We teamed up with Heritage as part of our Chicago pop last year (we’re currently in Sag Harbor, Dallas, and Aspen for the summer). After all, this is the kind of family-run operation that can make all your bike-related dreams come true. Not only will they custom build one from scratch (Tassels? Glitter? No problem!), but they make great coffee, too. The original Lincoln Avenue outpost (owners Mike and Melissa Salvatore actually live upstairs) does both in addition to a sweet general store, while the newer Heritage Outpost in Uptown is devoted entirely to coffee. You’ll find free Wifi, and a group of people working on laptops, at both locations.
