We have a small fleet of 13 bikes we hire to our clients directly. We have 8 2019 Trek Emonda SL6s equipped with mechanical Shimano Ultegra groupset and 5 2019 Trek Emonda SL5s on Shimano 105. They are in a range of sizes from 50 through to 60 cms and they are all equipped with compact (50/34) chainsets and 12/28 cassettes.
We think they look pretty slick! A lot of thought went in to specifying these bikes – we picked Trek because they are a brand well know to us and they produce consistently brilliant bikes ridden by millions all over the world. The bikes are used in the pro peloton and benefit from a huge R&D budget.
Our choice of bike and specification also benefits from our experience of hire bikes, both using them ourselves, and feedback from others. We chose high grade complete mechanical groupsets because of their reliability. Electronic shifting is great when it works, when it doesn’t, you’re stuck. Similarly, we know low profile wheels with aluminium braking surfaces are more controllable in the wind and will stop when you want them too even if things get a little wet.
We decided to keep numbers small. This way, our in-house mechanic can look after each one of them properly. We own these bikes and we look after them like we own them too, so no ‘auto unroll’ bar tape, dirty cassettes or bone-dry chains.
Our Treks are available to hire now at €40 per day for an SL6 and €35 per day for an SL5.
Bookings are coming in for some months in advance so if you want to ride one of our bikes while you’re over in Mallorca, please get in touch.
