2010 Big Shell Bikes on Allister

A Little history: Did you know Big Shell Bikes’ Johnscott has been slinging beach bikes since 2010. They started as a West Coast-style Fat Bike Cruiser Shop, making and selling custom bikes while offering bike rentals. They worked hard to provide the highest quality bikes in the area, and with thousands of bikes sold and many friends made, it’s no wonder they became the top bike shop in Port Aransas. 

Big Shell Bikes started out  on the corner of Allister and Brundrett and stayed at that location for years. It was a classic Port A staple. In August of 2016, they packed their bags and moved about 2 streets over to Camp Coyoacan for their new chapter of slinging bikes and glamping tent stays. One year later and Hurricane Harvey wiped everything out in August 2017.  The whole town was devastated, and Big Shell Bikes was no different. Without a location, they offered delivery and pickup only. Still, the following December, they set up a temporary location and then finally a permanent home a year later at the Historic Anglers Court.
