Shipping & returns


Most standard bicycle lines we carry may be purchased online, are restricted by our Dealer Agreement to in-store pick-up. We can only sell bicycles that have been fully assembled by our staff.

Bicycles eligible to be shipped will be pre-assembled and fully adjusted. Brompton bicycles are simply folded for shipping after pre-assembly has been completed. Full-size bicycles will be minimally disassembled: front wheel, pedals, handlebar and saddle removed.


If you're shopping on our website for convenience, or because you want to take advantage of special service or merchandise offers (or buying someone a surprise gift!), you can pick it up at our store during regular business hours, once you've received an email that your item is ready. Service purchased online can be redeemed anytime, but time frame for completing repairs will be dependent upon current workload.

Gift-wrapping is available upon request on items other than bicycles.


Local delivery and setup in Chicago and nearby suburbs is available with the purchase of Brompton bicycles, electric and cargo bikes, and most adult bikes purchased through our website. If you choose this service, we will contact you to schedule a convenient time to deliver the item to your home and office, and include a brief demonstrations of the bicycle's features, and folding and electronic systems if applicable.

Select the FREE SHIPPING option and we'll ship your order via USPS (US Postal Service) or FedEx.

Free shipping is available on orders of $75 or more shipped to a single U.S. address, after promotions and discounts are applied.
