Even at the peak of Chicago’s hottest summers and meanest winters, the Johnny Sprockets team can be seen riding on the lakefront path or dodging cabs in the bike lanes. Owner Manuel Tenorio makes it clear that the staff members are cyclists and not just salespeople. They learn about their inventory first-hand, and they outfit their customers with equipment that they themselves endorse.
The team also services and repairs all types of cycles. With each visit, they perform a free, no-obligation estimate to assess cycle health and suss out any potential troubles. They can perform minor repairs on the spot, and they also accept appointments for tune-ups, overhauls, or a bike’s first haircut.
