Hello, I am participating in a 75mile MTB Marathon in South England and have a couple of friends joining me from Europe. Unfortunately, they cannot bring their bikes and ae therefore looking at the option of renting a bike in London (or somewhere near). Aware of all the drawbacks with renting a bike (not used to saddle, geometry etc.) but it is more a fun, not a serious activity anyway...

Hence I wonderif somebody has some good experience with rental stores that offer well maintained MTBs (touring fully would be great, but a hardtail should be sufficient) where one ideally can book a bike a couple of weeks in advance.

The spec should be ok and the bike well maintained so that it doesn't break down half way.

Many thanks,
