Friendly guys, good equipment

My friend and I rented road bikes -- carbon, late model. Quick and easy set up -- they have everything you need from helmets to different kinds of pedals/clips as well as locks and repair kit -- and good recommendations for routes around the valley.

Very good condition bikes
Jun 2019 • Family
We rented e-bikes and they have 3 different types to rent; city, hard tail and full suspension. We rented the hard tails. All the bikes they rent are less than 2 years old and our were in very good shape. The batteries lasted all day and everything worked. We wanted to rent for 3 hours and the return time fell within their midday closed period (lunch break) and they agreed to come by and check us in or let us keep them until they got back. The helmets were clean and in good shape as well.
Pros:
Excellent condition of bikes
A large inventory of bikes, we counted at least 20 e-bikes
Good location in town
Good service
Limited paperwork or renting hassle
Cons:
Didn't supply locks

Bike hire in Chamonix
Jul 2018 • Couples
Looked into hiring couple of mountain bikes when on our trip to chamonix. These guys were very helpful and the bikes were good quality and well maintained.
We would hire from them again if we come here again.

Bike rental
Jul 2018 • Couples
I had the opportunity of visiting Chamonix for a couple of days prior to hiking Mont Blanc. I wanted to get in a couple of days of road cycling and Legend was very responsive. I emailed a couple of shops from canada and they were the only ones to respond. They had Giant TCR Advanced 1 bikes to ride, which are a quality set up (ultegra drivetrain and 105 brakes, gearing) They offered me a helmet, look pedals, so all I need to bring were my shoes and an engine that can handle the mountains. I arrived at the shop the night before and confirmed the rental, everything was correct and waiting for me (sometimes I worry about things getting lost in translation with these foreign country rentals). The next morning was reasonably flawless, we adjusted the seatpost a couple of times, we went through the wheel changout process for disc brakes (which I don’t have at home but we’re an absolute godsend on these wickedly fun descents) and then I was on my way.
I returned the bike in 15 minutes with a weird clicking sound, the mechanic immediately put it in the stand and figured out it was simply the gear shift cable hitting the pedal. He bent the cable out of the way and off I went.
I spent two days and 6 hours in the saddle using suggested routes from the store and borrowing from Strava. Some of the most picturesque riding I have seen.
Thanks to Legend, for making this happen flawlessly. Here is my HiViz giant.

Great bikes!

LEGEND'CHX CHAMONIX rents fantastic-quality VTTs and road bikes, will deliver and pick up at your door, and even got a new kind of dual pedal (platform + clip in) at our request. Nice guys, too.

VTT is very popular in the area. Many trails, but beware: some are extremely difficult, even off lifts.

You can bike down the valley then use Travis to return.

My only criticism isn’t specific to this store: prices are high in this area and you won’t find cheap bikes here.

Rented bikes for the family and everything was perfect. New bikes, new helmets, and helpful staff. Rented for 6 hours and went from Chamonix to Argentine. Fun day trip. Highly recommend this bike shop.

Unrepentant rip off merchants!!!
Sep 2017 • Solo
I have just been scammed out of €54 by these guys. Took a bike out for a trial. paid the rental price, then went to buy the bike only to be told it wasn't actually for sale. When I complained, instead of trying to rectify the situation they told me I should buy a different bike, that it was all my fault and that I was behaving like a 12 year old boy.

I will never be setting foot in this store again.

We used this shop to hire bikes for us and our 10 month baby daughter twice. Fantastic service with lots of advice and tips about where best to go with such a young baby. Help fitting our baby on the bike seat. All round excellent service at a good price. Thanks again!! Xx

Very helpful staff, had a fantastic time riding the bike trails around Chamonix in the snow, the bikes were excellent and I don't think we pushed them anywhere near their limits! If you are a bit scared of the inclines then get an e-bike. One of the highlights of our week in Chamonix!
