More about the new owner

Mandalyn lives in Logan Square with her family and has been a small business owner for over a decade. Owning the bike shop is the perfect fusion of her love of urbanism and enthusiasm for a biking lifestyle.

She has been biking with her two kids since they were very small, carrying them in everything from a kid seat on the back of a cruiser to an electric-assist Urban Arrow. Her happiest moments involve Jeni’s Darkest Chocolate, picnics in the park, jumping in the lake, and cruising the 606 at dusk.

What about…?

You might have questions about what new ownership means for you and your bike. Here’s a short list of what to expect, and if your question isn’t answered here or on our FAQ page, please reach out to the shop directly.
