Blue Line Bike Lab, pretty much the best bike shop ever.
Wait, what? Blue Line Bike Lab is now a Giant dealer!
We've been selling bikes here in Houston out of our Heights location for eighteen years, and in all that time we've never sold one of the "Big 3" brands. We've built our business by building our own brand, concentrating on hard work, stellar customer service, and partnerships with smaller brands that offer quality products without being household names. Well, that's all changing starting right now- we're keeping the hard work and the awesome service, but we're finally adding a powerhouse vendor to our bike line-up and that brand is Giant! Giant Bicycles has long been one of cycling's main catalysts for change- Giant introduced lighter, stronger aluminum frames at a time when the industry standard was steel, and then they were the first to make carbon fiber bikes widely available to the world. Giant defined the look and feel of modern road racing bikes with Compact Road technology and revolutionized off-road performance bikes with Maestro Suspension. In short, Giant bicycles are industry leaders in technology and value, and we think that they're going to be the perfect complement to our laid-back vibe and further solidify our position as the best bike shop in Houston. Swing by and see if we have the perfect new Giant for you!
We Have E-Bikes, and They're Awesome!
We're proud to be partnered with Houston's own Euphree Bikes to offer the best bang-for-your-buck Class 3 electric bikes that the market has to offer. The Euphree City Robin X features a unisex step-through frame, a genuine Bafang 500 watt hub drive motor and loads of standard add-ons like an integrated rear rack, front and rear light systems, and a high-end suspension seat post to get you out cruising in style, all at a fraction of the cost of our competitor's bikes. We keep loads of them in stock and they're all charged up and ready for a test drive, so drop on by and swing your leg over one and we'll get you out on a test drive today!
Pit Viper is here to party.
So, where’s the party at? It’s anywhere. It’s a mindset. It’s an “everyone come along”, “let’s have a good time”, “we take care of each other” attitude that encourages you to fly your flag and share the stage with other people that fly theirs. We call these people Key Players. Big deal if you didn’t “make varsity,” so what if you weren’t “prom royalty,” who cares that you don’t “own a toothbrush”. Key Players come from all backgrounds to take life by the horns, bring home the bacon, throw you a curveball, put all their eggs in one basket, tickle your funny bone, ham it up, break the ice and the glass ceiling, and always lay out the welcome mat.
Whatever your definition of party, that is where Pit Viper aims to be.
