Planning a Maui cycling vacation? Trying to decide if you should ship a bike to Maui or if getting a bike rental on Maui save money and time? Indeed, a difficult choice for many bike riders who love riding their own bicycle. We understand and want to help you enjoy your cycling vacation.

To help you make an informed choice, we present 4 benefits of riding a Maui bike rental instead of shipping a bike to Maui:

  • Renting a bike on Maui gives you more riding time. You won't need to spend time packing and preparing your bike before you depart for your Maui cycling vacation. And, when you rent a bike instead of shipping a bicycle to Maui, you'll be on your bike road riding (or mountain biking) sooner and avoid wasting precious vacation time unpacking and assembling your bike at your hotel or vacation rental. Yes, you'll spend a few minutes to pick up your rental bike while we adjust it for you and install your pedals. Wouldn't you rather spend time hanging out in a bike store than at the airport waiting on your 'oversize cargo' to be available in baggage claim. Most of our customers install the bike car rack while we are processing their bike rental.
  • Avoids risk of damage to your own bicycle. The airlines are notorious for abusing bicycles shipped to Hawaii. Avoid arriving on Maui all set to enjoy your long overdue cycling vacation only to be disappointed to find your bike damaged by the airline and needing to waste more time dealing with the airline and processing damage claims. Don't risk it, rent a bike on Maui!

Whatever you decide, stop into our West Maui bike store in Lahaina to talk story about bike riding on Maui.

West Maui Cycles July Bicycle Riding and Tech Tips

We all do it. We ride the Maui hills for the challenge and bragging rites! The West Maui Loop and the mother of all road climbs Haleakala. Maui mountain bikers love the steep climbs around Poli Poli State Parkand the West Maui Mountains. And, don't forget the ups and downs of Classic Mac Nuts north of Wailuku town. What we all do, but never think about, is shifting.

No I am not crazy! There is a right time and a very wrong time to shift your bike gears to an easier ratio. You have to think and plan ahead. You see, shifting under load during a climb will not only make a lot of chain noise, shifting at the wrong time could cause the following damages with expensive repairs:

  1. Bent or snapped bike chain
  2. Bent chain rings
  3. Bent or snapped derailuer hanger
  4. Bent or snapped rear or front derailer
  5. Or worst, all of the above FAIL

So, please save yourself a long walk home or a wait after your Maui bike ride: Think before you shift those bike gears!!
