I have a bike that I got from Fleetwood's Kit Kat and it is the coolest bike ever because I got to customize it exactly how I wanted it. ALL of the people at the store are super friendly and helpful. It's the coolest bike shop I've ever been in! YAY Fleetwood!
Best New Bike Shop - 2009
Fleetwood's Kit Kat - CLOSED
When owner Fleetwood Hicks and operations director Harvey Herr opened Fleetwood's Kit Kat across the street from SMU in February, business was expectedly slow. But as spring came and word-of-mouth spread, the two knew the beginning of something special was afoot. Specializing only in cruiser bikes, which Herr calls "the ultimate urban bike," Fleetwood's made a breakthrough when they started mixing parts, allowing customers to fully customize their bikes. And for those looking to rent a bike for a day on the Katy Trail, they offer rentals at only $15 for the first hour and $5 for each additional hour. Hicks claims he's already one of the largest cruiser dealers in the Southwest, and with a new Web site on the way, he'll be selling bikes nationwide by the end of the year.
