  1. What a great idea. Does The New Wheel offer electric bike rentals normally? Or does any other shop in the area?

    • Hey there, The New Wheel does have a limited rental fleet – best availability is during the week. We also offer no-cost extended test rides. Come in and let us know what you’re looking for. If we can’t help you, we can refer you to other rental outfits that can meet your needs. -Nate from The New Wheel.
