In 1985 by Hill Abell purchased Bicycle Sport Shop from its founders. The Shop quickly established itself as the premier mountain bike specialty store in Texas. Riding the popularity of the mountain bike boom, Bicycle Sport Shop capitalized on people’s love for going off pavement, exploring the trails and dirt roads of the world on the new knobby-tired wonder-bikes. A passion for off-road riding and our mission to share that passion with as many people as possible quickly vaulted Bicycle Sport Shop into the top tier of specialty bicycle retailers in the U.S.

After opening our second store in 1988 in northwest Austin, Bicycle Sport Shop added a full array of road bikes and other skinny-tire equipment to complement their fat-tire offerings. Bicycle Sport Shop now has a full time staff of over 100, operates two area stores and is considered by many as a quintessential Austin-style businesses that celebrates the quality of life Austin is so well known for.

Bicycle Sport Shop’s mission is to encourage and support more people to ride their bicycles more often. Please stop by our blog regularly to discuss cycling for fun, function or fitness.
