Our service manager Gordon Yang has been working on high-end bicycles for the past 15 years and has been a USA Cycling Certified Mechanic since 2002. As the lead mechanic at Castle Hill Cycles, Gordon has spent the last eight years building, repairing and tuning Pinarellos, developing an exceptional expertise with the intricacies of the various models in the Pinarello line.

Commensurate with his experience, all mechanic work is billed at a flat rate of $100/hour in 15-minute increments with a $25 minimum charge. In addition, due to high demand for Gordon's services, mechanic work is done by appointment. While we understand that the need for certain repairs cannot be foreseen, doing repairs by appointment allows our clients to have a clear expectation of when the work will be completed.

Please contact us at or call 512-478-4567 to make an appointment.
