Check this out...

Or more so... Chukk this out.

Last November, news began to spread that one of the local shops here in town had a fire.  After all was said and done, Chicago Drive Cycling and Fitness had been totalled. From fire, smoke and water damage the building was a complete loss. This long standing family run store quickly decided to move down the street to a temporary location as a new building was designed and built.

A few weeks later we received a call from the Klomps looking for rims. Obviously not an unusual request but as the conversation unfolded they were looking for 100+ rims for a design feature for their new building and landed on undrilled, bright silver, Chukker rims. Not our typical order but we were pleased to be able to be part of the design. 

Flash forward 8 months and the new Chicago Drive Cycling and Fitness Trek Concept Store has re-opened its doors again at it's original location.  As cyclists, many of us see the bicycle as functional art, meant to be used and abused, only to gain character over the years. It's hard not to appreciate it when parts of a bike are then taken to be used in ways and manors we could have never intended.

So if you're in the Grand Rapids/Grandville area, stop on by Chicago Drive Cycling and check out the new store and a few of our rims.
