We can cover quick bike repairs like brake adjustments and flat tire repair, as well as complete tune-ups and overhauls.

We sell bikes to all of Chicago, providing current year model bikes at half the price of normal bike shops. We sell a wide variety of bike tubes, bike parts, and can get you fixed up anyway you need. Plus, we sell “I Bike Chicago” t-shirts as well as cool Chicago souvenir and cycling gear.
