    Default Renting a bike instead of buying

    Hi Guys, are there any companies that rent out bikes long term aka lease? I don't have the capital to buy a bike at the moment. or is it not worth renting and I should just get a loan somewhere.

    I seriously doubt there would be a financial institution that will do a long term lease or rental. I can't be sure though.

    Also, long term rental doesn't make much difference on your monthly cash outlay versus an HP.

    Why not buy a 2nf hand in the right price range and finance it? Depending on your needs, there are some lekker bargains to be had in the pre-owned market.

    Or better still, look at the Chinese/Korea/India brands if your pocket is really tight.

    did you come right?
    I know that they rent bikes in Patagonia. but that's a little far and needs a sizeable budget to ride for 3 weeks only.
