    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

    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.

    Cycle Logic or RideAway (off 1604) would be my choices.

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

    I've heard a lot about the place, never been there. thinking about getting a bike for my gf so we could ride along terry hershey park, when is the good time to get some steal deal ? do bike shop usually clear out their inventory like ...car dealer ?

    I've been to sun ski sport on Katy. nice shop, got some great help.

    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.
