We got off the ferry and saw this place was rated highly on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed - fast service, well-organized, well-maintained bikes in great condition. My wife particularly liked her teal bike and basket. Very friendly, professional staff. Great location near the wharf.

They quoted me lower prices on the phone, and then tried to upsell our children on adult bicycles once we got there. Once our credit card was already charged, I confirmed that they had in fact picked out a bicycle that was too large for my small 10-year-old. When I told the girl behind the counter that we needed to... More

Hello Sting-a-Ling-01, Please accept my apology for the way you were treated at Young's and thank you for bringing this to my attention. I am sorry your transaction went the way it did and I assure you, that is not our intent. We want to fit all our customers to the right size bike and we do not try to... More

My son and I were outfitted with Cannondales, which were well maintained. Shocks on the seat posts made our Milestone-Polpis run to Sankaty Light downright pleasant. The staff were very helpful in setting us up, and when we returned a little early, took a bit off the rental fee. And they have roadside assistance. Can't beat all that, and will... More

Young's is advertised as a third-generation family business on Nantucket. If current day customer service is any indication, I can see why they've been successful for so long. Our experience was excellent at every step of the way - from the easy-to-use website to the rental and return processes. The staff we met were all friendly and efficient, and each... More

Originally wanted to rent mopeds, but weather was bad, so we stopped here for a rental car. Had no reservation but staff was very courteous and got us a sedan. Very polite and professional, would gladly stop here to do business if I get back to Nantucket again!

To start, I wanted to secure a rental online...this shop had the best site in my opinion. Upon my arrival there were 3-4 peeps that helped make the bike rental seamless. The bikes we had came with a bell, basket, and even a bungee cord (great for strapping a bag to back of bike landing pad type thing). I rented... More

Bringing a car over on a ferry to Nantucket costs over $400. When I tried to reserve a car rental on Nantucket online at Youngs, it stated online reservations require a 2 day minimum. We decided to "wing it" and try to get a rental once we arrived. When we went to Young's, (closest to the ferry) there was only... More

The staff got on our way quickly with hikes, helmets and locks. Reminded us of biking rules and etiquette. We did 27 miles and returned mid afternoon where we were once again greeted by the friendly staff. As we were gathering our things, the counter staff said they'd refund us $ since we didn't use the entire day rental, didn't... More

When family is visiting we rent from Young's. Young's is an institution, and family owned. They've been around for decades, family run, and have been the go-to bike shop on Nantucket because each year they invest in the newest models and have a huge selection. The entire staff is friendly and know their stuff which is important because if you're... More

Our 6 bikes were ready and waiting when we arrived. Great, helpful staff and very comfortable bikes for a group who hadn't done long bike hikes in years!
