bike costs more than double and just like you would if you owned it yourself, if you crash it, you buy it.  All things considered here's why we rent steel:

"We hear and read that steel road bikes have made a "comeback". COMEBACK? We don’t think that they have really gone anywhere. Fans of steel bikes have remained loyal. As recently as 20 years ago, a professional rider feeding his family with his pedaling talents rode a steel (cromoly) bicycle. End of story as far as frame materials went. Steel was the gold standard. Since then, many different materials have come onto the scene…some more successfully than others.  The general consensus remains to this day that steel (cromoly) frames deliver the best overall ride. Other materials might make a frame stiffer, lighter, more aerodynamic, and in some cases some materials might make a frame even MORE compliant and comfortable than steel tubes, but the idea is still to make them all ride as close to steel as possible. 

Making a great frame that rides incredibly well requires the balance of all these characteristics (comfort, shock dampening, weight, stability, traction, etc.). These attributes are all directly related to one another. Making a frame lighter automatically changes or "digs into" one of the other distinguishing performance features. So all of these important riding aspects must be considered carefully and be balanced. It seems that steel frames keep this balance at a more favorable ratio than any other frame material."   SmartCycles
