    Good job! New Shop in The Woodlands/Houston called Cycles TX (Santa Cruz, Niner, Giant, Surly)

    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.

    Picture of the Tallboy I demoed with the swapped Enve wheel set.

    Cycles TX is supposed to be doing a demo this weekend at Flintridge on Sat 10/5 and then a demo on Sunday 10/6 at Huntsville. I think they will be out from 8am-12pm. Demos will be Santa Cruz and Surly. Might want to call to confirm but I heard that was the plan.

    I checked this place out last night. Super helpful and friendly. I'm getting into my first FS and Fred actually took the time to set the suspension for my weight so I could get the right feeling for the bike. Awesome, great experience.

    Good God, what bike was 26k???
    When I'm not riding I help beginner mountain bikers learn new skills at Texas Mountain Bike Trails.
