It’s not just a bike shop, and it’s not just a coffee shop—it’s an artistic space, a working space, a space to live in. They encourage everyone to bring suggestions and feedback; to bring their kids, or their laptops, or both; and to make new friends by elbowing into the community table. Everything they do is centered around this sense of community, right down to their manufacturing. Heritage bikes are designed, welded (by hand, out of American steel), and assembled right here in the city of Chicago. Plus, almost every bike is entirely unique, as Heritage focuses on full customization. Whether it’s sparkly colors or Italian leather accessories that float your boat, they’ll find something to match your style.
