(Even if it's arguably off-topic for the Reno page, I'd argue 90% of the people looking at a page about bike options in Reno, would potentially be interested in the on-playa rental option.)

If they do create a wiki for next year, I'll happily volunteer to add whatever I learned this year, if it would save time for other people.
