Bike Rentals

Are you visiting the North Carolina area and leaving your bike at home?
Want to have an exciting day exploring the pristine Pisgah forest or riding endless miles of singletrac at DuPont?
No matter the reason, The Hub offers an entire fleet of bike rentals. You can rent them for a single day or for multiple days, additional days are $10 less. If you ride with Clipless (step-in) pedals and are bringing your shoes, we recommend bringing your pedals; they’ll fit right inside your shoes! Bike rentals also include a helmet if needed. We also have trunk racks and hitch racks available for rental.

Notes: We do our best to accommodate any changes or cancellations 48 hours or more prior to the morning of rental. 

  •  Bike rentals are otherwise subject to a $20 cancellation or change fee. 

  •  Our rental period is for the business day, from when we open, and are due back 30 minutes prior to closing. 

  •  Due to the high volume of rentals during peak season, a $100 late fee may apply if bikes are returned after we close. 

  •  Under certain circumstances, a bike may be picked up late in the day prior to the scheduled rental for an additional $30.  Bike must be available and not in need of service / cleaning.  This option must be requested in advance and may be canceled by The Hub staff if bike is requested for rental on the desired early pick up day.

Other restrictions and fees may apply due to: poor weather, trail and bike damaging conditions, excessive wear or damage to a bike, bike swaps, etc

While it is rare that trails are actually closed due to weather, we do try to respect the trail conditions and ride when and where it is appropriate.  If it seems that it may be less than ideal to ride, feel free to ask us for suggestions of where or when would be a good idea!

  • Santa Cruz 5010 CC 27.5"

    The 5010 is built to serve the most technical backcountry missions. 130mm of VPP® (Virtual Pivot Point) travel produces a shorter chainstay length and lower BB height compared to the 5010’s bigger-travel brethren. This creates a uniquely playful character and an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, rocky climbs. And when it’s time to head home, playtime becomes a riot. The new 5010 has a 67-degree head tube angle, more aggressive than before, and the longer top tube welcomes the use of shorter stems for more precise handling and greater confidence on rapid descents. The 5010 also shares all the latest VPP® hardware with the new Bronson. The top-tube-mounted, box-section upper link is a leap forward in durability and stiffness, and the lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes.

  • Santa Cruz Bronson CC 27.5"

    Redefining what people expect from a 150mm trail bike. The lower link tucks neatly above the bottom bracket, fully-recessed and protected from impacts. Meanwhile the box-section upper link now mounts cleanly to the top tube and enhances lateral stiffness as a result. Shock rate’s been refined in the process too, delivering greater small bump sensitivity and a more progressive mid-stroke. The geometry has also evolved subtly to meet demand from riders for a bike of this ilk. The seat tube angle’s been steepened, placing the rider right above the cranks and perfectly in position to lay down the power. Meanwhile a one-degree slacker 66 degree head tube angle combines with a 20-25mm longer top tube and shorter chainstay length to create an evermore rally-ready geometry than its predecessor.

  • Santa Cruz Tallboy C 29"

    The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape. As a 27+ bike it revels in the severe. In desert-dry conditions the wider tires float above the dust and find oases of grip where standard tires flounder. And when the monsoon comes, lower tire pressures pull the Tallboy through the slickest of root sections like a Defender on diff-lock. In its 29-inch form, the Tallboy’s renowned rowdy streak comes to the fore. Happy at full gas, up or down hill, the speed and agility of the 29 configuration will have you bagging on e-bikes at every turn.
    A 68 degree head angle and 110mm of VPP travel distills the original Tallboy’s playful character into something all the more mischievous. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and bring the Tallboy bang up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz range.
