Our entire staff at Universal Cycles take great pride in the quality of our customer service. Below are some of the kind notes we've received from our customers. We always appreciate your feedback and your suggestions.
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!

Mike, I would again like to thank you and your staff for your prompt response to orders and questions. The quick reply regarding a rear wheel trip computer set-up helped me get one on the way faster than I thought I would. Have a good ride this weekend.

I just wanted to pass on a huge, enormous big old thank you to Mark and anyone else that helped process my long lost order. It got shipped to my old apartment in Portland and I thought I was SOL... Thank for being super nice about the mix up and working with me to get it back. I rarely encounter such a high level of customer service and I wanted to let you know: Great Job! Will come again. Cheers,

Thanks for sponsoring the Sunday Parkways. I live in SE and look forward to this event every year. I rode with my wife, 7 year old daughter, and we brought some friends along. I've noticed your sponsorship since you guys moved to Burnside. That night night when I was researching then purchasing my new Reverb Seatpost, I had UC on my mind. I'm also a member of NWTA and I've taken notice of your support. Thanks and keep it going.

I just wanted to say 'Thank you" for you great website and supplying the parts I need at a fair price. I have seen a huge change in your web presence in the last ten years, your website is a wealth of information and makes the ordering process SO easy! I wish all the other bike parts sites could use your site as an example. Thank you for the options for very fast shipping from your various warehouses. Pleasure doing business with your company and I wish you much more success!

I will definitely recommend you to all my friends. Keep up the good work, it’s companies like you who make the tires go around. HA! Have a wonderful day.

Quick word of thanks. I recently did a pickp web order for some, stuff to bring back to my home in Denmark. I planned to use it all to renovate an aging Schwinn mountain bike into a reasonable commuter. Well everything was perfect and I just so much appreciate the great hassle free service. Thanks guys.

A big thanks to Mike, Mark, and Schmitty for thier efforts in resolving the shipping issues with my recent order. Thier professionalism was quite reassuring when my Rohloff hub was in UPS limbo. I won't think twice before I recommend UC to my friends.
