Good bike store to rent in West or South-Coast maui?

I looked online and found three bike stores that rent high end bikes but they all have horror stories! I am afraid to commit to any of them. Can anyone recommend a good shop?

The shops I found (each with some good reviews but ALL with multiple horror story reviews)
West Maui Cycles
Maui Cyclery
South Maui Cycles

Just got back from Maui and also rented from Boss Frogs in Kihei - had a Cannondale Super Six. Great folks and great riding bike. Had no problems at all.

Just for the record, Maui Cyclery is a great shop! Not sure what the online horror stories are but I live here! Old post but since there are so few in the Hawaii forum, I figure it was worth adding a sentence.

I would recommend Island Triathlon & Bike in Honolulu. Rented a BMC ALR and loved it.

i will revive this thread with the same question, adding Kona and Kauai. I'm planning to island hop and would like to rent a bike on all three islands. I have found a few mentioned above for Maui, plus Bike Works Kona and Big Island Bike Rentals; i have nothing yet for Kauai. any recs/experiences appreciated.

I live in Kona and can tell you that bike works is a great shop and they rent all kinds of road bikes. Ask for Vern, if he is working he is a great guy.
