    I'll let the Austinites (is that what you call someone from Austin?) chime in as to which they would recommend, but when you need driving directions...

    If you have a GPS you can upload our POI file of all the bike shops we have listed. We also have a POI file that will get you to all of the trails:

    Well I'm from Killeen and can say I've got great service at University Cycles and also Bikesportshop.

    What's wrong with SunCountry--have you tried to talk to the manager....?

    Well, here is the short list:

    Bicycle sport shop - great service at the south location, north is average on service, wide selection, rentals in the south.

    University - good people, open on sundays, also rent.

    Ozone - now that the old owner is gone its a good place to go. Helped me out big time with some on the spot repairs, good vibe inside.

    Hammerhead - bought my current bike from them, boutique shop, best high end brands, great service, tough hours (M-F only)

    Cycle progression - great selection of high end bikes, awesome service. Opened up early just to fix my bike once, really solid.

    Freewheelin - bought first real bike there, nice folks, focus on the trek/klein/fisher level bikes.

    There are plenty of others, that should get you started.

    I like Bicycle Sport Shop(both locations). They have been fair with me in all purchases and service. I have had some issues with product purchases in which BSS could have done nothing but they stood by their word and honored their commitment to me.
