Some members of the Chicago bicycle scene have collaborated to create, a new site that has a directory listing of bicycle shops in Chicago. In addition to having some handy info (Do they offer rentals? Can one get a discount?) there is also a place where users can leave comments Amazon-style to know who out there is worth your hard-earned money when buying new equipment.
