My wife and I are heading to Phoenix for 5 days at the end of this week and are looking to ride as much as possible. Looking for some decent FS bikes to rent for 4 days or so. Was just looking for some recommendations (and maybe hoping that someone might want to hook another shoppie up with a good deal/decent bikes).

We have some good intel on trails to ride, but are always looking for some more info. Thanks for any further intel.

Thanks for all the recommendations. Rented some Epic's from Global Bikes. We stayed up near Phoenix Mountain Preserve/North Mountain. We rode our bikes over to those trails two days. Hit N100, and some of the off shoots (out and back first day, then road bike'd to the eastern Tamland lot the second).

The middle day, we headed down to South Mountain. We got a recommendation to ride National Trail across the range, and cruise Desert Classic Back. We parked at the 46th Street lot and headed out. After some map staring, we ran into an awesome trail steward who asked us where we were headed.

He then proceeded to take us up Mormon, to National. We eventually bailed after the Buena Vista parking lot and hiked down Telegraph to Desert Classic.

We were blown away with the town. Easy to get around on bikes for how large of an area the metro-Phoenix area covers. Also everyone out on the trails were super friendly (other than a couple of indifferent hikers).

Really looking forward to making it back in the future, as well as making it up to Flagstaff and Sedona, and definitely to hit up Rolando's again (up off of Peoria/35th St.)!

Rolando's is the bomb... its not 35th Street... but 35th Avenue...

Egg potatoe and cheese burritos.... you'll ride 10 hours without need of food after those...
