    Places to rent fixed in NYC?

    It seems like bike shops only rent out hybrids and mountain bikes. Anyone know of shops where you can rent a singlespeed, fixed, or basic road bike?

    I can imagine it'd be quite dangerous to just rent out a fixed gear to the public

    i don't think you can rent a fixie anywhere, too much liability for the rental place.

    however, you can rent old road bikes and 3 speed cruisers at Frank's Bikes in Lower East Side:
    533 Grand Street between Henry and Madison Streets,
    (212) 533-6332, open 9-7 except Sunday 10-6. Closed Wednesdays

    you can also get hybrids / cruisers at Bike n Roll @ South Street Seaport:
    http://www.bikeandroll.com/locations/nyc-contact.aspx

    i think you can get them for free on certain days...
