Bike Hire

Here at Wheelism we provide bike hire across the mid-Wales and North-Wales area.

We are proud to present our fleet of Kona Mountain Bikes which we hire out from our base near Dolgellau in North Wales. We use Kona because they are great bikes from a great company. (My first ever MTB was a Kona Explosif and I’ve been an avid fan ever since – Steve) They’re robust, handle well, and come equipped with reliable components from the likes of Shimano and Rockshox.

Kona Fire Mountain, Kona Mahuna, and Kona Blast

Damages

Whilst hiring our bikes and equipment, we ask that you take good care of them as you will be asked to pay for any damage caused, be it accidental or otherwise.

Terms and conditions of bike hire to groups inc OEC’s and other organisations inc. trailer usage/hire.

Theft insurance – Whilst using our bikes and/or trailer at your own venue or off site venues, you are responsible for insuring the bikes and/or trailer against theft on an old for new basis whilst in your care.

Damages – You are responsible for keeping the bikes, helmets and/or trailer in good condition, that means if any damage is incurred whilst you are using them you will be charged for the repairs or replacement (which ever is cheaper). This includes damage not only to components e.g. gears, wheels etc, but also damage to the frames including scratches and dents. This applies to the trailer as well, so damage to wheels, suspension, chassis, lights etc.
