Top spec bikes with SPD pedals for rent

Hi guys.

Have a guest arriving in about 10 days and turns out he is a cycling enthusiast .

I mean so enthusiastic his wife considers him mad.x

He has asked me if any bike rental outlets have SPD pedals.

Some research tells me these are cycling shoe connectable pedals .
Your cycling shoe clips into the pedal and no doubt are for the sporty end of the market rather than the touristy end.

Any info on who has these bikes pedal combinations would be welcome.

This gent would go to Dalyan,Ortaca or Dalaman if available.

Many thanks if anyone can help .

Alan

Pete & Mag are the resident cycling nuts so a PM to them might get you a decent response. Good luck.

Re: Top spec bikes with SPD pedals for rent

Hi Alan, can't he take his own pedals? The bike shop I visited in Ortaca did not seem the sort of place to stock these. I know of nothing in Dalaman.

Re: Top spec bikes with SPD pedals for rent

Yes I never seen spd's in Turkey apart from my bike!, I would just take his own or he can hire a bike bag and take his own bike with him, the bikes available in Turkey are the usual cheaply built Chinese rubbish and I have never seen a decent one.

Re: Top spec bikes with SPD pedals for rent

They are available certainly in major cities and by mail order. I am sure that even the local cycle shops would order them for you and get them cargoed overnight.

Re: Top spec bikes with SPD pedals for rent

There is a decent bike shop in fethiye, past Big Migros to junction turn left and it is on the right. If I remember rightly they sold high end bikes so they may have them.
