Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What bike shops online offer free shipping to Hawaii?!

The only bike shop I've come across is BikeIsland.com

I've got my eye on a Fuji Feather for something basic and I dont believe BikeIsland.com carries completes. Even a lot of the websites that offer "Free Shipping" wont splurge to ship it island side.

Has anyone have any suggestions or knowledge of this?!

Big mahalos!

What island are you from? There are some bike shops that can order things for you without the extra cost of shipping.

LBS are good to stage off shipping, $8 for chain on amazon, to $9 for the same at LBS.

Amazon does free shipping, but I don't know about Hawaii.

Im on Oahu. A few of the bike shops i contacted dont charge you for shipping, however, the shipping fee is included in the purchase. But, i open for suggestions.

Mahalos!

Move from hawaii. I hated when I went there to see my aunt. It's all Japanese people and white people with lots of sand. There were only some good places to take my mountain bike too. I like my crate better.

Try check with Cyrus at the Kickstand, maybe he can help you out with something.

Trying to get anything shipped to Hawaii freaking expensive.

Are The Bike Shops still open or are the gone/under new name? They were my favorite when I lived on Oahu 1989-1994. *I* thought the best one was in Aiea. Dude, wanna stop and get a Zip Pack for me at Zippy's?

Maybe i'm crazy, but last i heard Fuji doesn't allow their dealers to ship whole bikes anywhere.

I'd check an LBS and see if they can order something for you.

"The Bike Shop" is still around. There's also McCully Bike, The Kickstand, Bikefactory, and Bikewerks. I stay away from the one that begins with "M" on Waialae (questionable service). Theres also IT&B. I frequent The Kickstand and McCully mostly.

Mmmm Zip Pack, had that with a side of chili and rice last night.
