I found a new shop in The Woodlands, TX that just opened called Cycles TX. They carry a few brands that I have not seen in the Houston area before. I only ride mountain bikes so I am not sure what road brands they carry, but several of the road bikes were over 15k and one of them in the front window was around 26k . It also looks like they carry a full line of Enve products. I saw several Enve stems out on display and a lot of Enve boxes in the back. The shop is open but I don't think they have had their grand opening yet. They are across the street from Tinseltown in The Woodlands.
Fred, an employee at the shop, took me out to a local trail and let me demo a large Tallboy 2 Carbon and even swapped the wheels with a higher spec medium demo so I could try out the Enve XC wheel set. It was really cool that I could demo such a pricey bike on an actual trail instead of the usual parking lot shake down. The bike rode like a dream and I am considering retiring my Mach 429a.
Mountain Bike Brands & Models I Spotted on Floor:
Niner Bikes (Jet 9 RDO, Air 9 RDO, One 9 RDO)
Giant Bikes (Not sure but full suspension high and low end)
Surly Bikes (Krampus and Moonlanders)
Santa Cruz Bikes (650B Heckler, Carbon Tallboy 2's with Enve's, Juliana's, and a Carbon Highball. Also said they would have a Bronson and Solo "5010" coming in soon .
Also, I do not work for the shop if that was not already obvious.
