Philip is super knowledgeable and was able to help me find the parts I needed and completed my bike build.

Shama Cycles provides top notch expert care. I went in for a bike fit and Philip spent a solid hour with me tweaking small things on my bike to make sure I was comfortable. I have had bike fits in the past, but never one this professional. I highly recommend for triathletes like myself!

Philip did a great job in helping build a high end custom bike. I could have easily gone for a ride (pardon the pun) with my lack of knowledge in building out a Cipollini MCM Allroad, but team walked me through each decision and pros/cons, pricing, discussed options and ensured when I was making decisions of what components to add that the decision made sense for me at the right price point. The result was a crossover road/gravel bike that can hang with most A groups while having fun, but can also ride on and off road. I picked up 2-3 MPH riding from my old aluminum bike (avg 19) to this bike as well. Philip's attention to detail in fitting me on the bike, spending over 90 minutes locking me into the ride, has made the sport even more fun now that I can ride longer without burnout.
For a custom ride and someone moving from beginner to intermediate to advanced and needing the right equipment to go with it, Phil can't be beat in what he does.

It was a really down to earth earth experience. They understood my level of experience and provided the right advice. They didn’t want to shovel (sell) products down my throat, just recommended what I needed.
It was an excellent experience.

Unmatched service & knowledge. There is not a better LBS in TX. Shama & his team have helped me whether it’s converting an old MTB to a 1x or building a custom gravel bike. I cut an hour off my IMTX bike leg by going to see Shama and working on fit & getting every watt out of your legs.

I know that when I go in, I won’t be upsold but instead will be given genuine service based on my needs! Also, can’t beat cupcake Friday’s.

Philip fit me on my Cervelho P3x last year in preparation for and Ironman. His professionalism and understanding of the bike fit is amazing! He's made me more aerodynamic, while keeping me very comfortable for long distance racing. He also the only mechanic that takes care of my bike, from tune ups to anything and everything a bike may need.

Phil is a serious cyclist and understands what serious cyclists need and want. The first time I went to Phil a chain bike shop told me that the drag in my drive train was in my head. Phil quickly found the problem and had me back in the pack. I just got back my bike from a full overhaul after not servicing it for two long due to Covid and it’s like new bike day. The drive train was as smooth as ever. He also fixed a derailleur problem I that had been driving me crazy for a year.

Phil Shama is a cyclist and knows what serious cyclists need. Came to him the first time to fix a problem that a chain store tried to convince me was in my head. Phil listened and solved it. Just brought my bike back for an overhaul as it hadn’t had service in nearly 2 years due to Covid. He fixed a shifting issue that seemed in fixable and had it feeling as smooth as the day I bought i
