Comment: Re:You 'rented' a bike for $200...? (Score 1) 228

The Hammer and Cyclery was renting them for $200, BUT you get $100 back when you return the bike. So my options were either buy a shit bike at Walmart and give it away or rent one on site. The one on site has a guarantee to work and if it breaks / tire pops, I can go back and say - hey, your bike broke - can you help me fix it? The Wally world special - not so much.

Flying in from the East Coast and not having to deal with getting a bike was well work the $100. That said, we did discover some lower cost options in Gerlach, but they require either having a bike mount or schlepping it into the RV - and you do not want a dirty playafied bike in your RV on Monday.

Plus, it was my understanding the police were hassling people about "obscured licence plates" when a bike tire is in front of them. No bike mount = one less hassle to worry about.
