Fender Blender Pro available for rental

We rent our best bike blender, the Fender Blender Pro (High Performance), for $250 per event day anywhere in the continental US. Each bike comes with one commercial-grade, NSF-rated 48 oz blender pitcher, the same kind in use at smoothie shops. Extra pitchers can be rented for $20/each. We recommend extras so you can increase the throughput of the activity; please see our helpful guide on estimating how many bike blenders and pitchers you’ll need for your event.

You will receive the bike a day before your event, and return it the day after your event. If you’d like to receive your bike 2 days prior to your event — rather than the standard 1 day prior — a Practice Day can be added for an additional $100 / bike.

Our bikes are sure to leave an imprint on your event. In August 2017 one past rental customer emailed, “People have not stopped talking about how fun that bike was since we used it in March of 2015. I’d say you all made quite the impression!”

Custom Wheel Branding

We offer full vinyl custom wheel wraps for rentals, and they are quite eye catching. The fee for printing graphics, installation and post-event removal is $450 per bike. Artwork must be received in print ready format. For an additional $300 fee, Rock the Bike can assist with graphic layout, design and include a rendering proof.

 

For rentals in the Bay Area, the client is responsible for pickup and return of gear at our Oakland, CA location unless paying for delivery. There is no charge to pick up a day before your event and return the day after. When you pick up your bike we will give you a quick lesson on the bike and help you load your vehicle. For information on what kind of bike rack you’ll need, please see What kind of bike rack should I use?

We encourage you to try bike towing with your rental. It’s fun, safe, practical and great for the carbon footprint of your event. Any bicycle with a rear rack can tow the Fender Blender Pro. There is no extra rental charge for the trailer wheels and hitch.

Delivery is possible between 10am – 1pm for those in a 40mi radius from our Oakland location. Further locations will require a crewed smoothie booth, or offer shipping (see below). Delivery fees start at $150, and include a overview of the bike and tips for a successful event. For deliveries in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland, we are likely to get it there by bike as shown above, no trucks or loading docks needed! The bike easily fits through most doorways and elevators at your location. Delivery also possible in the greater Bay Area by vehicle. Delivery is a special service that requires coordination among our team and is harder to arrange last minute. Please give us as much advance notice as possible. Availability of delivery services is not guaranteed, but we have also not said no many times!

Out of Town Rentals: Ground Shipping

For out of town rentals, we package and ship the Fender Blenders to you, so they arrive the day before your event, then you ship them back the day after your event. The rental rate is $250 per event day + cost of shipping both ways (usually $150 – $300 per bike in the continental US) and a packaging fee of $85. If this cost is too great for your budget, we recommend purchasing a FB Universale, which starts at $249. Unfortunately, we do not rent the Fender Blender Universale.

Out of Town Rentals: Pallet Shipping
Ship your rental on a pallet anywhere in the Continental US and receive your Fender Blender Pro ready to blend, no assembly necessaryContact us today to get an estimate (please provide a destination address). Pallet packaging is $120 for 1 – 2 bike blenders, or $150 for 2 pallets 3+ bike blenders.

What comes with my rental?

Rock The Bike sends you the bikes and blenders you ordered, but we do not supply any cups or ingredients for making smoothies. Be prepared to acquire these items before your event! Check our sample shopping lists for guidance on what to get, whether you plan to hand out 100 smoothies in two hours or 500+ smoothies over two days.

Rent-To-Own Program

The remainder must be received within 5 business days. Failure to pay within that time frame will result in late fees.
