In order to demo a bicycle at Specialized Houston, please have your ID and Credit Card ready. You will sign a liability waiver and must be approved for a credit card pre-authorization upon check out. A deposit may be required. Riders under the age of 18 must have a parent present to sign a liability waiver.
What to Bring
All demo bikes come stocked with flat or Shimano pedals. If you prefer to use your own pedals, bring them by and we will be happy to install them for you.
Be sure to bring your own helmet. All demo riders MUST wear a helmet!
Specialized has partnered with the greatest independent bicycle retailers in the country since 1974 and continues to do so - but as brick-and-mortar retail develops, the risks at retail get greater for small businesses - this is true everywhere but especially today, here in Houston. While the stakes get higher, there are some risks we can take, ourselves; allowing us to test opportunities and experience first-hand how to better serve our riders and local retailers, and support the growth of the cycling community nationwide.
With this, we have developed an exclusive Specialized Delivery and virtual consultation service here in Houston, where Specialized offers more than just our goods and services in a store. With a limited and curated on-hand inventory and a focus on blending digital and physical retail, we're excited to bring a new experience to Houston, where we're delivering transformative, inclusive, and rider-focused experiences, in order to faster support you - our riders.
