Been meaning to drop off some parts at The Recyclery for awhile, and recently acquired a bike which needed wheels. I finally ran over there today. They were appreciative of the parts donation, and I couldn't have been more pleased with the help I got finding wheels. No less than three people helped me at various times. On top of it all, the price for the wheels was terrific.
If you need used parts, a used bike, or access to open shop to keep from wrecking your kitchen with greasy hands and bikes, I highly recommend The Recyclery.
I don't think of them as "new" but don't know their history.
Add to the list:
Bike 'N Rose just closed one of their two shops in Albany Park to focus on the one in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood. Bad for me, they did a lot of good work for me. Trained a lot of kids from the 'hood, Von Steubin and Roosevelt schools.
Recyclery has been around for a while, though they may be off the radar for a lot of people. Thanks for giving this worthy organization a mention, as well as Bikes N Roses and Working Bikes.
