I bought one of their used rental bikes at a good price. The following year it had a shifting problem (while sitting for the winter). I brought it in for a tuneup and they adjusted the derailer for free, after recognizing me and the bike. They stand by their bikes and their work. Good honest, helpful people.

Martha's Bike is now my first stop on island for any bike repair. Greg and staff were friendly, informative, and super reasonable with my repair! They did a great job with fixing my bike and I plan to go back there with any more of my bike issues. Thank you for being a great island (family!) business.

My sister and I recently visiting Martha's Vineyard for the first time and we decided to leave the car behind so we could ride bikes around instead. I found Martha's Vineyard Bikes online and what a great place and fantastic deal!! It is super, super close to where the ferries drop passengers off in Vineyard Haven and the staff was super friendly. They quickly got us set up with bikes with baskets, helmets, a bike lock and a map. They made sure we knew how to get in touch with the shop if we needed anything, made sure we knew how to get to where we wanted to go and offered great suggestions for places to check out and routes to take. Overall this was a great value - renting two bikes for the day cost us less than it would have been to bring a car over on the ferry and riding around on a gorgeous day was the absolute best way to see the island! I highly recommend this bike shop for anyone wanting to rent bikes when visiting Martha's Vineyard.

We arrived on the Island after travelling from Europe for a family holiday during Illumination Week. Since we did not have a car and there were 5 of us we decided that renting bikes would be the best way to get around. We tried to rent bikes in advance from a place in Edgartown. The woman we spoke with seemed very vague and it took us ages to get the sizes and kinds worked out. We arrived on Friday, but on Sunday morning, we still had no bikes.
In the end, we never got our bikes from this place but did discover that it's a rather new shop on the Island AND that the owners adopted a name similar to the well-established rental place where we did get our bikes.
Fortunately for us, the "real McCoys" - Martha's Bike Rentals on Lagoon Pond Road in Vineyard Haven - were very professional. Surprisingly, they even gave us a hefty discount for our troubles - even though these troubles were caused by their upstart competitors and had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with them!
Martha's Bike Rentals delivered the bikes to us a few hours later, and they picked them up from our rental house in Oak Bluffs after we left.
We could easily bike to all the good beaches on our end of the Island. The "Jumping Bridge" was only a 15 minute bike ride away. One can take the bus to the beaches farther away (bikes can ride the bus too!).
Thanks to Martha's Bike Rentals we had a lovely time on Martha's Vineyard. To the kids' delight we even got a peak at Obama playing golf.

Our experience was pretty awful. Having promised to deliver kids bikes by the morning when we asked why they weren't here as promised we were told the delivery had already left and that we might get them by lunchtime - too late to go out for the day. The kids were pretty devastated that our plans were ruined but When I cancelled the guy on the phone Tony just said that was "sweet".
Amazing really

Terrific people (Greg, Matt) and good service. Walked right up with our family of 4 - immediately told our options. went inside - paid, came out and the bikes were getting ready for us - helmets, baskets, locks and all. Even provided special "went out of their way" service when I left something behind. I will be back!

Was told could only rent by the day ($35) and had to walk my bike back to get the helmet and another bike after the pedal fell off(!). I only biked several hours. They never did give me a lock for the bike. Not happy

We rented two bikes, the gentlemen were very helpful with giving directions and helping us understand the lay of the land. We started off on the trail and as I was climbing a hill, I changed gears and my chain popped off. I couldn't get the chain back on so we called the store and in just a few minutes Bruce came to our rescue and brought us a replacement bike. Super great guy! Very friendly and willing to go above and beyond. I would rent from them again, no doubt. Efficient and friendly.

We rented from them 2 days in a row. They were very friendly and helpful when it came to charting a route.

Bikes were in a great shape and they have baskets, locks, and helmets included in the price. They offer free roadside service and I used it one of the days when my chain slipped at the end of the day about a mile and half from the shop. One call and 10 minutes later I was brought a replacement bike and their appreciation I did not try and fix it myself.

$25 per bike per day but they have options if renting multiple days.

I can't say enough about this company. We ordered our bikes online a few weeks before our trip to the Vineyard. The owner called me a few days before our scheduled start date to confirm our reservation (1 mountain bike with a child seat on back and 1 mountain bike with an alleycat). The owner's son dropped off our bikes on time and was very helpful in setting them up for us. The helmet he had for our youngest (18 months) was a bit big, but everything else was perfect. The bikes performed great. The very next day we happened to see him driving by and he stopped and asked us how everything was working out. About 10 minutes later he showed up at our rental with a smaller childs helmet (yup, he obviously saw that the helmet we had was a bit big). It's been my experience that most businesses would not have gone out of their way the way that Martha's Bikes did. Bravo. We'll definitely be renting from them again.
