    Shop suggestion in Arboretum area?

    We're moving to Austin next weekend and I'm here now having started my new job already.

    My Spectrum is here with me and has developed a habit of dropping the chain. Looking for a shop to take it to in the Arboretum area.

    Crank is a TA which is apparently a bit finicky in setup so I'd ideally like to find a shop that has seen one before.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    +1 Have had very good experience with their service department.

    Took the bike there tonight. Nice shop and good experience with the service dept: the guy (Dillon) put the bike up in the stand and spent about 10 mins trying to diagnose it on the spot. I wound up leaving it since I'll be OOT most of the rest of the week.

    Austin Flyers Cycling club does a Saturday morning ride from their parking lot. It is about 35 miles, a loop out to 360, up to Bee Cave, then Cuernavaca to River Hills, back to 360 (on Bee Caves), and back to the shop.

    Nice ride, pretty hilly. It is not a no drop ride, but they do regroup a couple of times (I was dropped far enough back that I never caught them, but there are enough cyclists on 360 and Bee Cave that if you were to run into trouble, someone would stop to assist...if needed).
