Welcome to the Hilo Bike Hub Website!

Aloha mai Kāua e ka cycling fanatic, 

Mahalo to everyone who has supported our store-and 2024 is the beginning of our 31st year serving the mokupuni o Hawaiʻi! We greatly appreciate all of our clientele for your patience during the last three years of challenging supply chain issues and limited hours (we are still closed on weekends). Our staffing issues from 2023 have now stabilized, and our tech support center is back in full motion, with most repairs being completed within 24-48 hours. We are still closed on weekends, but have been able to be open most state holidays, which usually fall on week days. This allows our working communities the opportunity to stop by for most of their bicycling needs.

Our store hours are Monday -Wednesday-Friday 9 to 4:30, and Tuesday and Thursdays 10-4:30. We are closed on major holidays such as Memorial Day, Forth of July, Labor day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. We have been remaing open on most state holidays, but please call in if you have any questions.

So what's new? Lots of new bikes, electric assist bicycles and parts. We are currently carrying a full selection of Specialized, Trek and Cannondale mountain bikes, the new electric bikes, as well as comfort bikes and kids bikes. Road bikes have finally arrived, and we have our largest selection in more than 3 years!

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 clientele. 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. New bikes receive one year of free servicing.

 It takes a very strong community to stay committed and focused to make it through a pandemic, and our small town of Hilo has done just that! I am so proud of my workforce being diligent and committed to give you our best. Mahalo nui loa!

So come and visit Hilo Bike Hub and help us celebrate our 31th anniversary, and see why we have been voted best bike shop on the East side of the Big Island for over 24 years (2023)!


E-bike statement

 Hilo Bike Hub Statement on E-bicycles

In the E-bike world, torque (rotational force) is measured in newton-meters, while power is measured in watts. Torque is what is most important due to our island environment-going up hills. And since we are either going uphill or downhill, torque is the most relevant feature. Most e-bikes have around 50 to 60 nm (newton meters) of torque, while others deliver 80-85 nm of torque. The more newton meters of torque your motor can produce, the less hard your legs have to work to turn the pedals on your bike.

Furthermore, We have chosen the most durable, product tested e-bikes on the planet. Between Cannondale, Trek and Specialized bicycle companies, These three brands have a combined over 120 years of manufacturing experience. Yes, you do pay more for this experience, however you will own a significantly safer, more durable and easily serviceable bicycle than the fly-by-night ebikes brands that are popping up everywhere, especially in garages and on the internet. Those new brands are great at advertising, but when it comes down to who makes a more durable, dependable and more serviceable bicycle, our bikes put the little inexperienced newbies to shame. So why throw away your money on the cheap stuff, it will only end up in our landfill.

We Did It! Ke Ala o Kūlanihākoʻi Mountain Bike Park is now official!

Hūlō!!!  After twenty-five years of trials and tribulations, the Ke Ala o Kūlanihākoʻi (a.k.a. the Kulani Trails) is now an official Hawaiʻi State Nā Ala Hele trail system trail, designed for the mountain bicycling experience!

We are no longer required to carry a user permit while riding these trails. A trail map will soon be made available to download, and get you out to this amazing mountain biking trail system.

Big thanks to the members of the Big Island Mountain Bike Association (BIMBA), Jackson Bauer from Hawaiʻi state Nā Ala Hele trail system, the Hawaiʻi Island Nā Ala Hele trail council (voted unanimously for this trail system) , Mauna Kea Recreation User’s Group, Chris Graper from the Hawaiʻi State Dept. of Forestry, Dennis Vierra from Nā Ala Hele, and Chris Seymour, who is also on the Nā Ala Hele trail council. It takes an army working together to bring mountain biking on the Big Island to the next level! See you on the trails!
