    Need advice on my planned vist to Maui

    Hey All,

    I'm planning to visit Maui in December and I would like to get in a bit of mountain biking. I'm having problems finding a full suspension bike that would fit me (I'm 5'2"). I've checked with Crater Cycles and Haleakala bikes. Seems all that will fit is a hardtail. Am I missing any other possible rental places?

    If all I can find is a hard tail, would I be hating life it I tried the downhill...Skyline-Mamane?
    I'm a strong intermediate, but I usually ride a full suspension with 5 1/2 " of travel.

    Thanks for any advice.

    I've seen plenty of worn out people who rode hardtails from the summit.Check out West Maui cycles they rent Giant trances.Don't forget to ride Makawao forest reserve.There's something for everyone there.There are lots of trails there so it helps to follow someone who knows the best routs.

    Thanks Huck for the advice. West Maui has an x-small trance which might work for me.
