"I have always had good experiences at the Erie location of Kozy... If you're westish, there is also Live Grit at 1010 W. Monroe. On the Route is/was moving to 728 S. Dearborn, not sure if they are there now???"

"I might be wrong, but I think that On The Route was moving a bit further south. You may want to call and check.  "

"I don't know of anything walking distance.  Kozy's has a location on Erie just west of Wells and another one on--I think--DesPlaines about 800 south."

Bike repair in / close to the loop?

My chain snapped on my commute to work this morning - and unfortunately I don't have the tools/parts with me to fix it. Any recommendations of repair shops in/close to the loop? - hopefully walking distance from the Board of Trade which I work near... Hop g to get it fixed in time for Critical Mass!
