Spring and Summer Hours

Tuesday March 1st marks our 4 year anniversary of opening! It also marks our annual change to spring and summer hours until October. Starting March 1st our hours will be:

Mon-Thurs  10:00 AM-7:00 PM

Fri-Sat   10:00 AM-6:00 PM

Sun  11:00 AM-5:00 PM

We are aware that the 60 degree weekend weather will probably not hold but we will be here for when it does.

In other news, we have shop top caps for your bikes in stock! Here’s an example. Stop in to pick one up. And finally our wheelbuilding special ends February 29th (LEAP YEAR) so if you were sleeping on it you still have eight business hours to get on that ;).

We’ve added a resources page to the website as well. There you can find some quick links for mountain biking, what to do and who to call in the event of a bicycle crash, and help finding used bikes if new bikes aren’t what you’re looking for. See ya’ll soon!

The Afterglow

Hello friends,
We wanted to give an early warning that we will be closed this Saturday 12/19/2015 (as well as our regular winter Sunday closing) for the Afterglow cyclocross race in Douglas Park. Please consider racing with us and the Chicago Cutting Crew and raising some money for Blackstone Bicycle Works and West Town Bikes!

Cross is Here

If you are someone who rides a bike, or know someone who rides a bike, you probably know that cross has been coming and is now here. You’ve probably been reminded every time you look at a bike blog or instagram post, so I will get to the point. Hopkins Park CX is the second race of the all powerful and wonderful ChiCrossCup and is Sunday, October 4th. Why am I mentioning this over the other amazing races that so many shops and teams work tirelessly to throw? Because our race team Comrade Cycles Racing is throwing it! With our friends at Axletree of course.
Whether this is your first time racing or you’ve been with the Chicrosscup since the beginning you should come out. If you have any questions about registering, what to ride/wear/eat/or how to appropriately heckle just stop by the shop. Don’t know what cyclocross is? Just ask! (It’s can seem kinda strange.)
As you may already know we are closed on Sundays throughout the cyclocross season so we can all be there to race (and we continue to stay closed till March because winter). So see you Sunday at the Race!

Wheel Building Special

Wheel build special is on! We can help you drop some weight off your race bike, bomb-proofify the wheel set you work on, or set up a dynamo lighting wheel for your commuter. We’ve got the knowledge base and the experience to help you up your wheel game.

Buy your spokes, rim, and hub from us and get $60 off a single wheel build or $100 off a set. Call or stop by for pricing regarding rebuilding to existing parts. The special is on until March 1st.

The shop will be closed from Thursday, 11/27 through Sunday, 11/30. Bailey will be out racing the Gravel Grovel and the rest of the Comrades will be resting (or secretly riding the trainer).  Hopefully you have a wonderful weekend and as always appreciate everything ya’ll have done for us. We are open regular winter hours Monday through Wednesday 11/26 this week.
