“This is the coolest bike I’ve ever seen” says the first customer to lay eyes on the freshly assembled Ibis Mojo 3.  We couldn’t agree more.  This is the future and where bikes are heading rapidly.  Crazy short chainstays and 2.8 rubber makes this bike look like a mini monster truck.  Yet riding it feels like you always dreamed your bike should feel.  Endless traction, yet light weight, with that Ibis snappy pedaling.

Ibis Mojo HD3--27.5" Plus

$89.99 per business day.
Sizes Available: Small (not a plus sized tire), Med, Large, XL

The new Mojo HD (HD3 for short) is the third act in the Mojo HD/Mojo HDR trailbike trilogy. Everything is new from the ground-up, including room for 2.8″ tires and Boost spacing to make all that rubber fit. Geometry is fully modern: longer, lower and slacker, with 6” of plush rear wheel travel.  Ibis also achieved a drop in weight and pedaling performance on par with the Ripley, so the bike is very fast going up, and scary fast going down. Check out the video below of Ibis sales guy Jeff Kendal-Weed riding in Lake Tahoe.  This company is driven by people who know how bikes should handle and ride.

Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon--27.5"

$89.99 per business day.
Sizes Available: Large

The Santa Cruz Nomad:   I think the best way to describe this bike is to call it a mini downhill bike that still climbs and pedals well too.  This bike mows down gnarly descents and puts huge smiles on faces.  The build kit is on point, Sram XO1 eleven speed 1X drivetrain, with Rock Shox Pike fork, Monarch Plus Debanair shock, Reverb dropper seat post, and Shimano XT brakes.  All of the trails you ride will be completely shredded when you are done riding them on this bike!

Santa Cruz 5010 C II--27.5"

$89.99 per business day.
Sizes Available: Med, Lrg, Xtra Lrg

Do you want a firm pedaling, quick climbing, shortish travel FUN bike?  In the old days a good climbing XC bike meant that it probably was NO FUN to descend on.  The new Santa Cruz 5010 carbon throws all that out the window. A low bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays, longer top tube, slacker head angle, and 125mm of progressive VPP™ suspension give 5010 its snappy, nimble, ride. A 67 degree head angle adds climbing agility into the equation, while a carbon fiber frame keeps things light.  5010 is the tool for that Fruita back country mission you’ve always been dreaming of.

Trek Remedy 8--27.5"

$69.99 per business day.
Sizes Available: 17.5" small --18.5" Med--19.5" Lrg--21" XL

The Trek Remedy has consistently been a staff favorite here at OTE.  When our store owner Rad Ross Schnell rode for Trek he had design input into these bikes, and our demanding local terrain pushed the design further.  Bringing bigger wheels to the Remedy was a long, well thought out process.  The expectations for this bike were very high, as the 26″ wheeled version was so popular.  Is the new 27.5″ wheeled version of the Trek Remedy better then the old one?  The answer is resounding YES!  This bike is simply more fun to ride then the old bike, which was really fun too!

We haven’t had a hard tail in our rental fleet since….uhhhh, I have no idea.  A long time ago!  So why now?  Because the Stache is no ordinary hard tail.  When Trek started the Stache project they called it “Project Weird” because they were trying to create a bike with the biggest tires possible (29×3.0) with the shortest chain stay they had ever made.  What they ended up with is a bike that defies category and is incredibly FUN to ride.  The big tires and Dropper Seatpost make obstacles disappear and the geometry of the frame keeps things fun and playful, all while sporting a whopping tire contact patch.  If you’re curious what all this plus size fuss is about give us a call and demo one today.

The Trek Fuel EX is the coolest kids bike ever made.  From the ground up it was designed for little people who shred. Rent this bike and let your kiddo give this thing a try, but be careful, they may never let you give it back to us.

Terms and Conditions

AKA Things you should know before coming to Fruita

>Riding like a kid is encouraged here!  Leave your work at home. If you aren’t having fun while on a bicycle then you need to “check yo self!”

>Reservations are highly recommended during the peak seasons of Spring and Fall.  When reserving a demo/rental please note that the first two days are charged at the time of reservation and are NON-REFUNDABLE.  Store credit or a rain check is offered if something beyond your control comes up.  (Refunds are NOT given in the rare event that it actually rains- we can’t control the weather!)

>Our rental day is from 9am-5pm.  We use the last hour of our business day to get the bikes ready for the next day of use.  If you rent a bike for multiple days, it is due back by 5pm on the last day of the rental period.

>Demo–We offer up to $200 of your rental fees toward the purchase of the bike you rented or a new one.  Often the bike you rode is available for purchase and the price is pro-rated by how many times it has been ridden. Our demo bikes range from $2400 to $6000, a substantial investment if you are looking to buy.  Actually riding the bike you’re interested in on REAL bike trails will give you the confidence to make a good buying decision.

>Helmets and Tube Repair Kits are included in the rental price. We only charge you for the spare tube if you use it, and even that is included should you choose to purchase our $5 damage protection plan.  Info on that below….

>Pedals–We have Shimano SPD, Flat Pedals, and a limited number of Crank Bros Candy and Time pedals for your rental at no extra charge.  Consider bringing your own pedals and shoes for maximum comfort and familiarity.

>Brakes–In Europe, Australia, and NZ, the front brake is on the right hand of the bar.  Not all brakes are easily switched from side to side.  If you request a brake switch that requires a brake line swap, there will be a charge to bleed the brake system.  Let us know ahead of time and we can put you on a bike that is easily swapped at no charge.

>Damage–Western Colorado trails are challenging.  We have rocks!  Sometimes people crash into rocks.  Whatever the situation, you are responsible for damage to our bikes.  You will be given a chance to test ride your bike before you head to the trails.  ALL bikes are washed, tuned and inspected after every rental.  We take good care of our bikes and are proud of how good they look.

>We offer an optional damage protection policy that can be purchased before you ride so that all or most of the costs of an unfortunate crash are mitigated.  For $5 per day we will cover the first $100 of damage to a bike and that even includes an inner tube should you have a flat!  For damage that comes to $101-$400 you would only pay 40% of retail price and damage from $401-$2000 you would pay 50% of retail price.  If a total loss of your rental bike should occur (yes unfortunately bikes have flown off of cliffs and cars) you would be responsible for only 50% of the bike’s total retail price instead of the full amount.  Details and terms and conditions can be viewed before you pick up your bike and we can answer any questions you may have.  We think our Damage Protection Plan is a good idea, as most repairs are well under the $100 mark and most are just inner tubes which would cost $7 anyway.  Regardless of whether you purchase damage protection or not, YOU are responsible for the bike you rent.  We aren’t out to gouge anyone, we just want to keep our fleet looking and riding great so that you have a great time in Fruita.

>Rain!–It doesn’t rain here in the desert very often.  But when it does, it is NOT GOOD!  Our soil turns to a mud that has the consistency of peanut butter and weighs about ten times as much.  Wheels won’t roll through bike frames, and trails are rutted badly. On the bright side though, our soil dries out very quickly.  Often rain in the morning means sweet tacky dirt in the afternoon.  Please use good judgement and don’t ride when our trails are wet.  We update our Facebook page often with trail conditions, or call us for the latest information.

>Shipping Personal Bikes–Should you choose to ship your own bike to us and NOT rent one of our amazing bikes, please call first. We charge $15 to hold a box, and other fees apply should you want us to build or tune your bike upon arrival.  We need to get info from you before you ship.  We’ll need a minimum of your name and phone number on the box so we don’t spend an hour trying to find out whose box just arrived with no info on it.  Also, shipping rates have sky-rocketed, for most vacations it can be cheaper to rent, and it’s fun to try new bikes anyway, right?

>Bike parts kits are subject to change as needed.
