I'll be in Hawaii later this week and thought it might be fun to find a jersey from a local shop to bring home. Any leads are most appreciated!
An HBL jersey may be your best choice
The shops and the bikes they sell on Oahu for background are
The Bike Shop
Their main bikes are Specialized. Good selection of accessaries. Probably the better prices.
10% military discount
Bike Factory has a good selection of Treks and accessaries
Boca is an off shoot of Bike Factory, ½ block away and sells some used bikes.
Not much selection but he could get lucky in finding the right used bike for a lower price.
Eki Cyclery mostly has Raleigh and Schwinn - long family history, Jay and Jayne Kim now run the shop. They sell mostly town, easy riding bikes but you can special order other Raleighs.
Momentum MultiSport Hawaii is a brand new store. I know one of their mechanics who does know his stuff from a prior store that closed down. Good guy and store looks like it is probably good.
Island Triathlon & Bike (ITB) is mostly road and tri bikes. Small shop, so in store selection is smaller. Owner has been thinking of retiring and has asked if I want to buy the shop twice now.
McCully Bike is an overall sporting goods store with bikes being a small part of their business. So less experienced sales people. A mix of lower and mid-range bikes. Good prices for bikes and accessories. Bikes are in the very back of the store.
For widest selection high to low end bikes:
The Bike Shop
For high end bikes mostly road and tri:
Momentum MultiSport Hawaii
Island Triathlon & Bike
For town or mid/lower end bikes:

Thanks for this feedback, I'm actually in HI now and got to stop by the HBL offices, what wonderful people! Unfortunately didn't have any large jerseys, but hopefully later this summer. Really, really nice folks. I'm now in Kauai and will be stopping by Kauai Cycle in Kapaa. They appear to have a nice jersey graphic and hopefully one in large!
