    So, question for all mtbers out there… Would you least a mtb if it was a decent price? Just a question to know whether or not to pursue it.

    It depends upon the terms of the lease.  Can you clarify whether it is set up as a rental where you pay a monthly fee to use the bike or is it just a financing where you basically own the bike but are paying it off over a specified period of time?  What is the lease term?

      Good question. It would be you get a super high quality bike (8,000 + msrp) and get a 2 year lease for x amount. Would total to about say 3-3.5 k for a bike at 8,000. The company would just buy bikes at dealer pricing in bulk. As a customer, you’d be saving money if you wanted to change bikes up every 2 years or less. A bike depreciates 55% each year so your 8,000 bike one year in is worth less than 4k. Some food for thought 🙂

    I’d lease if I was living somewhere for several months but not permanently relocated. Like a temporary work assignment.

    How would you handle wear and tear? Like if I return the bike at the end of two years and the drivetrain is completely worn out, the suspension is leaking oil, the tires are bald, the brake pads are down to the metal, and there’s big chips missing from the paint… what would happen?
