    Looking to borrow / rent 2 mountain bikes for 3 months

    Hi, I am traveling from Australia to the US and renting an RV for 3 months. I am looking to get access to 2 mountain bikes with front suspension a minimum. Buying and trying to resell will be quite onerous. Instead of buying some junk, I thought I would float the idea of renting some bikes from those on this forum. I am willing to pay up to $600 for 3 months for bikes in good working order. Not expecting anything top of the line, just was hoping to be able to get around on something better than Walmart specials. I am flying into LA and then heading south east to Tucson, then on to Flagstaff, then Vegas, then zig zag east. Was hoping to pick up bikes in LA. My dates are from 2 April 2013 to 24 June 2013. Cheers Blair......

    ^^^ Topanga Creek Bikes is a good, reputable shop for sure and they carry a lot of good gear. Try them for sure. Alternatively, you could check the Path in Tustin. They might cut you a deal on an older demo if you wanted it for a couple months. Might be worth an email/call in to both shops and see what they can work out for you.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    You might also try seeing if there are some bike shops convenient to your route planning on selling their demo bikes.
