Rich, From personal experience.... There are 3 bike shops on Maui that rent road bikes. They are located in Kihei, Laheina and the area right by the airport. The rate is 50 bucks a day or $200 for the week. Most of the rental road bikes are aluminum though. I suggest that you call ahead and talk to each shop owner. West Maui Cycles in Lahaina http://www.westmauicycles.com/ Island Biker at the airport (Best bet for a steel bike) South Maui Bicycles, 1993 South Kihei Road # 5 , Kihei. 808) 874-0068 - This is next to Wailea.

Here is a good website as well. http://www.mauibicyclealliance.org/

I rented a Specialzed as that was the only bike available at the time.

Aloha and have fun.
