Are you looking for a purpose-built bike build for your Big Island adventures? To get what you need, just head on over to the Hilo Bike Hub. Well-known as the place to go for top-notch bicycles for all ages, this Hilo shop goes above and beyond in getting everyone well equipped for their rides. Then, they stand by as needed to offer repair services and any other support you need along the way.
Over the past 25 years, the team has learned just what bikes thrive in the rugged island environment. Through that process, they’ve weeded out the low performers, only ending up with top-notch bikes in their inventory. So, whenever you come by, you can trust that they have the bicycles that will stay in great condition through all your travels. Brands they carry include Cannondale, Trek, Precaliber, GT Bicycles, and Specialized.
They have bikes for the roads, mountain trails, and simply cruising around town. If you prefer a little extra oomph on your rides, they even have electric bikes galore. They’re happy to help you figure out what bikes to get, too. Many of their models will work well for multi-purpose rides, like casually cycling around town before hitting the most challenging trails.
To help you figure out the best bike for your needs, their staff members will ask a series of questions about your favorite island activities. Then, they will point you in the right direction of the best bike models for you. Not sure if a particular bike is right for you? That’s okay! They offer test rides in the parking lot. Even kids can get in on the fun and try out several bikes before settling on their favorite.
After that, they’ll help you customize your selected bike if so desired. They offer many upgrades for the brakes, cranks, forks, seats, pedals, and more. They’re even happy to paint your parts custom colors if you wish. Once you dial in your perfect build, they’ll get to work bringing it to life. Most builds take at least two hours to perfect, although it could take longer if you need custom parts, paint, and the like.
After you get the bike of your dreams, you’re welcome to come back for service at any time. Even if you didn’t buy your bike from their shop, they’ll perform all the services needed to keep your riding machine in great condition. From chain and tire changes to full tune-ups and upgrades, they can do it all. If you’re not sure just when to bring your bike in, ask them to draw up a maintenance schedule based on your regular activities. Mountain bikes typically need service more than beachside cruisers, but it also comes down to how often you ride.
Whether you’re getting a new bike or coming in for service, don’t forget to check out the latest parts, gear, and other accessories on the shelves. They often get new helmets, tires, and everything in between, giving you even more gear options for your rides. Remember to get a water bottle or two as well, so you can stay well hydrated on your travels. If you’re not sure what’s the best of the best, just ask and the team will point you in the right direction.
