I'm going to be in Chicago over Labor Day weekend, and I was curious of anyone knew of some nice bike shops the city has to offer? I've looked online, but I was wondering if anyone with first-person experience could suggest a place or two?
Serotta Fierte and a 1989 Centurian Prestige (plus, various others)
Stay away from village cycle; they suck.
Cycle Smithy has a few fixed / single speed riders working there, and a nice display of some old track bikes not for sale, and a case full of super pretty track components.
Lickton's is not worth a trip since they are primarily mail order so there's not much to look at.
There's a Performance and they have a wide range of items, some track bikes, and all that other cheap stuff that a Performance carries.
Yojimbo's is a great shop, but not really the kind of place you can just look around, since it's small and independent; they sort of expect you to pick things, pay and get out so they can lock the door and get back to work.
