chicago bmx shops?

Hey, anyone know of a bike shop in Chicago that's the most knowledgeable with bmx bikes, or has the best selection of gear? Thanks.

Well, I don't know of any shops, but maybe if you call Yojimbo's on North Clybourne, they can help you find a place. 312.587.0878. If he doesn't have what you need, he can point you in the right direction. He does the repiars for a lot of the bike messenger guys.

don't bump threads. just look online or go to a bikeshop. In queens, every bikeshop has bmx parts. the one closest to my house is run by street mountain bikers, so they don't have much bmx stuff

I fail to see how that's an oxymoron, at least in the original meaning of the term. BMX refers to racing bicycles in a motocross style, which is exactly what racers do.

i mean that street, dirt, and park riding should not be in the same category as racing, because there is no motocross involved
