Hello there.

I'm from northern Virginia, but my family and I are heading out to Tucson at the end of the month to spend the holidays with my parents. My wife and I have heard that the biking there is great, so I'm thinking about sending our bikes since we're kind of fussy about our rides and renting for two weeks will probably cost as much as if not more then the shipping costs. There's a shop out here that I'm completely comfortable with that'll disassemble our bikes and pack them up for shipping. The problem is, I have no idea about Tucson bike shops.

This is where you guys come in. I'm hoping you can point me to the good shops out there that I could mail the bikes to for reassembly and, later, disassembly and re-packaging. What are your favorite shops? My parents live near E. Sierra Vista Rd and N Cactus Blvd, if that helps, but I'd rather drive a bit further to a good shop than go to a closer iffy one.

BTW, I'm also looking to rent a bike rack. Is this something that shops will rent or should I just go out and buy one? My parents don't have a lot of room and we only go out there about once a year, so buying would be my second choice.

Thank you very much for the help.

I think you'll be out of luck on a rack but in terms of good shops:

Fair Wheel Bikes
Arizona Bike Experts

I have no idea where those crossroads are but these shops are in "central" Tucson near the UofA.

Those are my favorite shops in Tucson. The folks at either one will set you right.
