Your Next Steed: Meet Chiron

Meet Chiron, this Centurion Accordo has been hanging around the shop for a bit. We picked it up at a local pawn shop and gave it a makeover. The lugged frame road bike is now a single speed and perfect for riding around Chicago.

New rear wheel, bottom bracket rebuilt, headset rebuilt, new chain and freewheel, new saddle, new bar tape and brake lever, new tires. 

Interested in test riding Chiron or any of our other builds? 
Contact us:

Everything is adjusted and we will take care of any problems that arise in the first few weeks of riding.


  1. Sold! Chiron hung around the shop longer than expected, but at least its found a good home.

New Photos of Natalia the Nishiki Century

Yep, Natalia is still here. We recently found a new wall to photograph against and it really brings out the best in Natalia's natural beauty. Hopefully these photos will pique someone's interest to take this lovely bike home.  Email us at to come check out this bike. We can always arrange custom builds if this one isn't the right fit.
