Rent your dream bike.

Introducing Rent to Ride. We’ve teamed up with Studio 19 Rentals to bring you a rental plan that’s easy and flexible.

Available on any bike over $2500, Rent to Ride gives you the ability to ride your dream bike without the big investment.

The only commitment? Renting for 12 months - it’s that easy.

There’s no sneaky ongoing fees or interest, and the Protection Plan gives you peace of mind in case of accidental damage.

And if you love it, you can apply to buy it at any time!

Here's an example.

Let's look at the Stumpjumper Alloy.

To buy it outright, you're looking at $3500 upfront.

Choose Rent to Ride and take it home today for $41/week.

Add the Protection Plan ($4.38/week) for peace of mind.

Now you're riding your dream bike, without the upfront expense, for less than $50 a week!

If you can't see the product on our website, give us a call on (08) 6558 1761 and we can text the application to your phone.

For bikes valued at $2500 - $9999: Six months. Unless you have purchased the bike, you are required to rent for a minimum of six months.

For bikes valued at $10,000+: Twelve months. Unless you have purchased the bike, you are required to rent for a minimum of twelve months.

After this, you are welcome to return the bike back, or continue renting for a total period of up to 3 years.

If you return the bike within the minimum rental period (6 - 12 months depending on the bike), you are required to pay the balance of the rental charges for the minimum rental period.

If you rent it until the end of the 3 years, then the bike is yours!

You can rent any bicycle or electric bicycle over $2500.

The bike can include accessories that are part of the bike (for example; pedals). Any accessories will need to stay on the bike upon return, or be purchased with the bike if purchased.

You cannot rent accessories that aren't part of the bike (for example; shoes).

Payment is debited on a set day each month from your nominated bank account. If this day falls on a weekend or public holiday, it is debited the next business day.

Good idea! The Protection Plan is available, and highly reccomended.

This is available through Studio 19 at the time of application, and is calculated at approximately $5 per $1000 of retail value, per month. For example, a $4000 bike costs approx. $20 per month to insure.

The Protection Plan covers accidental damage (up to $2500) as well as fire and theft. It does not cover regular wear and tear. Please refer to Studio 19 for full details, conditions, and the most accurate quote for your application. Simply begin an application to find this information.

Every bike purchased from Empire Cycles includes a complimentary Tune-Up within the first 6 weeks of sale. This means we will make any necessary adjustments within this period free of charge.

The Rent to Ride program assumes normal wear and tear for the rental period, however it is the responsibility of the renter to return the bike in good working order, meaning some repairs may be in order at the time of return.

Servicing is at the discretion of the renter based on the level of performance they wish to gain from their rental.


You can apply to purchase the bike from Studio 19 at any time, even after renting it for one day.

There is a one-time fee of $29 for any successful application.

After this, there is no ongoing fees, other than your monthly rental payments.

Contact Studio 19 when you would like to return the bike. After your return has been approved, simply drop your bike back to Empire Cycles.

If you choose to return the bike, it needs to be returned with all parts and components that were originally on the bike.
