We rent bicycles!


Located across the street from the world-renowned Santos Trails, we have the bicycle and accessories needed to make your ride your best!

The Santos Trails have something for everyone: casual trails for a leisurely ride or the beginner mountain biker, more advanced trails for those looking to get a little dirty, and super technical trails with boulders and jumps!

Santos recently received bronze-level Ride Center recognition from IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association), one of seven trails in the entire world to receive this honor!

The trails are open every day, and so are we! We are the only Ocala bike shop that is open 7 days/week!

What is the best tire for your ride?

Trying to decide on new tires for your mtb?

the narrow tire (1.8 – 2.1) would offer:
- lowest rolling resistance (good)
- easier acceleration and pedaling because of low spinning mass and small tread contact
- less floatation over rough and sandy terrain

the medium width tire (around 2.2 – 2.5) would offer:
- increased grip
- increased rolling resistance- average acceleration and pedaling because of increased spinning mass and increased tread contact

the wider tire (2.5 or wider) would offer:
- highest grip levels for their intended use
- highest rolling resistance, poor acceleration and high pedaling resistance for flat or uphill terrain because of high spinning mass and large tread contact area
- better downhill momentum because high tire mass works with gravity to create a flywheel effect

Not sure which one is best for you?  Stop in and ask the experts:  Dano, Donnie and TJ!
