Readers' Choice: READERS' CHOICE: Blue Line Bike Labs

Nestled just outside Memorial Park on a quiet neighborhood street, West End Bicycles is one of the city's oldest bike shops, and it's still the best. It started as a mountain-bike shop, and though it offers much more, including an impressive selection of Dutch-style cruiser bikes, the muddy buddy ethos remains. The staffers are patient and friendly, and accommodating to riders of all stripes and persuasions. They also sell a ton of gear and add-ons, including tongue-in-cheek items like flash cages for your bike frame. And if you're not in the market for a new set of wheels, the shop is still worth checking out anyway thanks to the large museum-like display of antique bikes, none of which the owner is willing to part with.

Wait a minute. How come West End won the award but at the bottom it says that Blue Line was the reader's choice? What's the point in voting if HP just picks whoever they feel like even if it's not who the readers voted for? It seems like the best one would actually be the one that the people thought was the best, but apparently that's not how HP rolls. Just one more reason not to trust the Press...



Boone's is better. And is actually starting Houston's Bike Museum with part of their collection. Check 'em out
