Not Maui Mountain Biking! The Red Bull Monserrate Devotees Bike Race

James Boote

Ever experienced a vacation cycling Maui or mountain biking the trails of Haleakala? We like all road and mountain biking, regardless it being mountain biking on West Maui in the abandoned cane fields, a crazed Haleakala bike ride down the Skyline trail or other mountain bike rides from distant parts of the world! As most of you know, Red Bull sponsors a mountain bike team and is highly active promoting mountain biking around the world. Read the recap and watch the The Red Bull team bike video capturing the excitement and thrills from their recent stairway bicycle race in South America.

Completed in just under four and a half minutes, the 2.2 kilometer bike race took place in Bogotá Columbia on the 11th of May, 2012, claiming the Guinness World Record for longest stairway downhill bicycle race. Watch the Red Bull riders in compete in the Red Bull RED BULL Devotos de Monserrate 2012 official video:

Not up for the Red Bull Monserrate Mountain Bike races? Or, vacationing on Maui and don't think you would enjoy an organized Haleakala bike ride? Instead, want to rent a mountain bike to ride down the backside of the volcano at your own pace? We have you covered for all your mountain bike riding on Maui! We offer mountain bike rentals, including the Stumpjumper FXR mountain bike or the Specialized HT 29'er. Don't risk your flesh to the red dirt and lava rock cinders on a Haleakala bike ride! The trails in Poli Poli and on Haleakala can be slippery and you won't want risk wasting days of your Maui vacation healing after a crash. Our family owned and operated Maui bike shop, West Maui Cycles in Lahaina, stocks mountain bike gear for all the mountain bike rides on Maui! And, we're alway happy to share our local information about the best local Maui mountain bike trails!

Hey, Sexy Lady... Even the XTerra crew got into Gangnam video mania! While always a busy time for those tireless organizers who create the XTerra World Championship and the participating athletes competing for the $20K prize, they couldn't resist the chance to shoot a fun video at Xterra Maui. Watch some of the athletes and crew while they were here on Maui at XTerra. Who would have thought Gangnam Style dancing would happen on the Razor Ridge section of the XTerra bike course? Or, the XTerra swimming course at DT Flemming beach? I know, we didn't either! You need to watch it to believe it!

YOU GOTTA SEE THIS! Watch the XTerra Gangnam Style Video on Maui:

Early Birds Going After the Same Worm Mountain Bike Video

My head is still brimming with all the info about the new bikes and bike gear after returning from the Specialized bicycle dealers preview event in Utah last week. Specialized is certainly not resting on laurels when it comes to mountain biking innovation on their StumpJumper mountain bikes! While the Specialized StumpJumper has already enjoyed 30 years as a leading mountain bike, Specialized continues buildling upon the rich history with the latest mountain bike technology. Our performance mountain bike rentals include the full suspension Specialized Stumpjumper FSR and the Specialized StumpJumper Comp 29'er Hardtail. For 2013, Specialized kept to their StumpJumper mountain bike traditions by introducing new bikes and including innovative enhancements to the existing models!

maui-xterra-world-championship-at-kapalua-conan-contrad-stoltz.jpg

Specialized made almost every model of their StumpJumper mountain bike available for the dealers to get acquainted with and experience demo rides during heir annual bike dealer event at Snowbird. There were plenty of Specialized StumpJumper Expert Carbon mountain bikes on hand, some equipped with 26 in wheels. Thats right, one of the options some riders will need to decide is whether to buy their bike equipped with 29 inch wheels or use the 26 inch wheels. That could be a tough choice to make! Either way, if you are thinking about buying a mountain bike, you couldn’t make a better decision than buying a Specialized mountain bike!

To help you decide on your wheel size and get aquainted with the StumpJumper FSR, check out the Specialized bike video where team riders Brad ‘The Hair’ Benedict climbs aboard a 2013 Specialized StumpJumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO 29 and Curtis ‘The American Dream’ Keene takes a mountain bike ride aboard the 2013 Specialized StumpJumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO 26. As you’ll see in this fun short 3 min 30 sec video, both riders are early birds out to catch the same worm:

Thanks to VitalMTBVideos for creating the awesome mountain bike video!

Whats the verdict? Do you think you would prefer a bike ride down Haleakala skyline trail on a StumpJumper equipped with 26 in wheels or 29 in wheels? Use the comments below to share your preference. Either way, head over to West Maui Cycles Lahaina bike shop for insightful bicycle buying advice and tips to help make an informed bicycle purchase decision.

3 Bike Repair Videos For Those Unlikely Maui Bike Rental Fixes

James Boote

Of course we hope you won’t have any mechanical breakdowns when you rent a bike on Maui. However, as every cyclist knows, bike flats and chain drops are a fact of life! If you do any amount of bike riding, you already accept flats as all in a ‘days ride’. Still, if you encounter a flat while you are riding on Maui, we thought you would want to know how to fix a flat. Since Specialized did such a great job of producing these bike repair videos, we’ll share here so you'll get back to your Maui cycling vacation faster:

How to Repair a Bike Flat demonstrated in this 4:35 minute bike repair video:


Even the best riders can execute a poor change of gears when climbing a hill or not getting into the right gear before a long downhill (like the Haleakala bike ride). So you'll know what to do in the unlikely event you drop a bike chain during your Maui cycling vacation, watch this short, just over a minute, bike repair video demonstrating three methods of How to Fix a Dropped Chain (no oily hands necessary on the first two methods!):


Of course, all of our Maui bike rentals are lubricated before and after each bicycle rental. But, if you rent a bike for a few days or a week and do a decent amount of riding each day or if you are mountain biking on Maui, you'll want to lubricate your chain without needing to return to the West Maui Cycles bike shop. Before you head out, ask us what type of chain lubricant your rental bike requires, and we'll set you with a small amount you'll need for your bike riding vacation on Maui. First, watch this short 1:27 minute video so you'll know How to Lubricate a Bike Chain:


Ready to plan a Maui cycling vacation and reserve a high performance road bike rental such as the Specialized Roubaix or a Specialized 29'er Hardtail mountain bike rental? Even if you are just looking for a cruiser bike to enjoy exploring Lahaina or west Maui, head over to the only Lahaina bike shop, West Maui Cycles to pick up a Maui rental bike.
