:In regards to our Beach Cruiser Perks:
We have been offering a limited number of Beach Cruisers as a crowdfunding perk for the past five years.
Last year, we were sent an email from Burning Man stating that it has come to their attention that we were
renting Bikes and Camps that were providing Bike Rental services on playa will need to cease operations for the 2020 Burn.
We have explained to them that we don't rent bikes and we don't sell bikes. We offer bikes as perks, ie gifts for contributions. These Bikes are the contributors bikes to do what they want with them.
We absolutely understand the issues with on playa Bike Rental companies but we are not a rental service we are simply a Camp raising funds to bring XUZA back bigger and better then ever before!
Having a quality Bike at Black Rock City is essential to your Burning Man Experience. We know this, which is why we have decided once again to offer quality Beach Cruiser Playa Bikes as our Perk to contribute to our Fund Raising Campaign.
What's the difference between your fundraiser perk and renting a bike from the numerous Bike Rental Companies?
The biggest difference, we don't rent the Bikes.... This is YOUR Bike!!!
With a Rental company you'll be receiving a Bike that's upwards of 5 years old.
Rental companies don't allow you to personalize your Bike
Rental companies charge MORE then our donation Perk Bikes.
Off Playa rental companies still require you to figure out how to transport your Bike to and from Black Rock City.
You are required to pay $150+ deposit for each Bike which you will forfeit if you are late to return the bike or if the bike is lost or stolen.
Couldn't I just buy a Bike from Wally World?
Sure you can. But you'll still need to transport the Bike to Black Rock City and once there, figure out how to assemble it. If you purchase your Bike at Wally World or a Mom and Pop shop but don't have a way to transport the Bike home, you can donate the Bike to our camp for use in our future fundraisers )'(
YEAH, this is MY Bike! Great, what am I supposed to do with it when it's time to go back home to the default World?-
You can gift the bike to another burner, gift it to a friend or you can donate the Bike back to our camp.
Burning Man is about De-Commodification so why rent or purchase a Bike from a "for profit" Company when you can contribute to a Burning Man Art Project and receive your own Playa Bike delivered to the Playa!!!
All pre-owned bikes have been refurbished and in "like-new" condition
- all have gone through a complete overhaul with new and freshly greased crank and wheel bearings and new tubes.
We also have a limited supply of Brand New Beach Cruisers.
We only offer the best Beach Cruisers for the Playa; Huffy, Cranbrook, Schwinn or Similar.
We maintain, service, replace /grease bearings as needed and test ride each Bike so you'll have reliable Playa transportation
We can deliver the bikes to the Playa where they will be locked and kept at our camp.
We highly recommend that you bring your own Bike combination cable lock.
We will email you all of the information you will need to claim your Bike
Burning Man is all about Radical Personal Expression, even though each Bike is ready to ride we highly recommend you bring extra lights (headlight, leds, elwire etc) and other decorations to personalize your rolling piece of art.
Please DO NOT use any type of tape, duck tape, duct taper etc on the bike. it becomes a sticky mess in the heat and nearly impossible to get the sticky off your hands and clothing.
With a Donation you will receive your own Playa Bike. This is not a Rental :-)
Thank you sooooo much!!!
