West End Bicycles

With its unassuming gray facade and trademark, “Frank the Cat” mascot illustration, West End Bicycles communicates pretty quickly that it’s not some fancy-schmancy fixie shop, but rather a casual, reliable purveyor of bikes, bike accessories, and, more recently, running strollers, to the Heights and greater Houston community. If you’re not looking to make a full investment in a bike or you already have elsewhere, that’s cool, too; West End Bicycles also offers daily, weekly, and monthly bike rentals as well as a full range of repair and maintenance services.
