    Chicago Bike Shop Question

    A few years ago I was in Chicago and visited a really great LBS. It was three floors and the top floor had folders and a small indoor track you could ride around. The people were really nice too. I can't remember the name and location. I just know that it was walking distance (long walking distance I think) from the Drake Hotel.

    I'll be back in Chicago in two weeks and would like to stop in again. Any help please. Thanks.

    ^ but the OP said the store was within walking distance of the drake hotel.

    the drake hotel is 6.3 miles away from kozy's milwaukee ave location.

    that's a pretty long walk.

    besides, the OP also said the bike shop had 3 floors and i don't think kozy's milwaukee location is 3 floors (but it's been a long time). i don't think i've ever been inside a 3 story bike shop.

    The first rule: if you're riding a bike and not having fun, then you're doing it wrong.

    Let's not argue here. I'll give them a call when I get there. I also may have my hotel wrong. The conference used to be at the Palmer House so I don't really remember which hotel I walked from. Thanks for the input.

    If it's Chicago then I would guess the loser has to eat the hot dog?

    How about Village Cycle at 1337 N. Wells. Haven't been there in a few years but sounds like the place. My GF bought a bike there and was very happy with the service she got.

    Not if you're Andy Samberg, then you could just throw it on the ground.
