The true definition of a one-stop bike shop. On one hand, you have Ciclo Urbano, which sells refurbished bikes (starting at $50) with a focus on transportation—in other words, less fixed gear, more functional rides—and new and used bike parts. On the other, there's West Town Bikes–a connected workshop space that hosts open nights for folks to work on their own bikes as well as various cycling-centric classes for kids and adults. It's a retail shop and community destination, all wrapped into one.
Some of us are casual riders; others are competitive cyclists. Beyond quality and safety, there’s style and speed to consider. You'll be pedaling down the 606 or zipping through Chicago's bike lanes in no time with our list of the best bike shops. Chicago has a plethora of them, selling boutique, custom and major brands of road bikes, mountain bikes and everything in between. Get out there and see the city's best sites from two wheels.
