    Moving to Maui Soon-What Type of Bike do You Recommend

    Greetings All!

    My wife and I are moving soon to Maui. I currently ride all types of terrain here in Western North Carolina. What type of bike (hardtail, full suspension, trail bike, etc.) would be best suited for MTB on Maui? I currently ride 29er hardtails for most riding here.

    Thanks in advance

    There are trails for all types of bikes here, so you're good whichever way you go. I have DH, trail and DJ bikes. Lots of 29ers here but I don't see a lot of SS bikes.

    Thanks for the info WDF

    I hoping my 29er hardtail can ride most of the trails on Maui. The YouTube videos of Makawao Forest trails look very similar to here in Western North Carolina-flowy rooty singletrack. What are your thoughts?

    Makawao forest is pretty much all up and then all down, but lots of guys riding ht 29ers there. Not any extreme elevation gains.
