Went into the local Portland store clueless and ready to spend some money on stuff I really didn't need. Not only did I get massive amounts of information, but was helped to decide not to buy anything that day. (Which ended up being a very good thing!) After a lot of research, I now have a much better idea of what I need, and though UC lost a cheap sale that day, they've gained a lifelong customer and all of my future bike and accessories purchases. Thanks for the honesty and amazing help!

Just wanted to comment on Mark's service. I have called several time in the last two days with product questions. He has been very helpful and knows the products. My order has been placed. Thanks

Just wanted to say thanks to all the guys at Universal Cylces Portland. I recently had a custom bike built up by Universal, and even though I ordered a couple of parts that did not work out, they made everything right and the bike looks and rides perfectly. They also built me up an absolutely gorgeous/super strong pair of wheels. I couldn't be more stoked!

Dear Universal, last week I purchased a bar and stem I was looking at for a long time. The price was right and I bought the products from your store after getting the free shipping. Your flow of operation is what stood out for me as a customer/consumer. I instantaneously received an order confirmation and 4 hours later my products were shipped, to top this off it arrived in not 7 days but in 2. I don't know what your doing but keep up with it as it Rocks!! Thanks for making out biking world a better one!!

I wanted to commend you folks on how you do business. Your website is great (has everything I want), and prompt delivery is fantastic! As you know there are on-line retailers that deceive you into thinking they have product in their inventory and don't tell you until you call them a few weeks later about the delay in delivery. Thank you for everything.

I just wanted to say thank you for doing such a superb job. I've ordered alot from you over several years ... wheel sets, a frame, and a lot of components. You're website is great, you have almost everything I could need, you send out notes when things ship ... you're a pleasure to do business with. I don't even check other stores anymore .... I could care less if someone else is cheaper ... they couldn't beat your service. Please pass my comment on to whoever is in charge. The company I work for is built on service ... and, like your business, customer service is what matters. Thanks,

Just wanted to send a quick note thanking you for the excellent service on this order. This was my first time using an online store for bike parts and I couldn't be happier with the results. You matched the best price I found, had the lowest shipping costs and have everything delivered ahead of schedule. I will most certainly be using Universal Cycles for my next online order. Thanks you.

Just a quick note of thanks to the entire team at the Portland store. You all have helped me to equip and build up a couple of bikes. I really appreciate your guidance, expertise, and patience. You have a great team! Best regards,

Hey, Just wanted to give a big thanks to you guys. I ordered almost all the parts I needed for my bike build and found everything I was looking for plus great service. Especially with returns and questions I had about parts. You guys are awesome!

Just wanted to thank you guys for your awesome customer service. Though it was only a small part I ordered (a chain catcher), when I returned it due to incorrect size (I measured wrong), you guys exchanged it for the correct size and shipped it out to me fast and with no hassles. You even kept me updated regularly as to the status of the order. Customer service like this is sorely missing in today's retail environment. Thanks again!! Best regards,

I just wanted to commend you for your excellent customer service. I bought a bike frame for my son over a year ago. It was stolen and just now (10 months later) he has found it... I needed a copy of the receipt for the police and your guy found it and emailed it to me in less than a minute! Thank you!!!

You guys rule by the way - website, inventory and the way it's listed/described and search options, service and delivery - all second to none. Respect ;)

This isn't a question as much as a thanks to the staff at universal cycle. I have bought many products in the last year but recently upgraded my chainring. Your staff walked me through the whole process and provided me with advice over several phone calls. They treated me as if I was spending thousands and not $100. With service like that you have won my devotion and business

I'm writing to whom it may concern to provide some positive feedback for the service and support I got from Mark H. I contacted him today with a last minute request to rework an order, which I placed in the AM. I spend most of my weekends racing everything from road double centuries to mountain bikepacking events. Naturally I'm always in a push trying to get myself and gear ready for the next weekend. I've been meaning to get an order together for some wheel parts so I can build over the weekend. Naturally I've been busy with a double century last weekend and a bikepacking trip the weekend before. So, I've got a free weekend and I know Tuesday is the deadline to get parts from Universal Cycles to my place in LA. I put together an order in the AM and placed it early so it would ship the sameday. Obviously I goofed up and picked a few items which would not be available to ship right away as they are not in stock.
I quickly realized that I had made a mistake and contacted Universal Cycles via the online chat. Mark H was able to help me sort out the issue, remove the items which couldn't ship today, add new items, and help get [my order] out the door for Tuesday shipping to my LA location on Friday. Amazing service and great help. I really like shopping with UC. I enjoy the good customer service, wide selection, and the online stock indication letting me know what you have on hand. It really makes a big difference for me. I wish you would put a Universal Cycles here in LA!!!
I've had Mark H. help me several times in the past and he is always doing a great job. The rest of the customer service department is always helpful as well and make shopping online feel more like a local shop. Keep up the good work guys!

Hey guys, just read today's Spoke'n'Word (really clever name btw) and just wanted to let you guys know I really enjoy them. They help keep me motivated to ride during the long Reno winters. I know you guys know all about it. I wish you guys still had a place here. I remember buying my first Buzzys shock pump from you guys over 11 years ago when you were on 4th street. Anyway just thought I'd let you know the newsletter is great and if you ever think about coming back to Reno let me know.

Not only do I not memorize all the part specifications of all my bikes but it's so damn hard to keep track of all the esoteric and proprietary tech out there. With that said, I'm so thankful you guys keep such good records and make my old orders so accessible for me. I had to reference an order from 2008 to figure out what I needed to buy today. Thanks to Vic & crew!
