    Call River City Bikes and ask them. They should be able to point you in the right direction.

    If you are looking to race at the Alpenrose velodrome, they will rent you the bike and teach you how to ride on the track as well. It is a pretty good deal. Wednesday nights I believe. Give them a call.

    Im headed down to Portland in a day or so and will be looking to pick up a single speed or fixed gear to ride around for a day or two. Any suggestions? I noticed some people had bikes for rent before, are they still available?
