Whether you're visiting Davis for business, vacation or academic pursuits, our lightweight "comfort hybrid" bikes are a great way to get around here. Ken's fleet contains a variety of quality, well-maintained city bikes in sizes to fit most anyone from 4’10” to 6’6”; most are Specialized Crossroads customized for Davis riding with a 7-gear drivetrain, Flat Attack tire sealant, water bottle cage, kickstand, reflectors, taillight and more. Some have fenders & baskets; please ask if these features are important to you. We'll also offer you a helmet and a headlight with every bike, at no additional cost. Kids' bikes are of equal quality & similarly equipped, yet sized for riders 3'6" to 4'10". All are comfortable, easy-riding bicycles that most anyone can have fun with!
It's more fun together! For fun rides with family or friends, or even a romantic picnic with someone special (yes, we've rented them for marriage proposals) or simply for introducing a non-cyclist (inexperienced? vision- or balance-impaired? anyone!) to the joys of the open road, nothing beats a tandem bike. If you've never "captained" a tandem, we'll even give you lessons (appointment preferred). You'll ride in luxury on a beautiful Raleigh Companion -- suitable for all the purposes above, though not for serious touring or racing by performance tandem teams.
For kids shorter than 4'0", it's generally safer and easier to see Davis with the young ones attached to your ride -- so we rent both an Adams Trail-a-Bike (for ages ~ 4-1/2 to 9; maximum load 85 pounds) and a Burley Cub Trailer (for one or two children ages ~ 1 to 5; maximum total load 100 pounds).
When it's time to get serious, you want a real road bike. Ken's fleet of SPECIALIZED road bikes are fast, fun, reliable machines and we'll make sure they're tuned up and ready for your ride. Rent one for a great way to stay in shape away from home, or find out how much you like this sport!
(And if you want or need even more performance, try a new TEST CENTER road bike.)
Whether you're ready to try mountain biking, thinking of an upgrade, or just need something to try the local trails, you'll find we're only a short drive from hundreds of sweet trails - and our friendly staff can point you to the best ones right now. Read more about our selection of fine Specialized mountain bikes!
(& if you want to step up to the latest brand-new carbon-fiber full-suspension bikes, check our TEST CENTER selection.)
Specialized Test Center
Finally, Ken's offers high performance Road and Mountain Bike demos for those looking to try out the latest innovations in high performance bikes. Please bring your own helmet; we supply flat pedals or toeclips for those who want, but most test pilots will want to bring their own choice of shoes & pedals to get the most out of these fine bikes.
Bike Rack (for Car)
If you need a short-term way to transport one to three bicyles on the back of your motor vehicle, we offer the tried & true Hollywood Rack for rent. Proven in years of use, this model will fit most (but not all) vans, wagons, hatchbacks, SUVs and many sedans.
