"I am quite sure I saw this bike on the lakeshore today going north from navy pier around 7:20. I got a pretty good look at it and it had the right wheels (from the look), bright yellow seat, same tires, same cranks, same fork, didn't get a good…"

So, BMX yeah?

I ride. Many of my boys ride. Would you like to be a pepper too?Typically a group of buddies and myself strike out on Saturday nights for some street sessions as well as the occasional Wilson/31st/Logan trip but weeknights also tend to be open from time to time.Skill level varies wildly with some high highs and some low lows. The only requisite is a need for fun, a bike that you can jump stuff with (without it falling apart upon re-entry) and a highly abstract sense of humor.Sound good? Let's…See More

April Kidical Mass - 4/20/13

As some of you may know, Turin Bicycle has re-opened its doors at a new location in Ravenswood at 4710 N. Damen. As a way of getting to know the neighborhood and sharing some of our love for bikes, we would like to stage some fun pre and post ride activities in conjunction with the April Kidical Mass. If this sounds good to everyone, let us know; we've got a few things planned that should be a blast for everyone attending!See More

If you’ve recently ridden down Damen between Lawrence and Wilson or just heard the scuttlebutt, then you know that Turin is about to re-open for the coming season with a new (to us) home in Ravenswood. With what’s sure to be a crazy summer in front of us, we’re looking to hire uniquely qualified applicants for positions in sales, service and perhaps a little of both. All applicants must have a strong retail and customer service background. They should be well organized, clean (no smelly bike…See More

ChrisO! replied to Amanda's discussion Old (vintage) parts?
"^ I feel ya; as standards change (viable) parts become frustratingly scarce. When you talk about parts from the 70's and 80's the success rate takes a huuuuge dip. In the past, I've found the best way to get a classic old frame up and…"
