The Cycling Analysis session process addresses seven critical elements to a great ride: comfort, stability, balance, power, breathing, nutrition, and biomechanical efficiency. This information gathered through an interview, physical assessment, Dartfish video motion capture, Computrainer Spinscan pedal stroke analysis, and size cycle session help technicians optimize the bike's comfort and performance. All information gathered throughout the process is carefully recorded and kept on file for future reference and updates.

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.
Yojimbo’s Garage is a great local garage in Chicago. It’s a neighborhood shop where you can get your bike repaired, try out a bicycle, or just say hello to the three cats who live there (D.C., Pearl, and Gracie). This bike shop will make you think of that old movie Breaking Away. Or even the old tool bench your dad used to putter around on in the basement when you were growing up. Yojimbo’s is local and quality. If you need advice about what sort of bike or equipment you need for a certain event, this is the place to go. They know what they’re talking about here, and they’re friendly when they do it!
Village Cycle Center has more than 10,000 bikes in stock, but it's not the insane inventory that has made the shop a go-to for many of the city's cyclists—it's the service. The expert mechanics here customize every bike to fit each individual rider's comfort and safety. That means picking the correct frame size, adjusting the seat, and calibrating the brakes so they stop the wheels instead of just squealing, "STOP!"
When not readying new rides—or tuning up existing ones—Village Cycle Center's staff doles out plenty of free advice, especially when it comes to accessories, which range from helmets, pumps, and locks to hydration systems and car racks. The shop's passion for bicycles extends into the community, as well, as Village Cycle Center sponsors such popular events as the L.A.T.E. Ride and Bike to Work Week.
