Hey Chicago, we wanted to address some of the recent events regarding an individual formerly associated with this shop. For all of those concerned, this individual is not an owner, has not worked here for over six months, and is not affiliated with the shop in any way. While many of you may recognize this individual from previous visits to the shop or from older articles online, know that they are no longer associated with The Bike Lane. This post may be confusing for some, but for those who know what this is about, we felt the need to clarify our position. Whether you are a fan of our shop or not, please know that racism and bigotry have no place at The Bike Lane. We are a community bike shop and do not tolerate hateful words or actions of any kind.
