    Favorite Bike Shops
    Hello Texans,

    I'm trying to compile a list of favored bike shops in a few TX cities and was hoping you all can help. The list will be given to our Rep who will be visiting the Southwest.

    I need shop info for Dallas/FW, San Antonio, and Austin. If you have other cities/shops you prefer I'd like to hear them. I hope you can help.

    Thanks,

    Pat

    Don't forget Houston! Only the largest city in TX...

    I like Sugar Cycles - they've taken great care of me lately.

    In Houston, I like West End Bikes. Danial Boone is a neat shop too. I'm not a big fan of the chain bike stores, like Performance or Bike Barn.

    I just bought from Bicycles Inc in Hurst last night. I don't know much about mountain bikes but I liked them.

    Not a small bike shop like others stated, but the group at Sun and Ski in Katy are awesome.

    For me, sometimes the shop, as a whole, isn't great but, some of their employees make it a great experience!! Casey at Bicycle World in West Houston is a great resource and always willing to chat and help out. Another great thing, he rides, a lot!!! I see him pretty regularly on the local trails. Nice to stop and chat with someone who you can look to for help and advice!!

    My two cents!!

    Agreed, Kyle is a big help! I also enjoy the bike and accessory selection at West End. Watch out for their shop cat though, all sweet and nice until you pick her up...:)

    Bike Barn in the village area has been great since they moved too.
