Every so often we get a bicycle that's a game changer for the cycling industry. From the early days of the P3, then the P4, that led to the P5, Cervélo has continuously raised the bar for defining "aero". With the release of their latest tri-bike (which is stamped "Made in USA") they've without a doubt or question done it again. Here are a few shots of the very first P5X to leave Wally's Bicycles. Enjoy!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Lets be honest, we ALL probably gained just a 'tad-bit' of weight over the holiday weekend. Those extra lbs aren't going to ride themselves off, so hop on your bicycle!

While many of us were busy eating turkey, tamales, cabrito... and so many other things, these two were/are tapering down to their 'A' race. Good luck to all those at Ironman Cozumel this weekend! ... See MoreSee Less
It's dark out, but our 53x11 Monday Ride is still on! Last week's ride was nothing short of amazing, the organization between the riders through the dark evening roads is awesome. Please be sure to bring both a front AND rear light. Our shop always provides a SAG vehicle. Wheels down at 6pm, we'll see you soon! ... See MoreSee Less
8 years ago I convinced a triathlete to do an Ironman with me. It would be his first, my second race of that distance. We sat down in front of a laptop and signed up at the same time just a few mins after online registration opened. Little did I know the journey that we were opening up the door to together.
We all know him in the local community as Ironmanny and not many of us can say we've endured the struggles that he has as a cyclist & triathlete. We've seen him battle not only injuries from training, but also recover from getting hit by a car while riding. It was an accident we all knew would change him, that took years to recover from, but to see him come back stronger and faster and with more motivation is nothing short of miraculous.
This week Emmanuel Lopez will go up against his second Ironman in Cozumel and all of us at Wally's Bicycles can say that we're very proud and fortunate to be part of his journey. Here's a pic of Ironmanny with his new custom bike. Every nut, bolt, and component is to his specs and we're excited to see them conquer 112 together! ... See MoreSee Less

Tomorrow is IMHO one of the most important events of the year, the Buitron I've got your six 5K/walk. Little introduction is needed to the Buitron's if you're in the cycling/running community.

All of us are speechless. After spending 5hrs 16mins swimming, 18hrs 38mins biking, and 12hrs 32mins running. Memo Tijerina Jr completed all three distances (6.2 mile swim/ 263 mile bike/ 52.4 mile run) at the Ultra 520K Texas.
What many don't know is that Memo broke his elbow on a group ride a couple weeks back when a dog ran into the pack of cyclists, sending him into the pavement. Managing the swim with one arm, and completing the cycling and running with the injury, he still came out victorious!
On a more personal note, Memo is one of my closest friends and I don't think there is a person who has invited, ...forced me, over to his home to have dinner with him & his family more times than this gentleman right here.
I am very proud and blessed to call him my friend and I hope his experience this past weekend opens the door of ultra distance triathlon to many more athletes here in the RGV.

The Ultra 520K Texas is happening this weekend and we're wishing all the best to Memo as he conquers one of the hardest events in the world of triathlon. GOOD LUCK!!! ... See MoreSee Less

After watching the Rio Olympic 2016, I saw more than a few bikes in the road race, triathlon, & tt with gumwall/beige sidewalls. What tire were all these pro's running? This is it! The new Vittoria Corsa G+ series is also independently tested to be the fastest tire on the market too. Check out the link below, the data doesn't lie. If all else fails, they look really cool!!!
