Ham Cycles

A history lesson.

What began as the first fixed gear shop in Houston, and then morphed into Bici (a boutique showroom), Ham Cycles started where all bike shops should, on the bike. Ham Cycles was originally formed just to show an appreciation to bikes on the internet, expanded into a group of friends that enjoyed riding bikes together, and as the group became more invested into riding, the more the name spread. Ham Cycles has expanded into an apparel line, an MS150 team, a race team, and the “go-to” hosts for non-sanctioned cycling events in Texas. As a team without a bike shop to call our own, we adopted the shop formerly known as Bici as ours and vice versa, so once the former owner was ready to move onto new things, it just made sense for us to take it over, and it was already a home base of sorts for us.

Wolf Tooth

We are a group of hardcore cyclists that found ourselves spending a lot of time talking about bike components.  Like most racers we were always looking for new products that could make our bikes lighter, faster, or more reliable.  Since we all come from engineering and manufacturing backgrounds our conversations often focused on how we could make the products on the market today even better.  The company was founded to design and manufacture precision cycling products that emphasize function, performance, and reliability to meet the needs of fellow racers and riders.

HiFi Wheels

HiFi designs top-performing, ultra-sexy yet affordable road, mountain bike and ’cross wheels for more inspired riding. Our durable, hand-built wheels can take punishment and help you to dish it out.

As passionate road and off-road riders and racers, we’ve ridden all kinds of wheels—from kick ass to downright crappy—over the years. And we hated the fact that decent wheels increasingly require a payment plan. So we started the HiFi revolution: wheels that perform incredibly, look awesome and cost less.

West End Bicycles

Upon graduation from college and working for a European bicycle importer in Tallahassee, Florida I relocated to Houston, Texas to work with Joy Boone of Daniel Boone Cycles.  Joy was a pleasure and inspiration.  After Daniel Boones I worked for Campagnolo USA until they relocated to New Jersey.  Then at Romic Cycles a local bicycle frame builder, I learned to build wheels and assemble bikes. With this knowledge and experience I felt confident that it was time to open my own shop.  In 1985 I found a small house to rent on Washington Avenue near Memorial Park and opened West End Bicycles.  Within two years we had outgrown the small house and bought an abandoned warehouse nearby that was for sale.  It has been thirtyt years since opening West End Bicycles and I’ve seen the shop grow from a one-man operation to ten full time employees.  We have three master mechanics, three sales associates, two fitters and one assembler.  My greatest joy is derived from introducing new cyclist to the sport of cycling.
