    Hi there, what are the chances that you will have very limited bike options on the 28th August? I’m arriving around noon to Reno and will need to pick up my Uhaul first. I’m looking for a female cruiser bike. any way i can reserve one with you guys?

    Regards, Elena

    No reservations, as stated. But you should be fine if you come on the 28th.
