We damaged the brakes on my wife's bike and needed a knowledgeable trustworthy shop. Sean helped us out and they completed the repair the same morning we dropped it off. Fast and reasonable repairs, we were very pleased!

My grandsons wanted to rent a surrey while in Galveston. After 15 minutes we were looking at our watch wondering how much time was left of the one hour of rental time. For 4 people it was $25 which I guess was worth it. Only...More

Ordered a bike from there. They said it would arrive in a few days however it took several weeks. Lots of excuses and lies from the owner. I won't spend another cent in this place.
