2014 marks our 35th year in business. Bikesport is conveniently located near the center of Houston (1.5 miles East of the Galleria, a stone's throw from Greenway Plaza and on the fringes of River Oaks) Bikesport is well known for its friendly, knowledgeable staff and for having a really good selection of often-needed, hard to find small parts in stock. We have convenient hours and a large selection of clothing and accessories. We carry primarily road, mountain and specialty bikes and offer renowned service on all bike-store-quality bikes. Among the 6 of us on staff, we have over 110 years of experience in the bike industry. If you're looking for something other than the usual cookie cutter bike shop, stop by and give us a try.
And to those of you who have been supporting us for these 35 years, a huge THANK YOU!

Salsa! Adventure by Bike!
At Salsa, we believe a sense of adventure makes life better. The bicycle can be so much more than just a bike; it's a path to new places, new people, and amazing experiences.
We provide the bikes. You determine where they go, and where you go with them. Satisfy curiosity. Explore boundaries. Discover something great.
There are always a few bikes that need to find a new home. Here's a quick link to the bikes we have on sale. Please note that in-stock bikes show sale prices, out of stock bikes don't. Check back often to see what pops up. You never know, you just may find a bike you've been lusting after.

Today's Cycling Tip
Softer Is Usually Better – If you’re uncomfortable on your road bike, you might check the tire pressure. Today’s tires usually have recommended inflation ratings printed on the sidewalls. If you’re finding the ride rough, it could be because the tires have been inflated to the highest end of the scale. Unless you're a heavier rider, there's usually no need to pump your tires this hard. For example, you might be riding on 115psi. If that’s the case, try dropping the pressure about 10psi and see if your bike doesn’t ride more smoothly. And, don’t worry about riding with 105psi. That’ll work fine.
