I'm planning to be in Boulder on 9/25 for a short vacation. Does anybody have a CX bike I can borrow (rent) for the Cat 4 race? 56cm. I'm coming from NE and it costs too much to fly with my bike for my 30 Minutes of Hell.
First off, plan for 45 "minutes of hell". I've done a lot of bike renting on my travels and the bikes you get never quite measure up your own bike which has your fit dialed in, etc. What I do now is get a box from my LBS, usually free, and pack it up and check it. Depending on the airline it could be $50-150 each way but if you don't tell them its a bike or give a little white lie you may get by with paying less or nothing. This is risky though. The other option is shipping UPS to a friend or shop out here. I believe Boulder Cycle Sport and Alpha are affiliated with the races that weekend and they might accept a shipped bike, it's worth a call.
edit I didn't realize BCS rented, I'd go that route.
