About Us

South Austin's Bike Shop

BIKEALOT is an independent, sustainable, mechanic owned and operated, full service South Austin neighborhood bicycle shop. I'm Brad, the owner, and I've had a lifelong passion for riding. As a bike courier in the 90's, my friends nicknamed me "BIKEALOT," so when I opened my own business, naming it was a no-brainer. I love fixing bikes and fitting people for their ideal bikes.  

At BIKEALOT, we’re passionate about bicycles. We believe bikes offer a simple solution to lots of the complex problems facing both our local community and the wider world. Bikes are great for our personal health, and for the health of our environment. Bikes offer a sustainable way to save you money on transportation, and provide endless miles of fun with your family and friends.

While we service all brands originally sold through bike shops (not department store bikes), we focus on selling upright & drop bar commuter bikes, gravel grinders, kids bikes, and mountain bikes. We also sell all the parts, tools, accessories, and gear you need to keep rolling.

We made the tough call in March of 2020 to close our showroom for the duration of the Coronavirus crisis to help protect public health. So we've posted lots of photos throughout our website to do our best to virtually welcome you to our shop.

In order to better serve our cycling community, we now have an online store so you can shop from the comfort & safety of your home or phone. Call us if you need help finding the right bike or gear, or if you need an appointment for service.

100 Years of Bicycle Posters

by Jack Rennert

Brad found this book at a bike enthusiast's estate sale. It was well loved, and in rough shape, so we cut out the posters to make a mural for our customers to enjoy.
The book is fascinating! Did you know bicycle technology and the Art Nouveau movement evolved simultaneously? Some famous artists in the movement made many of the posters featured in this enlightening book, where art history and bike history merge.
Spanning the 1870's - 1970's, gifted artists capture and advertise advancements in things such as innovative new frame materials like aluminum, early high-society bike parks, the latest riding fashions, and the inspiration of bicycles in the women's liberation movement.
Until it's safe to welcome customers back inside our showroom, we hope y'all enjoy these photos of our historic bike poster mural.
