About Us

Welcome to Tailwind Bicycles, Kingwood’s bike shop. We work hard to make this already impressive community even better by providing world-class customer service and knowledge to help ensure everyone we come in contact with has the best possible experience.

We are located at 2714 West Lake Houston Parkway in Kingwood Texas (right next to ACE Hardware). Like many businesses affected by the devastation of hurricane Harvey our shop ended with 18” of water and had to be 90% reconstructed.  Unlike many businesses though we were still under construction so no inventory was lost!

No job is too big or too small, we even offer local pickup and delivery! Services range from flat repairs ($7) and quick clean/lube ($20) to building bikes ($70) and complete overhauls ($100). Our website has all of our service prices and plans that we provide! Estimates are always free, we won’t charge you to just look!

We are so fortunate to have this amazing greenbelt trail system in our community and we want to see it utilized to its amazing potential. If we can even get 1% of those people off the road and onto a bicycle it would make a huge difference. Not just helping with all the bad traffic in the area, but making a stronger, happier, and healthier community.

Meet the Team!
