Fleetwood’s Kit Kat

A couple of months ago, my family and I took a wrong turn while tooling around Dallas. It was one of the best mistakes ever made, because we ran across one of the coolest bike shops in Dallas, Fleetwood’s Kit Kat.

However, it’s not a typical bike shop. It’s more of a bike boutique, specializing in customized comfort bikes for the casual rider. You’re not going to find the latest in the lightest road bikes, or the best handling suspension mountain bikes. Instead, you’re going to find a unique array of rides, from off-the-shelf classics to made-to-order, custom built & painted cruisers.

The owner, Fleetwood Hicks, is one of the friendliest guys you’d ever meet and is more than helpful when it comes to deciding what bike is right for you. Fleetwood also hosts a number of group rides from his shop that go down the Katy Trail, through uptown Dallas.

My wife, Wendy Woodruff-Wezensky, has worked with Fleetwood and took some amazing shots of his shop along with some of his cooler bikes. You can find some of those shots in her Fleetwood Flickr Set. It’s obvious that Fleetwood’s Kit Kat is a fun, laid-back environment that supports creativity and culture. I love it because it’s bringing cycling to the masses – even those who wouldn’t typically get on a bike.

If you want to know more, here is a channel 33 news report on his shop.
