What are you guys, even a bike shop? (I swear this guy calls like once a month)
The short answer is no, we are not a bike shop. What we are is a bicycle repair and service business. We will tune up, clean or restore your bike. We will repair your flat tires or broken chains. We can make any adjustment that your bike needs, repair or replace parts including tires, brakes, seats, handle bars, chains, chain rings or cassettes, fenders and wheel parts (including spokes or hubs). We can also assemble your new bike for you. We’ve provided these services and more to our customers. Give us a call to see how we can help you!
Where's your store located?
We don’t have a store, but we DO have a repair shop. Click on the Contact Us link above to find out where we’re at, or check us out on Google Maps. We are conveniently located in Lombard/Villa Park near the Great Western Trail, Illinois Prairie Path, and the Salt Creek Trail. Quite a few of our customers contacted us for the first time because they had a breakdown on one of these trails and we are very easy to get to. If you can’t get to us, give us a call and we’ll come to you.
I stopped by your repair shop and it looks like its a house to me. What's up?
OK, I do work out of a garage. This let’s me keep overhead low and pass the savings on to you. We have been in business since 2011 at this location. And yes, we are open in the winter, just use the side door. (we keep the main door closed in the winter to keep critters from wondering in off the Great Western Trail to keep warm)
Do you sell bikes and bike parts?
Yes we do! LiNiTo sells new bikes from 3G and ‘gently’ used bikes that have been fully inspected and tuned up. Our inventory changes regularly and you never know what we may have in stock. We also carry a limited supply of common new and used parts. Just click on the Shop link above to view our current inventory. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, give us a call and we can usually get it within a day or so from our local supplier.
I bought a lower priced bike at a department store and it doesn't shift or brake correctly. Can you fix it?
Yes we can! Our Basic Tune-up service will get that bike running great!
How long will it take for you to (fill in the blank) ?
We can complete most repairs quicker than other shops in the area.
Why should I schedule a bike tour with you when I can just download a map and go riding on my own?
Well you wouldn’t get our sparkling commentary during your ride if you were alone 🙂 and we can show where to get a quick cheap bite or beer before, during, or after your ride!
Can I wait while you do my repair?
Never a problem for a minor repair like a flat or chain repair. You’ll just have to listen to Radio Margaritaville with me while you wait.
What are your hours?
Monday – Friday 9 AM – 4 PM / Saturday 10 AM – 3 PM. We generally schedule tours for Sundays, but you never know, we just may be around. It’s always a great idea to give us a call to see. We do have longer hours during the warmer months. If you’re out riding, we’re usually available!
Is your work guaranteed?
Yes! All repairs and tune-ups are guaranteed for 30 days. We will also provide free adjustments for 6 months for any bicycle assembly.
Do you take credit cards?
Yes! We accept all major credit cards. The minimum amount that you can charge is $20.00 .
I just bought a bike online and had it shipped to my house. Can you put it together for me?
Of course LiNiTo can assemble your new bike for you. Along with the assembly, we’ll also perform a safety check. We will also adjust the brakes and derailleurs, lubricate the drive train and true the wheels if needed.
I'm restoring a 1970's Schwinn Continental...do you carry red tires for it? (Same guy as 1st question:)
If you’re trying to restore the bike to original condition, I’d stick with black tires, or black tires with gumwall sides. But, if you insist, we can get you red tires in a day or two. Just let us know if you want the tread portion of the tire red, or the sidewalls, or the entire tire.
