Welcome!

Welcome to Cog Cycles Chicago!

We are a small business that specializes in tuning up and rebuilding steel frame road bikes. Brian is the brains and brawn behind the operation with over 10 years experience restoring vintage road bikes. Liz oversees everything else in order to keep this ship afloat while she's not teaching tiny children. Our goal is to grow this business into a brick & mortar storefront with active community engagement.

Join us on our journey transforming our bike shop dream into reality. In the meantime, check out some of Brian's work:

New Year

It's been awhile since I have been able to post anything here. Brian and I are looking forward to the 2019 bike season. This year we hope to find a storefront and once we do, we hope you'll come visit us!
