    Maui FR/DH trails/bike rental

    So I'm in maui for the next week and it turns out I'll have more free time than I thought I would, does anyone know of any good spots to rent bikes other than island biker? Any choice trails on maui?

    I wasn't really planning on getting any riding in on this trip but if I've got the opportunity I can't pass it up. Obviously I'd rather it be more freeride/DH oriented but the views are nice enough that I'd be happy just to get some trail time in.

    I'm also pretty much stuck on the island so I know I might be outta luck, seems like any scene here would be fairly small.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who's got some advice.

    Yeah, its not that I won't go, surfing's already part of the plan and I'm renting a board through the place I'm taking lessons

    That shop that RN recommended has kona DH and FR rigs for $70 a day, not bad at all compared to the $50 for a specialized HT at the other shop.

    Yeah, I'm gonna try to do both though- I'm a hardened mountain person. I like the beach but I can only take it so long, and staring at all the killer forests and peaks... Well I can only take that so long without getting on it.


    The true waste of time here is me on a computer, so I'm outta here.




    Thanks for all the help dudes.

    renting bikes to people and then giving them directions to secret trails that the person renting the bikes has not helped build and maintain?

    hurry up and go ride them before they get destroyed again....

    The trails i'm talking about are far from secret and are the mainstay of the shop. Crater will be happy to set up with the goods and even hook you up with local riders. Very cool shop and riders.

    you got it wrong.
    posting this stuff on the internet is not helping.

    Wow, so your local shop is giving away your secret trails and they don't help build or maintain. That really sucks! sorry i mentioned it.

    I'm just a dude trying to get some riding in.


    Either way it looks like there's not much point renting a bike, gov't site says there are safety hazards.

    Oh well, I'm still on for surfing and fishing and such. I know the bottlerocket will be there when I get home.

    soon a real dh shop will be open on the w.side.

    the soon 2b owner has built many of the trails on this side.

    A shop for the riders, by the riders, supporting the riders.

    looking forward.>

    trail destroyers increase the cringe factor...what foks.

    When a shop rents you a bike and says, go ride xyz and here is how you get there, that's what you are going to do, no one said this is secret keep it quiet, actually it was just the opposite. You need to take up your problem/s with Crater not obscure internet characters. And if you were a little smarter you would have just let this thread die or discredited it. Now everyone going to Maui is going to want to find this secret, illegal trail. For all anyone knew before I was just stoked on the road down from Haleakala. .

    All the best Maui trials were burned up in a forest fire started by a hiker so it's really not worth traveling there to ride.

    let it die already

    can I please get a mod to deep six this whole thread?

    It has gotten very un-dude and does not need to be searchable.
