No. of Reviews: 7

Located on South Lamar in Austin, Texas, we work with only the best frames from the best frame-makers, as well as the best components and wheels. Having dealt with the frustrations of waiting for over a month to get a special-order frame in, we’ve worked out a running inventory system so you can get your frames faster with the component/wheel combination you’re after. We also have the experience to help you find the right configuration for the way you ride, as well as where you ride. We’re bike-junkies just like you, so we know the best of the best that’s out there and the best way to implement it into your unique top-notch ride.

Shop Summary:
Small but good selection of bikes and the normal accessories for sale.

Customer Service:
The guys (no gals) were great... honest, know there stuff, no attitude, and were able to do a few repairs for me while I waited.

Other Comments:
I wish my home town (Boulder, CO) had a shop that was as laid back, yet knowledgeable as this one. You get one or the other in Boulder.

Shop Summary:
Swung into Cycle Progression on trip down to Austin and found their shop to be packed with mountain bikes you only see in the pages of Dirt Rag. Pivot Mach 5.7, Pivot 429er, Turner Sultan, Intense, Vassago, and the list goes on. Rented out two Pivot Mach 5.7's and a 429er over a few days to hit local trails (Barton Creek Greenway & Muleshoe Trail) and found both bikes I road to be setup perfectly...so much so I'm working with the shop to custom build me a Mach 5.7 later this Spring.

Customer Service:
I had a blast hanging around the shop and talking shop with the owner and mechanic. They know their way around mountain bikes and gave me some solid advice on some ideas I'd been playing around with in my head for a new build. Excited to see what they put together for me this year, should be one sharp looking whip.

Other Comments:
Great service and they're prices are good and I did notice a few road bikes, believe they were Focus.

Shop Summary:
Just visited Alex a few days ago after checking out about a dozen other shops in town. I would have gone there straight-away, but I assumed all he had were $5,000 bikes that are out of my league. He definitely has those, but was willing to work to find a bike that fit my budget.

Easily the most knowledgeable, friendliest, and most trust-worthy bike shop I have yet visited in Austin. I'll be buying my bike from Alex after he specs it out.

This is the only shop I've given all 5s to.

Customer Service:
Alex spent about an hour with me, talking to me about my riding style, options for bikes in my price range, trails in the area, and about various components. With years of racing and other industry experience, he was the most knowledgeable person I have talked to about bikes in Austin. Yet where most people with his experience love to tell you how good they are, Alex was out to figure out what bike will work best for me, and is researching and compiling a list of the components that will build the right bike for me in my price range. At no point did he try to talk me into spending more than I intended.

Other Comments:
Absolutely the shop to go to if you want to talk to the expert. I wouldn't mess around anywhere else if I was looking to spend a couple grand on a bike, but even if you are looking for something more affordable (like me), go talk to him and see what he can do for you.

Shop Summary:
I recently purchased a Titus El Gaupo from Cycle Progression. I worked with Alex to select the right size, upgrade the rear shock, and select the right components. When the bike got to me (did I mention I live in Denver) it felt dialed-in on the inaugural ride. Alex was very helpful and knowledgeable and the bike fits my riding style perfectly. Everything came together perfectly and I could not be more pleased.
