"We are gratified that in less than a year, TriCycle Rentals has transitioned from an idea to a successful operating company. The triathlon community has embraced the concept of race-day bike rentals, including those new to the sport as well as seasoned racers looking to simplify travel or 'demo' a top-of-the-line triathlon bike, commented Jeffrey Goldberger, co-founder of TriCycle Rentals. "While 2011 was a year in which we refined our service offering, we view 2012 as an opportunity to grow - from 21 bikes to 30+ bikes and to broaden our geographic coverage. The common denominator of triathlons, whether you're racing an Olympic/5150, Ironman 70.3 and Ironman 140.6 distance, is the desire to concentrate on the race and to eliminate outside distractions such as how you're going to get your bike to the race. TriCycle Rentals is committed to serving the needs of the triathlon community."
In an exclusive arrangement with Orbea USA, one of the leading manufacturers of triathlon bikes, Tri-Cycle Rentals' fleet is comprised of 2011/12 Orbea Ordu SLT triathlon bikes of various sizes and are equipped with Shimano Ultegra Grupo. Each bike is outfitted with water cages, tool kit and bike computers.
Added Tony Karklins, Managing Director of Orbea U.S.A., "We are proud to support the efforts of TriCycle Rentals through our shared vision of putting the needs of the athlete first. This relationship is mutually beneficial and one that we hope to grow together over time. Orbea's superior bike technology combined with TriCycle Rentals' unique service offering has proven to be a winning partnership."
