Rental Agreement

MSU Bikes Rental Agreement

as of July 2019

MSU Bikes offers select Jamis, Fuji and SE bikes for rent to the MSU community (faculty, staff, students and alumni) and visitors to campus. Rental includes general maintenance* and a lock is provided.  While we strongly recommend the use of a helmet for your safety they are not required by campus ordinances or state law; a limited number of loaner helmets are available and new inexpensive helmets are available for sale as well.  Additional accessories can be purchased if so desired (installation available generally for no cost but some accessories, like fenders and baskets, do require installation costs and some time; those accessories are yours but removing them will also be your responsibility at the end of the rental period).

While this online rental system does allow for you to submit all your necessary rental information and pay for the rental in advance, and while we will do our best to set aside a bike similar to your requested bike in type and size but we cannot guarantee that you’ll get a specific bike in a specific size as we are a busy bike shop renting bikes to walk-in customers Monday – Friday and have limited availability.

All walk-in customers will be accommodated on a first-come, first served basis. Customers must be present with their credit card to receive a deposit refund. No rentals or returns can be performed after-hours or on weekends.  While we do have a key-box next to our door for returning after hours we cannot refund deposits over the phone. 



Sorry, MSU Bikes does not offer insurance for our bike rentals. Please check with your home owners or renter’s insurance company to see if they might cover it in your policy. 



A refundable deposit of $200 will be charged upon signing the lease agreement. The deposit can be paid in cash in the shop but will only be refunded to a valid credit/ debit card. 



We are open Monday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm & Tuesday - Friday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
