Good bike shops in Austin?

I know REI and I know the Ozone bike shop on Guadalupe.

Must be a bunch I'm missing, any LBS names would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

I bought my ICE Vortex there - the owner, Mike, is very knowledgeable.

Mellow Johnny's is a shrine to Lance Armstrong. I won't set foot in there.

Nor will most transportational cyclists.

There's a few new ones that have opened on the East side, to add to AusTexMurf's list:
Windmill Bicycles: They've got a few Fairdale bikes and similar cruisers.
Cycleast
Division 1 Bicycles: Automated tube vending machines outside, fanciest bikes on the East side inside
Fast Folks (not actually new)

"North"
University Cyclery
The Peddler

Well, then you'll miss out on some of the highest prices in town!

That said, I'd strongly suggest making an exception for their "Mellow Swap" which is usually the first Saturday in November. Some really great deals there, and since it's outside in the parking lot, you might be able to convince yourself that it doesn't count as "setting foot in there".

Come to think of that I've actually been to a Mellow Swap a few years back, got some good stuff there too (factory seconds pannier) Thanks for reminding me!

Southwest CycleSport in Bee Cave (NW Austin). Ridiculously good service, good prices and a ton of bike experience. They are the only guys that work on my bikes.

Cheers

The Pedaler on North Loop is a nice LBS that can take care of transportational cyclists. Michael at Waterloo Cycles on Fruth (UT area) has a lot of old parts and can turn repairs around quickly (Pedaler is also good about this--a plus if you've actually ridden the bike in for tweaking). A great way to see a lot of area shops is to attend the monthly Frankenbike swap meets--often hosted at various LBS sites.
