This cool shop, opened by two local bike lovers, stocks bikes from Opus, Ritte, Alu-Boo and Moots, with a focus on commuter and lifestyle products and bikes. It's located on Milwaukee, which means thousands of bikers ride by each day. Coming in summer 2014: a cafe called Roll Out, with the hopes of making this a major biker hangout.
