My wife and I rented road bikes (Giant TCR) in late September 2011. Daniele did an excellent job accomodating delivery and pick up scheduling, and the bikes were set up spot on. No sizing adjustment needed AT ALL on pick up. These were very nice bikes... we rode 60-100 miles/day. Every bit as comfortable as my own bike.
A couple of recommendations...
It would be nice if they had a secure server for deposits.
One bike had a stuck brake cable that Daniele labored over on delivery. He got it working acceptably, but he probably needs a bike function checklist before delivering.
The bikes had a compact crank and 12-25 cassette. That was a stretch for some of the hills in low gear. Consider a bigger rear cog.
I would definitely rent from Eco rent again!

We rented 4 carbone road bikes. It was such a great experience. Delivred at our Villa on time. Bike fit were as good as our own bike.
I would greatly recommand to use Ecorent.
Hint : Don't forget to asked for a GPS (Garmin 705 or 800). It will save you a couple of fights with my girlfriend!
I rented a Vespa Gts 300 for 2 weeks during September 2011. Daniele delivered the Vespa to the Firenze Airport. He was friendly and helpful. The Vespa was amazing and I had a great time exploring Tuscany. I can highly recommend EcoRent.
We rented two hybrid bikes for 2 week duration in August 2011. EcoRent was recommended to us by the villa rental company that we dealt with and we were not disappointed. The bikes were in great shape, Daniele took time to set them up properly and we had no problems. My only minor recommendations is to have a more formal confirmation process following a booking. Thanks!

I rented a Giant TCR Advanced. The bike that was delivered to me was brand new and fit perfectly. It was set up exactly to the measurements off of my bike at home. The only thing that wasn't perfect about the bike was the rear brake cable was a bit sticky.
I had some unusual circumstances that needed to be worked out ahead of time and communicating and getting questions answered via email was a challenge for me. Ecorent needs to improve their responsiveness in that regard. That said, I found the service to be very good once I was in Italy.

We have rented Vespas two times now and everything has worked well. The Vespas have been in good condition and Daniele has served us well. Thanks!!

When searching on the internet for a reliable bike-renting company, we stumbled upon Ecorent. We rented two hybrid (brand: Gaint) bikes there this summer and we have no regrets whatsoever. The arrangements were easily made by email and when we got to Pisa, all the adjustments for our length were already made. The bikes were great, well maintained and all the equipment was included! We really enjoyed our two great weeks in Tuscany, thanks to Ecorent! We recommend everybody to rent your bike/car/vespa here!

During our holiday stay in Calsi 27.6 - 6.7.11, I rented a Giant TCR. The booking was made from home,- and the bicycle was delivered at our place in Calsi as agreed upon.
My experience with ECO-RENT was just positive and I therefore no problems in recommend them to other.

We hired a Giant carbon TCR Advanced and an aluminimum TCR Advanced to ride in the hills close to Pisa.
I was very nervous when I made the original booking, but totally delighted with the quality of the bikes and ther service I recieved. The bikes were right (I half expected the "hire car" type of service where something similar turns up), the bikes were well maintained and came with all the suplimentary equipment we might wish for (pumps, spare tubes, tools etc).
A great experienced and I have recommended ECORent already to others.
Rented two Giant TCR (full carbon) with full shimano ultegra for 1 week in Lucca end of July 2011. Bikes were delivered to and picked up at our residence with extra tubes and Daniele also provided during the week an additional tyre as one of them were worn out. All very good and the price is reasonable for that type of gear. I would definitely make use of Ecorent services again next time around in Lucca.
I found out about ECO-RENT by Internet research. About web site the information is great and the ease of navigation was one of the reasons we decided to rent through ECO Rent. Regarding website suggestions, I would update the dates on all your PDFs, price sheets and etc. Our rental experience was quite easy and efficient. Bike delivery was perfect and on time, bikes were a perfect match for the terrain (we book Self Guided Bike tour), sturdy and in great shape, about bike fitting by the bike ECO-RENT Daniele were great making sure we were comfortable.
Daniele, we continue to recommend your services. It was truly the best part of my trip to Italy last year.
I rented a Vespa GTS 300 from Danielle. He met us at Pisa airport and we rode down to the Island of Elba which hosts a great annual scooter rally. We had the bike a week, it was brand new and was a delight. We rode up to Luca and in total did 1000 k on it. Danielle was a joy to deal with and I will be using him again.

We were looking for high end road bikes for our cycling trip in Tuscany and Daniele and Ecorent did not let us down. From arranging different pick up and drop off points to providing all the additional kit we could not bring with us the service was excellent. I would highly reccommend Eco rent and will be hiring bikes from the again.
Daniele was wonderful, He delivered the Vespas to us at the villa, They ran superbly...We had a wonderful vacation...and the two days with the Vespas was the highlight of our vacation....Thanks Daniele

Ciao Daniele. I hope you are doing fine. I just wanted to let you know you did another great job for us this year for our Tuscany on the Med 2010 tour. Everything went very well. We had a couple of small issues but nothing big. So, great job!

I found it from searching on google and my rental experience was very good. Nice Giant road bikes, everything worked perfect all the time, but it took long time to get feedback from Daniele whether had available bikes or not. Besides wery good was bikes adjustment and ECO-RENT staff.
My wife Caitlin and I rented bikes from Danielle for our honeymoon. We were especially wanting high end road bikes, and what Danielle provided us was exactly what we were looking for. The bikes were in excellent condition, they road very well, and Danielle was extremely accommodating and professional throughout. I would highly recommend Ecorent.
