    Of the two, Poison Spider for sure. Over all, I'm partial to Chili Pepper. Great service and parts selection, and Tracy pulls a mean shot of Espresso!

    X2 on Chili Pepper on the south side of town. Better bikes (Santa Cruz), Ryon the owner is a cool guy. Also get your food at the grocery store there, not City Market, way less lines/tourons. Good luck!

    Unfortunately we no longer rent Santa Cruz (Moab Cyclery is now the SC dealer). We rent Giant Trance X1's and Marin Mt. Vision (as well as a Glory 0 and Glory DH or more extreme riding). I am still unsure as to what all mountain bikes we will have in the fall. Also because you're doing a 7 day rental, we will give you $7 a day discount (making the Giant trance X1 $33 a day).

    Moab Cyclery gets my vote. PSB and Chili are good shops too. Chili is the coolest inside and has the best wares (plus espresso). Moab Cyclery has the best bikes to choose from (Santa Cruz, Chumba, Ellsworth, Cannondale, Maverick, etc.) and a great staff.

    considering I'm going to be six days, I'm planning to do six routes. I'm sure Im going to do porcupine rim and slickrock, but Im not sure about the other 4 or probably 3 and repeat the one I like the most. which other routes you recomend and also do you consider is a good idea to rent a more XC oriented bike (trance, chumba, etc) for some routes and a more FR bike (reign x, nomad) for the the others. or I should rent the same the 6 days.
    which bike for which routes? thanks.

    Reign X or Nomad all day, every day. That would be my vote.

    I would definitely recommend a longer travel bike for around here (all the trails are super rocky), as long as you don't mind pedaling around some extra weight. Unfortunately I have no idea what we will have in the area of longer travel bikes because we are currently selling our ironhorses and our reign X0s. Also if you do a 6 day rental the $7 a day discount doesn't apply. The only longer travel bike I know we will have for sure is a Giant Glory DH, but most people don't wanna pedal that around (but descents kick ass ).

    i'd totally go for a reign x or a nomad. My buddy did porcupine on a trek fuel from poison and he was pretty beat at the end

    Rim Cyclery has great customer service and they rent Specialized, but their shop is a bit weak (to many distractions to get the job done right the first time I guess). The "other" grocery store is Village Market and it may not be as busy, but prices are a bit higher. Chillie Pepper..... sure.... I walked in to make a purchase and a young lady behind the computer in the back area didn't even look at me, didn't even say anything till I was on my way out. I would think that any customer coming in this time of year would be treated better. Moab and Poison are good shops, you won't go wrong there.
    It's not an adventure until someone BLEEDS!

    +1 for Rim

    When we have needed work on the bikes...which is usually at least once every trip, I have been nothing but very pleased with Rim cyclery. They have always had the equipment and great service.
    I just don't understand my wife....she thinks its nuts to ride when the temperature is in the 20's....go figure
