Hello boys and girls

Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself for what it's worth. I'm a shop employee in the NW burbs of Chicago. I ride three Yetis (well, technically only two). I've got a 2001 ARC, a 2002 Road Project, and a 1998 Schwinn Homegrown, which I've converted for use as my singlespeed. If anyone in the Chicago burbs needs something from a LBS, let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.

I'm a long way from Chicago, but I'm glad you could make it.

How can you ride two bikes at once? I sometimes have trouble with one! Anyway if you got the joke Welcome to the Forums if not......well I suppose......... c'mon in.

You sound like my mom. And believe me, I've got plenty on my hands with just one bike. At the prices I can get them for, I just can't say no. I think I need help.

Hey Waldo,

Which shop do you work at. I am looking to get refitted on my road bike. I need to find a shop that can do that well.


Thanks,

Bill F.

Bill-
I work at both the Arlington Bicycle Company and the Barrington Bicycle Company. Both shops are under the same ownership. We have the whole fitstick setup and all the goodies at the Arlington Heights store but can basically accomplish the same results by setting you up in a trainer at the Barrington store (where I usually work). We'll get you set up, just let me know.
