The name says it all; these babies are best for cruisin’ the city! Our Dutch-style Lekker city cruisers are perfect for checking out the city. High handlebars mean you sit quite upright, meaning you won’t miss any sights along the way.
As Melbourne is a relatively flat city, we’d recommend these cruisers for most city rides – especially those heading down to St Kilda and the bayside.
We have large and small city cruisers that can cater to pretty much all heights. The bikes come in 3-speed or 7-speed models (but have the same gear range).
As for the saddle, the wide padded seat makes the cruiser by far the more comfy of rides, especially if you haven’t ridden a bike in a while.
If you need a little power boost to help you get around, the e-bike is your best bet. These bikes are peddle-assist so every time you peddle you’ll get some assistance from the battery. Of course even if you don’t need it, our Lekker e-bikes are a fun and easy way to see Melbourne.
Our e-bikes rentals have a range of around 50-70km, so one fully charged battery should be more than enough for a day out exploring the city, the Yarra River and bay beaches.
With five levels of assistance, you can choose the speed you want to go. At level 5, the maximum speed is around 27km per hour. Keep in mind, sitting at a higher speed will drain the battery faster.
The e-bikes come in one size and are suitable for heights 150-195cm.
The lightweight Big 7/9 Alloy frame comes with internally routed cables. It runs a 2×9 speed Shimano Drivetrain for those hard climbs as it rolls with smooth efficiency and clean gear changes. The RockShox Judy TK Fork with lockout and 100mm travel is in the sweet spot for fun and adventure.
It runs 27.5″ Merida CC Wheels on the extra small and small and 29″ Merida CC Wheels for the medium, large and extra large with 2.2″ Tyres. Ride with confidence, hitting every descent or turn hard thanks to the reliable Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes with MT-200 Brake Calipers which give you excellent braking control.
If you’re used to drop-down handlebars and are keen for a more serious ride to get the heart rate going, this is your best choice. Or if you’re REALLY serious, you could check out our Carbon Road Bike below.
Fast and lightweight, the SPEEDER shares its genes with road bikes. The new slightly more sporty geometry offers a more extended reach for added stability, while still maintaining a more upright and comfortable riding position. The comfort inspired geometry paired with control enhancing flat handlebars, and powerful disc brakes make the SPEEDER ideal for fast commuting or fitness rides. Wider tyres and more tyre clearance improve the comfort element even further, but also give the SPEEDER more grip when it counts.
When you’re looking for something a little more high-end; when speed and a smooth ride are the absolute priority. These Giant TCR Advanced road bikes are top of the line when it comes to our rental bikes. Perfect for an early morning ride down Beach Rd.
Shares the Advanced Pro frame with a Shimano 105 mechanical groupset. Stopping power comes courtesy of Giant’s own Conduct semi-hydraulic 140mm hydraulic discs brake system and rolling stock is Giant’s aluminium rimmed PR-2 disc wheelset with tubeless Giant Gavia Race 1 25c tyres.
Get the whole family on two wheels with Blue Tongue’s kids bikes. We have both 20 and 24 inch bikes. For kids from 5 to 13.
The lightweight alloy frame is much easier to handle and control than a steel frame which kids bikes usually use. While the durable suspension fork and alloy rims are built to handle the bumps kids may encounter so that this bike can last through a few challenges. Combine that with the reliability of V-brakes and you have a fun and durable bike for your kids to ride and enjoy the great outdoors.

The most accessibly-priced adventure-touring bike we produce, the Beyond 1 serves as the perfect first bike for fledgling adventurists.

Leverage-boosting bars provide added control, and an eye-watering selection of mounting points mean you won’t need to leave anything at home. Its simplicity makes it easy to service, too.
