More info at our camp page PICK UP: We will be trucking in all of the bikes for our renters to PICK UP WHICHEVER DAY YOU ARRIVE (10:30am to 5:30pm) at our camp (Playa addresses announced in July). We are officially open Saturday Aug 29 to Monday Sept 7. Pickup available as early as Thursday during setup, but patience will be required. When you complete a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Burning Man is a relatively analog world, so print the confirmation email and bring it with you when pick up your bike. Your printout will help us find your reservation quickly. Sizing: Our bikes are harvested from our used bike shops in Minneapolis. We bring a wide variety of brands, styles, and sizes. You can pick out your bike on the Playa. DEPOSITS: Return your bike between 10:30am and 5:30pm to the same place you picked it up. We will have a table set up for returns and a person from our camp will receive the bike from you at this table and give you a return receipt. Keep this receipt as proof of the return. (Pro tip: take a photo of your receipt immediately.) The bike must be returned in the same shape that it is rented (all decoration and other MOOP removed). Necessary repairs (beyond cleaning and re-tuning) will be paid for from your deposit. If you wish to keep your rental bike we will simply keep your deposit and wish you well. Deposit refunds begin going out two weeks after Burning Man ends. These are refunded back to your credit card (if you paid by credit card) or PayPal account (if you paid by PayPal). After Burning Man, we will make all reasonable efforts to return your deposit. This process can take up to a month. However, if we are unable to return your deposit because of events beyond our control (such as the expiration of your credit card or a change in PayPal policy), and we are unable to reach you for instructions on how to return your deposit to you, we will hold your deposit for you for 13 months. After this time, we will charge a $25 per month service fee to your account. PLEASE NOTE: You are paying for us to transport a bicycle to and from Burning Man for you. You are paying for us to hold a bicycle for you to use. You are paying for us to maintain that bicycle. Whether or not you pick up or use your bicycle rental is immaterial. Our costs and obligations remain the same. You will not be refunded for unclaimed bicycle reservations. RENTERS PLEASE NOTE: Any mechanic work offered during the Burning Man festival will be our gift to you. Do not expect us to solve all of your cycling problems as we may not have the parts, tools, or stamina necessary to fix all issues. Renters are ultimately responsible for the condition of their bike. CANCELLATIONS may be made within 50 days of the day you made your reservation, but no cancellations are allowed after Aug 15, 2020. All reservations may be cancelled within 24 hours of booking the reservation. EVENT CANCELLATION: In the event that Burning Man does not occur for any reason prior to gate open, you will get a partial refund according to the following schedule: If Burning Man is cancelled prior to July 1, you will receive a 100% refund; if Burning Man is canceled during July, you will get a 70% refund; if Burning Man is canceled during August before the gate opens, you will get a 50% refund. If Burning Man is cancelled after the gate opens and the event officially starts, you will not have a right to any refund whatsoever. If the gate is closed to entrants for any reason during the event or prior to the event, we may close bike rental pickup for as much as the equivalent time as the gate closure. This would have the biggest impact on our operation if the gate closure prevented us from getting into Burning Man at our planned time during setup week. Note: This is extremely rare. In all of our years of operating Hammer And Cyclery, a gate closure has never impacted our ability to maintain scheduled operating hours and the event itself has never been even partially canceled. Finally, it's okay if you fall in love. Many Burners have discovered a unique and almost mystical connection to their bicycle after a good Burn. If this happens, don't suffer from separation anxiety. Take your new friend home and introduce her/him to your mother. We will keep your deposit and wish the two of you all the best in your new life together. Note: Pictures are not photos of the actual bicycle
Burning Man Combination Lock
Standard braided combination lock (no key to lose!). Rubber coated cable protects your bike. Set your own combination. Long enough to lock up two bikes so you only need to carry one lock!
Burning Man Spare Tube
Don't get stuck with a useless bike just because of a simple flat. Pick up a couple of extra tubes. (Burning Man renters will have their tubes delivered to the Playa along with their bike. We will make sure your tube is the correct size for your bike.)
