I was visiting the US from Singapore on business and found I was going to be in San Jose over Memorial Day week-end. Getting withdrawal symptoms from not cycling, I thought I would find out if I could rent a bike. I did this over the web from New York and I found several shops in the vicinity. I called around and Undiscovered Country said they could fit the bike I chose (a Scott road bike) with Speedplay pedals. It's hard enough renting a bike you haven't ridden before, buying new shoes and cleats and then riding on the "other side" of the road without falling off your bike because you can't unclip. Next, they delivered the bike to my hotel before I arrived (at a small cost but very welcome). After arriving I had to rush from the airport straight to the nearest bike shop to the hotel that sold speedplay cleats (La Dolce Velo who were also awesome and took me on their shop ride the following morning), Now i had to check the set-up. It was perfect! I didn't need to alter a thing and it was just like riding my Trek back home. While I was at the bike shop not having seen the bike at the hotel, I also bought a spare tube, arrived at the hotel to find the saddle bag had 2 cartridges and a tube inside and, nice touch, a little name plate on the back with my name on. Altogether a wonderful experience! I hope to come back and do the same again.
