MTB Bike Hire Spain
If you are only coming for a few days or a long weekend, you may wish to consider hiring a bike from us. We have a limited supply of different makes and models, specs vary depending on sizes/ models. All are equipped with short stems, wide bars, big brakes and tyres.
Bringing your own bike?
It is ESSENTIAL that you have strong tubeless tyres with something likee a HuckNorris system. In our experience tubeless tyres split on the bead where it meets the rim and not only does Huck help prevents this but it protects your rim at lower tyre pressures. Single plys result in endless punctures and takes the fun out of the day for both yourself but also for other riders.
Please note due to Covid, our bike hire fleet has depleted considerably. Please email or call us for details on 0034660623305 or send us a message.
We recommend a full suspension bike of minimum 140mm travel set up tubeless. Also make sure you have got a minimum of 180mm disc rotors to prevent brake fade on the some of the longer descents. Please see the inter-active graphic bike set-up below, click on the circles for more information.
We recommend bringing a selection of spares specific for your bike. But if weight is a problem (some airlines have a max limit of 23kgs), then Bubion has got its own bike shop offering up spares and repairs.
We ride our bikes set up with short stems, wide bars, big brakes and tubeless min 2.35 tyres with 5/6" of travel front and rear. We have similarly equipped hire bikes, please call for details.
Flat pedals or SPD type are fine. If you are learning to use SPDs do not bring them as they will distract you from concentrating on the trail while you try to clip in. Any chainset is fine, just be ready for a bit of climbing on fireroads and tracks.
Set your brake lever biting point close to the bar by adjusting the small 2mm grub screw on the lever. This is tremendously helpful on long descents against arm pump. It also allows one-finger breaking - something we show you how to do while you are here.
We recommend a bike with min 5" of travel front and rear although a suitably equipped hardtail could work.
An extra set of pads.
Organic pads are best here in the dry conditions.
Tubeless with a HuckNorris or core system is the best option. Make sure to have a tubeless repair kit with you. Also throw in a few spare spokes.
Hydration pack, helmet, knee/ shin pads, sun glasses, gloves, suncream, small first aid kit, pump, multi-tools etc.
If you havent got a dropper post yet, a quick-release seat clamp is extremely useful for quickly lowering your saddle for steep technical descents and putting it back up for climbs.
