You might look at the Austin Motel (www.austinmotel.com), which is in the South Congress area. My brother and I got a room for $99 and it was recommended by a longtime resident. Not too far from the show location, I believe.
We rented a couple of city bikes for getting around town from the Bicycle Sport Shop. They have road bikes and mountain bikes as well. http://www.bicyclesportshop.com/
Hope that helps...

Thanks for the hotel tip.... unfortunately, it's all booked up. As well, the $129 Courtyard block is gone. I did grab a room over at the Rennaisance Inn.... @ the $149 rate. sounds like rooms are goin fast !!
I hear the restaurants and downtown area are really nice. (still huntin down a bike solution!)
