How It Works:

Text, Call, Or Email us to schedule service, or just drop by the shop during business hours to leave it with us for a thorough diagnosis. We'll make note of any special concerns you may have and examine the patient from head to toe, usually within 1-2 days. After that, we'll contact you in the manner of your choosing to discuss our recommendations. Once the work is approved, many repairs end up with a 3-5 day turnaround!

Your Bike Repair Experts

Our top mechanics have over 50 years combined experience turning wrenches. There isn't a problem we can't solve or a bike we can't fix. We treat each bike we service as if it were our own.

Whether you need your shifting dialed in perfectly, a broken spoke replaced, or a complete overhaul that makes your bicycle run and look as good new; we’re bike repair experts with the experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm to do the job right.

We've been working in the trenches next to UT campus for almost 20 years helping students and heavy commuters keep their bikes running smooth and efficiently. Ask anybody around campus where they take their bike to and they'll all say Clown Dog. That's because we genuinely care about you and your bike, whether you're riding a Huffy or a full carbon road bike. We're not afraid to get our hands dirty on your campus beater or uncommon project so rest assured that we'll love it when you bring us your tired, worn out, dirty, misbehaving bike. We'll get it set and safe!
