Shortly after moving to Portland, Chicagoan Dan Sloan discovered that he might have a knack when it came to bikes, specifically rebuilding them. He let the folks at the Community Cycling Center mentor him as he asked a lot of questions, and before he knew it, he was rebuilding bicycles at home. When he noticed the dearth of bike renters in northeast, he decided to take his collection of 20-plus vintage, 1980s American and Japanese bikes that he'd amassed and turn it into a fleet of rentals. If your bike is in the shop or you just need a bike for a visiting friend, you can, as long as you're 21 years old, have a credit card (for deposits), and $25-30, rent one of Sloan's bikes for the day, each of which comes with lights, a lock and a helmet. Arrangements can be made by calling Sloan and reserving a rental between 10 a.m.-5 p.m., seven days a week. Chad Walsh, 3/6/2012
