Mountain bike rental in Bozeman, MT can be fast & easy with Owenhouse Cycling! Just a few things to note due to Montana’s varying weather conditions: online rentals are only available during certain parts of the year. A few times a year, we have scheduled downtime when we do a deep cleaning of the bikes and in some cases swap out old models for new ones. We try to schedule these windows to coincide with the muddiest times of the year, which helps to keep our trails smooth. These times will be reflected through our bike rental booking site as dates that cannot be selected. If you still wish to rent a bike during those times, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly!

Bike Rentals Not For Use At Lift Service Bike Parks

Due to the amount of wear and tear our rental bikes have received when being loaded onto and off of lifts and the severity of the extreme downhill trails at the resorts, our rental bikes are not to be used in lift-access areas. This includes Big Sky Resort and Discovery Resort. If you wish to rent a bike for riding in lift-access areas, please contact the resorts. There will be a $100 fee if you bring an Owenhouse Cycling rental bike to a lift-service bike park.

Choosing The Right Mountain Bike For You

Each of the bikes that are available for rent will have different ride characteristics. Some are better climbers, while others are better descenders. The main difference separating these bikes from one another is the suspension travel. A bike with shorter suspension travel will climb better, versus a bike with longer suspension travel being a better descender. It can be helpful to match the travel of the bike to the trail that you are going to ride. Headed for a more technical trail? A longer travel bike would be better suited for this style of riding. Headed out for an all-day epic and putting on a lot of miles? In this situation, riding a shorter travel bike will be more efficient while climbing. In short, when a bike is better at climbing, it will be slower on the descent. Vice versa, when a bike is better at descending, it will be slower on the climb.

We have bikes ranging in travel from a hardtail with no rear suspension to full suspension with 150mm of rear suspension. The bikes that we rent have the following suspension travel:

This list starts with bikes that climb better, with the better-descending bikes being at the bottom of the list.

Accessories To Rent:
