Pedaling Bicycles in SE Texas Since 1984
Bicycle Sports was established in 1984 by Dan Floeck, Jr, Mike Rysso & Eric Bender. We opened as Beaumont Schwinn, with a small store in The Oaks Shopping Center, Dowlen at Phelan. After three years, we expanded our store within that center. Five Years later we moved to the Colonnade Center and changed our name to BICYCLE SPORTS. We remained there until moving to our current location in May 2004.
Over the years, the "ownership structure" has changed, too. Today we are owned by theBanks, Insurance Companies and Tax Assessing Agencies, which has freed us to concentrate on cycling !
Oh, and a special thank's to Wells Fargo Bank for believing in us and investing in our dream.
UPDATE:: Wells Fargo, who is known for Predatory Lending Practices, has turned on me.
I was not aware a bank could turn on a client like they have. Our "account representative" said, "You are paying us on time, every time, you are paying more that what's due, but we don't want you as a client anymore. We're calling the note. As of 60 days ago, you are in arrears."
This came after assurances from another account representative that I had nothing to worry about. "We are not in the real estate business..."
Try as I may, they will not give me complete information, whole answers, complete answers. They seemed to believe in my dream, now they are giving me nitemares! I will do as much as possible without hiring an Attorney, but I am on the verge.
