ROADSTER CITY BIKE RENTAL MEDIUM 5' 4" to 5' 9"
Simcoe started right here at Curbside Cycle and we feel there's no better way to explore Toronto than on a bike designed for Toronto. These bikes feature wide-range, low-maintenance three-speed gears and come equipped with fenders, rack, bell, kickstand and a full-chaincase so that you can hit the town in your finest finery.
Like Denmark, where Simcoe gets its strong Scandinavian lines, we believe that when it comes to bikes, gender is over. In Copenhagen, many men ride a Step-thru and many women a Roadster. What makes these bikes different - and this is important to note before renting - is that each have a very different geometry.
If you like to sit upright, then a Step-thru is for you. The Simcoe Step-thru has a much taller head-tube than the Roadster, and this positions your back much straighter so you're not only comfortable, but safer too. If you prefer a little bit more zip in your ride, then go for a Roadster. The Roadster has a lower head tube that declines your position somewhat, putting more power into the pedal and more weight over your steering.
Your Simcoe rental comes with a mega-strong Abus lock, battery lights, and a bell. Helmets are also provided, and while not compulsory, are certainly a very good idea.
Renters must be at least 18 years of age (ID will be required) and a security deposit of $500 is required and will be refunded when bike is returned (minus any damages). Rental fees are applied to your card when bike is returned.
