Bike Shops I Frequent
- Rudy's Cycle & Fitness - 5711 W Irving Park Road, Chicago.  Nice neighborhood/family shop.
- Amlings Cycle - 8140 N. Milwaukee Ave, Niles, IL.  Full line of bikes and specializes in recumbents.
- Rapid Transit Cycles - 1900 W. North Avenue, Chicago, IL.  Urban bike shop.  Very Friendly, but difficult to find parking if you drive.
- Johnny Sprockets - Two locations. I've gone to 3001 N. Broadway St., Chicago, IL.  Word is that Matt is the best wheel guy.
- Village CycleSport - Arlington Heights & Elk Grove Village, IL.  Generally a higher end focus, the AH store also specializes in tandems.
- Lickbike - 310 Lake St., Oak Park, IL.  Great Prices.
- Get a Grip Cycles - 4359 W. Irving Park Rd., Chicago, IL.  High End/Custom.

I do not recommend Sportif Importer LTD on west Lawrence Ave in Chicago.  I have been treated rudely each time I have gone into the store and their sale signs never change.
