We got a response from Marat. His website shows rentals, but I am not so sure how serious he is about that vs tours. For independent travelers he wants a $7000 deposit. I can live with that although I have never rented a vehicle and had to put a deposit in for its full value. It does take a bit of a leap of faith.
This is the deal breaker though: He will let me know in May if he will rent us the bikes, which ofcourse does not work at all. He is organizing a tour and I guess that takes away from bike rentals. Bummer, I thought i had something going for next summer, but I will have to come with an alternate plan.
