The shop offers high end rentals and excellent guided mountain bike trips. I have rented road bikes several times in the past two years for rides in Marin and was surprised to find such high quality choices (I rode an Orbea and a Ridley). Carbon frames and Durace components... Can't do any better than that. I also took a guided mountain bike day trip to Santa Cruz with Alex. He took care of everything including setting up my Yeti SB95, driving, showing us some excellent trails, and brining us to a great market for lunch. The trails were a great mix of climbing and ripping descents with many optional features to ride if you felt like hitting jumps or log rides. Couldn't ask for a better day of hassle free riding!

Contacted big swingin and setup trip instantly. Went out, with Brian on Yeti SB95 to a trail that suited my riding abilities, and just what I wanted to experience norcal riding. If I come to visit the area I will undoubtedly do a trip again with big swingin.

We wanted to take our family on trail ride here in the Bay Area, but didn't want to burn up a bunch of time finding a great ride, or worse yet, end up on adventure gone wrong, by selecting a poor option. We hooked up with the guides at Big Swingin' and they crafted an awesome 1/2 day trip for us. The trails were stimulating for myself and my husband, who ride regularly, but not too tough for our 12 and 14 year old boys to handle - in fact, they had a blast! We also had the chance to ride some sweet bikes from Yeti and Niner - awesome way to spend the day! Thanks Big Swingin' - we'll be back.

I tagged along with my husband on a business trip to San Francisco. We ride mountain bikes at home in Vermont, where we have a lot of nice rides. My hubbie contacted Big Swingin Cycles by phone a couple of days before we arrived and arranged a half-day tour. Our tour leader Alex set me up on a Niner Jet 9 carbon and my husband on a nice Yeti. Alex took us to Marin County where we rode a few loops on a single track loop called Tamarancho. I have to say it compares favorably to our best trails in the Green Mountain State. I love the mountain bike culture of Northern Calif. (at least what I saw of it). Alex was a knowledgeable and fun guide. My husband and I plan to come back to SF this summer and take another Big Swingin tour.
