29ers Bike Shop celebrated its grand opening in Kingwood on Dec. 16. Located at 2614 Chestnut Ridge Road, Ste. A, the bike shop specializes in big-wheel BMX bikes, parts and accessories. Additionally, the shop offers repair services for most bicycles.

29ers Bike Shop owner Ross Lapham said he opened the business after searching extensively for a big-wheel BMX bike in the area to no avail.


“When I finally got one, it was glorious,” Lapham said. “All those memories of my childhood and bicycling came flooding back. I felt like a kid again.”

Once Lapham bought the initial bike, he purchased more for his family and eventually began to track down bikes for his friends.

“We had friends and neighbors start asking us about our bikes and where to get them,” Lapham said. “I started ordering more bikes to help more families get their own bicycles ... [and] 29ers Bike Shop and Rideout Gear was born.” 832-687-7498. www.29ersbikeshop.com
