Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

This place has OCR2s for $45 a day:

Blazing saddles also has road bikes for rent.

However, one cheaper option is to speak to Victor at the bike hut:
http://thebikehut.com/rentals/rentals.htm

They rent bikes for $20 bones a day. What he has to rent is basically what he has in stock and he deals in 2nd hand bikes so it will vary wildy. He may also give you a deal on a few days rental. May be the only place you could rent a fixie.

Dunno if this is obvious, but bring your pedals.

Oh and if you're here on a saturday, you could head to Hellyer Veldrome (45min drive south of SF) and go track racing for cheap. Will need pedals, a helmet, $5 for track fees and $5 for track bike rental. Beginner session starts at 8.30 and runs until noon. Its great fun.

See http://www.stanford.edu/~roadman/Bik...VA/index.shtml for all the details.
