Giant is offering their Defy Advanced 2 at a price ($1,949) that other manufactures are unable to offer even a moderately equipped carbon frame. Don't let the affordable price make you skeptical though, this machine ticks all the boxes. A compliant frame that defies the roughest roads: check. Trickle down tech such as thru axles, flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless ready wheels and tires: triple check.

When looking for a new bike almost all riders are looking to check all of the boxes: comfort, handling, stiffness, weight, aesthetics, and of course price. When Giant was developing the line of 2017 TCR Advanced models they put all that on the board. We have brought in several models across the lineup to satiate the wants/needs of nearly every rider.

We have many great employees and supporters in the BW family. With Mother’s Day around the corner we feel it is important to highlight one of the most active employees we are lucky enough to have with us, Sarah Dougherty. Sarah, a wife and mother of two daughters, has made mountain biking a lifestyle that is weaved into fiber of her family's tartan.

Already an avid cyclist, Sarah introduced her two daughters Fiona (18) and Annabel...

Mountain bike technology has evolved rapidly over the years. Perhaps more so than any other style of cycling... With better suspensions, geometry and components, mountain bikes can open up an entirely new world of cycling. The best part, is that Texas offers up some of the best off-road riding in the nation.

Our Dirt Package includes a high quality Giant mountain bike, as well as all of the gear you'll need, at a discounted...

On June 3rd a special group of University of Texas students will embark on a trying journey, taking them from Texas to Alaska… all by bike. Keep in mind that most of the Texas 4000 team hasn’t been on a bike since their age was in the single digits and their training is on a truncated time table. The learning curve is steep and the effort is not to be taken lightly, but these students find their own ways of staying motivated and keep...

The Cervelo S3 Disc, may just be the tipping point in the disc brake vs. rim brake debate. It's an aerodynamic road bike that's lighter, stiffer, and faster than its rim braked predecessor.

That's incredible.

Not only do you get the increased stopping power and security of disc brakes, you no longer have to pay a penalty for...

For years, quality women's cycling apparel existed on the periphery of the market. It was something manufacturers could never seem to focus on. The promise of an untapped customer base, just out of reach. But who would be brave enough to go after it?

We heard all the rumors. We searched the entire internet for a supplier of women's clothing that was big enough to work for our brick and mortar locations, yet stylish enough to actually...

You may not remember this, but the Scott Foil made quite a splash at last years Paris-Roubaix, snagging victory by half a bike length to become the first “aero” road bike to win the prestigious one-day classic.

It was an important moment.

The common belief was that an aero bike would be too unforgiving, too stiff, too aggressive to handle the cobbled farm roads that comprise the Paris-Roubaix course. And If we’re being honest, we...

At Bicycle World, we believe that grass-roots involvement is paramount to our success.

Say you want a new bike. Something shiny and new. A no excuses, costs more than your first car, rocket ship. Problem is, your significant other isn’t signing off on anything until you get rid of your current ride.

Well… You’ve got a few options.

What can you say about the Cervelo P3? If you’re reading this, no doubt you’re familiar with its place at the top of the tri-bike bell curve. The P3 is ubiquitous in the multi-sport world. It’s the benchmark... Not the fanciest, nor the lightest, yet certainly one of the best.

Triathlon is a heavily marketed sport and tri-bikes,...

While you probably know that Scott makes one heck of a bicycle, you may not be aware of Scott’s high quality in-line helmets, clothing and shoes. We’ve been receiving many of these items lately, and thought that we’d highlight one of the best selling products in their line up, the $130.00 Road Comp Boa. Our customers purchase the heck out of this shoe for many reasons. Namely, the fact that you can get a BOA closure system for $130. We love...

There’s this special little loop that heads southeast from Austin, and covers the 70ish miles to Lockhart and back. It’s too gnarly for my 23c tire road bike. There’s too much gravel. Too many loose dogs that chase you down the carpet bombed roads. It always too hot. Too cold. Too windy.

Too everything.

Every time my little group of friends ride it, we stop halfway to eat too much Black’s BBQ.

These are the rides that the...

We'd like to welcome our new 2017 Bicycle World Ambassadors to the team! Keep an eye out for these friendly faces at your next race or local event.

Question.

When’s the last time you replaced the chain on your bike?

Follow up question.

How’s your shifting?

Replacing a bike chain is one of the most commonly ignored bits of maintenance we see. It’s a shame, really. Cassettes these days can easily cost upwards of $200, and an over worn chain does a fantastic job of wreaking havoc on this expensive piece of equipment.

We’ve been shouting about the value of Giant bikes for a long time now, astonished by the quality of each build, and perplexed by those who refuse to recognize this. With each consecutive model year, we find more reason to stand behind Giant bikes. In 2016, the stock carbon wheels on the TCR Advanced Pro 1 blew us away. This year, Giant’s Defy Advanced 1 has us emailing our rep to confirm retail prices. Surely, there’s a mistake…

This year’s Ironman World Championships marked the release of Cervelo’s flagship triathlon bike, the P5X. It’s an insane, ambitious, supercar of a bicycle that’s been polarizing both our shop staff and customers since it’s release. We can understand that. With two models coming in at approx. 11k and 15k, the price tag alone is an issue.

And depending on...

Jim Felt started his storied career making one off tri bikes for select clients in the motorcross industry, eventually gaining enough of a following to catch the eye of Easton Sports.

I can still remember the first time I rode a Scott Scale. It was at the Interbike Outdoor demo in 2009. Or was it 2008? The shop I was working for at the time wasn’t a Scott dealer, but everyone of us wanted to try this mountain bike that was supposed to weigh in at just over 16 lbs. That seemed unfathomable to us.

Yet there it was. An astonishingly light bike...

We love so much about LIV Cycling, their refined aesthetic has been a breath of fresh air in this world of black & red or red & black everything. With a fantastic part spec, proven geometry and awesome value, this new Avail Advanced 1 has jumped straight to the top of our "want" list.

The Avail line fits our female customers comfortably, it offers a brilliant parts spec (see the .pdf below) and the gold paint highlights ensures...

Marie Marvingt is better than you. She’s better than all of us. Even if your name happens to be Tim Cook and you’re reading this on a private jet being fed grapes by robots, you’ve lost.

Equipping your bike with lights is one of the simplest, most effective ways to increase your visibility and safety on the road. And not only at night, we highly recommend lights during daylight hours as well.

There are many, many companies who make bike...

Bikes come in all shapes and sizes. Perhaps too many… The industry is full of niche markets in a never-ending pursuit to outfox their competition. Companies put their collective heads down and innovate, coming out with new standards, carbon fiber bits and titanium bottle cage screws on the regular. Wind tunnels are built. Skinsuits are created from 3D body scans and everything is guaranteed to save you X over a distance of Y.

It seems contrived to say, but Scott 27.5” Plus bikes have to be ridden to be believed. It’s almost unimaginable that and extra half inch of tire width would make such a drastic difference, but the 2.8” tires of the Scott Scale 710 Plus have amazing effects on both traction and control. On the rocky trails of Texas, this bike is a game changer.

At first glance, the big tires of the 710 plus seem to be unwieldy. Slow… But that’s...

The weight.

It was only last year that the young, talented Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin shocked the world at the Vuelta Espana, weathering attack after attack to hang on to the red jersey for weeks, only to lose it on the penultimate day of the three-week event.

I remember the first time I saw Fiona Dougherty race quite clearly.

She was chasing Samantha Runnels, who was in the lead. Just chasing, chasing, chasing... Endlessly, aggressively pursuing her prey. The...

The Felt Z5 and it’s sister, the ZW5, are two of our most popular road bikes for many reasons. The carbon frame is lightweight. The Shimano 105 drivetrain is a workhorse, that will provide years of crisp shifting. The paint and finish of both bikes are superb. But most of all, these Z series bikes just seem to fit our customers better. In a sport where comfort often translates into speed, this is important.

Comfort is motivation to...

Alright, we’ll go ahead and say it, trainer workouts are no fun. In fact, they’re soul sucking endeavors that are not only hard on you, but also hard on your equipment. An hour on the trainer is a test of will power, and there are always so many little voices telling you to just stop and get off the bike. We can relate.

The thing is, with the Wahoo KICKR that view of trainer workouts may be a bit antiquated. While the KICKR can’t...

Kids bikes are always a challenge. Parents have to walk the razors edge, using advanced algorithms to forecast height and gauge long term interest before investing in something as expensive as a nice bike. We understand.

Breaking into the over-saturated wheel business is a tricky, tricky thing. Somehow, you’ve got to make yourself known. You’ve got to separate yourself from the hundreds of wheel vendors buying premade products from overseas and simply plastering their logo on. There’s a lot of white noise down at the bottom. Innovation has been forsaken, and always on sale products are the new normal. As cyclists and retailers, that terrifies...

For the uninitiated, getting started in the world of off-road riding can be an intimidating endeavor. Even seasoned roadies and triathletes are often perplexed by the myriad of terms and offerings available.

We’ll be the first to admit that it can be overwhelming at first glance....
