Castle Hill Cycles is a unique bike service shop based in Austin, Texas. We specialized in custom Pinarello road bikes for 10 years before we decided to shift our focus to bike services only. Our bike fit specialist, Jerry Gerlich, has over 20 years of riding, sales and fitting experience in the cycling industry and is one of only four fitters in the world certified by Steve Hogg of Sydney, Australia.
In 2004 Paolo Minissi started a boutique bike shop known as Biciclette Italiane, located at the center of Paolo's premiere fitness facility in downtown Austin, Texas, Castle Hill Fitness. In 2009, the bike shop moved its store-front to the front of the gym and was renamed to Castle Hill Cycles, and by 2014 it become one of the leading authorized Pinarello dealers in the United States. In 2015, we shifted our main focus from selling bikes to doing what we do best, bike related services such as comprehensive bike fittings and high quality technical work.
In addition to high-end road bikes, we also build and service triathlon bikes, track, tandems, mountain bikes and other custom frames. Our shop manager, Gordon Yang, has been servicing bicycles professionally for over 15 years.
