Inventory Arrives in Chicago

Stephan Schier - Friday, October 17, 2008

The Seattle staff are all in Chicago this weekend to assist with the grand opening of the Chicago store. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause our customers and visitors to the shop. Just give us a call in Chicago 312-265-0175 if you need any assistance. We all have access to email, so you can still reach us that way as well.

Our inventory has arrived. Thanks to Henry at Workcyles for packing more bikes into a 40 ft ocean-going container than seems humanly possible and seeing to it that they arrived in perfect time for our Grand Opening.  Thanks also to the Chicago area US Customs for making this the smoothest and swiftest clearing process we have experienced. Thanks especially to Gerson Development and Exit Management for making possible and welcoming us into our new home.

Any pics from the big day yet? I'm bummed I couldn't make it. Looking forward to my trip to your store this Sunday. I hope you have some Opas in stock :)

By the way, what happened to the Velorbis bikes? I noticed they are no longer on the web site.

See you Sunday.

I just posted a few pics.

We have a few Velorbis (Scraps and Churchill) bikes left in Chicago inventory, which were delivered to Seattle missing the shifting mechanisms and a few other parts, so we're still trying to source the parts directly from Shimano. I do have one 58cm Churchill which is available and one of the smaller Scraps.

See you Sunday.
