Come visit Hilo Bike Hub and see why we have been voted best bike shop on the East side of the Big Island for over 15 years!
We carry a full line of Specialized and Cannondale mountain bikes and road bikes as well as Trek hybrid, road, comfort bikes, kids bikes, and BMX. Check out our popular Trek and Specialized hybrid bikes, Ellsworth US-handcrafted mountain bikes and BionX electric bike systems!
What differentiates Hilo Bike Hub from the rest? We understand the ruggedness of the Hawai'i Island terrain, the extreme diversity of our climate and what it does to our bicycles. The end result is building a bicycle that will meet and exceed the needs of our Big Island clientelle. For example, all of our adult bikes feature a pro-build assembly complete with waterproof lubrication of front and rear hubs, bottom bracket extraction and waterproof lubrication, as well as waterproof lubrication to all bolts. Full suspension bikes also receive lubrication and proper torque to all pivot bolts and linkage systems. Most bikes require between one and two hours for such an intense assembly, valued at $120. In addition, new bike sales include pro-fitting, adjusting bikes to the rider to maximize comfort as well as performance.
The Hilo Bike Hub would like to extend a huge MAHALO for voting us 'Best Bike Shop' by the Tribune Herald's Annual Best of East Hawai`i for 2015! The Hilo Bike Hub staff is super grateful to their loyal clientele for acknowledging them over 15 times as the Tribune Herald's Best Bike Shop of East Hawai`i. We will continue to provide top service, knowledge, and equipment to those who demand the best. Read more on the Tribune Herald website >
After twenty years of trials and tribulations, the Waiākea Forest Timber Management Area (a.k.a. the Kulani Trails) below Quarry Rd. off Stainback Hwy has formally been deemed an official trail system that is legally accessible to bicyclists!
You will be required to carry a permit to ride these trails. It can be acquired for FREE from the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) at 19 E. Kawili St. in Hilo or 66-1220A Lalamilo Rd. in Waimea. Ask for the Lower Waiākea Mountain Bicycle annual permit and trail map. Picking up permits will not only prevent fines, but the more people we have signing up for permits, the better chance we have to keep this good thing going!
Big thanks to the members of the Big Island Mountain Bike Association (BIMBA), Mauna Kea Recreation User’s Group, Chris Graper from the Hawaiʻi State Dept. of Forestry, Dennis Vierra from Nā AlaHele, and Chris Seymour who have been working hard to bring mountain biking on the Big Island to the next level! See you on the trails!
