About BSS

Austin born and Austin grown, each Bicycle Sport Shop location has a diverse staff of passionate cyclists with a love for riding. We're here to help make your cycling experience the best it can be through well-informed advice in a comfortable atmosphere. But, don't let our laid-back ATX attitude fool you; everyone at Bicycle Sport Shop is serious about doing whatever it takes to exceed your expectations.

Sharing our cycling passion is a tradition that began with Hill Abell and Laura Agnew in 1985 when they bought a small bike shop on Barton Springs Road that had opened a few years prior. The little shop was one of only a handful of stores in Texas that sold mountain bikes. What Hill and Laura lacked in business experience they made up for in sheer exuberance for riding.

While a lot has changed in the over 35 years since Bicycle Sport Shop opened, our core values haven't. To reach our goal of getting more people on bikes, we focus on:

  • Curating a thoughtful selection of bikes, accessories, and services that enhance the cycling experience;
  • A relentless dedication to the best customer service anywhere;
  • A no-excuses, 100% satisfaction guarantee; and
  • A commitment to cycling advocacy and community outreach.

While we're committed to an exceptional experience when you shop with us, we didn't become an Austin institution by just selling bikes. We're also devoted to doing the right thing for our community: protecting our trails, educating riders, supporting youth cycling, and championing bike-friendly laws.

In short, we love cycling. And we want you to love it as well.
