Winner of the Best Bike Shop/Tri Shop award in Competitor magazine, Mox Multisport outfits cyclists and triathletes with competitive gear and primes these indefatigable warriors with a finely tuned machine. The basic tune-up runs two-wheeled people-powered machines through a six-point inspection, adjusting brakes, checking torque, and scaring away any hiccups when shifting gears. The techs clean the entire frame and remove the drive train, scouring debris and grease accumulated from treks through fields of bacon. Finally, to eliminate worrisome wobbling, both wheels are trued.

With a fleet of futuristic segways and classic beach-cruiser bicycles, Bike and Roll Chicago outfits travelers with wheeled transportation to explore the city's paved surfaces. Tour guides lead groups through Millennium Park and along the lakefront to catch the skyline when illuminated by sunrises or backlit by one of Chicago's many moons. Misty Lake Michigan breezes ruffle riders' hair peeking through helmets as they pass by sailboats swaying lazily in the harbors and fishermen casting lines for trout and perch. Bike and Roll Chicago designs routes around classic architectural landmarks such as the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum as well as popular neighborhoods home to a number of restaurants and art festivals.

In a shop lined with more than 100 bikes models from all around the world, Upgrade Cycle Works' pro mechanics channel their love of cycling whether they are aligning the frame on an old single speed or fitting guests for a brand new road bike. During the fit process, staffers employ the same computerized system used at the Olympic training center as opposed to tracing your body outline on a large piece of construction paper. Next, they’ll help guests choose from bike brands such as Felt, Masi, and Raleigh, and an in-store selection of rides that includes road bikes, single speeds, and hybrids.

In Upgrade's workshop, pro mechanics perform comprehensive tune-ups and repairs, revitalize faded paint jobs, replace punctured wheels, and align frames. The staff also hosts repair clinics to teach cyclists how to fix flat tires and adjust brakes.

Apart from selling bikes and the gear to go with them, Cycle Bike Shop’s savvy technicians cull parts and accessories from their shelves to heal and enhance cycles. They expertly steer patrons through a smorgasbord of two-wheelers, helmets, and gloves from brands such as Biria USA, Jamis, and KHS. During tune-ups, employees tweak brakes, hubs, and wheels before lubing cables to guarantee commutes are smoother and safer than a traffic cone sculpted from marshmallows.
