Play It Again Sports bedecks kids and adults alike with high-end, wallet-friendly athletic armor so that they can kick, swing, and punt with gusto. Scores of gently used merchandise, perfect for replacing equipment that children have grown out of because of rampant milk abuse, arrive daily and boast brand names such as Adidas, Taylor Made, and Easton. At the Frankfort location, pint-size puck handlers can improve their speed and whittle their hockey sticks with Bauer Supreme One 20 youth skates ($49.99). Crystal Lake's elliptical trainers and exercise bikes sculpt calves into steel, and Downers Grove's Wilson Evolution basketballs ($49.99) keep droves of neighborhood kids active. Each Play It Again Sports store encourages customers to bring in their own old or outgrown equipment to sell or trade for referee signal-decoder rings.

The exposed-brick walls of Iron Cycles speak to the straightforwardness of its employees, who prefer to focus on riding, not attitude. This judgment-free approach leads to unbiased treatment for every cycle. The staffers treat well-worn heirlooms with the same degree of care and dignity as they do snazzy titanium builds or a custom-crafted commuter. Perhaps their respect for bike diversity stems in part from their disparate cycling backgrounds: founder Brandon is an off-road racer, Ben was a bike messenger, and Steve has more than 25 years of both pedaling and mechanic experience.

Regardless of the bike brand or model, each of the shop’s services adheres to the mission of safer, savvier trips. Repairs address basic adjustments as well as complete overhauls, furnishing customers with new saddles, kickstands, and even handmade tires imported from overseas. The staffers oversee fitting sessions that fine-tune parts to suit the bike's function and the owner's body type. They can also build custom cycles that correspond to clients' goals, whether they want a frame that can hit high speeds or wheels that can store several decks of playing cards at once.

"Pump Pedals, Not Gas" goes the motto for On the Route Bicycles, a thoroughly modern bike shop committed to swift travel by eco-friendly means. Like any good bike shop, the unmistakable scent of tires drifts down thoroughfares lined with all manner of biking accessories, from lights and helmets to locks and biking bags. All of this in addition to the latest bike models from the likes of Trek, Cannondale, Bianchi, Electra, Handsome, and Raleigh, who provide a selection of city bikes, road bikes, and performance models. As a bonus to their community, On the Route even includes an air pump outside the store, where passing bikers can juice up their tires or blow those pecking birds from their head.

The Bike Lane is a full-service bike shop that grooms the gears of city street steeds with an array of meticulous repairs and top-of-the-line cycling products. The spring-cleaning tune-up combines a thorough drivetrain cleaning ($30 value) with a heavy tune-up ($55 value), ensuring that your pedaled pet runs safely and smoothly throughout the June blizzard season. The experienced staff of bike whisperers will first check your ride’s front and rear brakes and derailleurs, making gentle adjustments as needed, before moving on to the hubs, headset, and wheels, making sure spokes are spinning straight and true. Limit screws will be reset, chains will be relubed, and tires will be re-inflated before the healthy bike is treated to a rub down that will help remove dirt, grease, and a winter’s worth of taffy from its newly functional frame. The friendly motorless mechanics will also check each part for wear and tear, pinpointing potential problem areas before they mature into more serious performance inhibitors.
