I heard a rumor that Bowery Lane Bicycles was going to open up a shop in Chicago and has started fabricating frames in Chicago.
This rumor was started by me :)
From Bowery Lanes fb page:

So when does it open? And where?
Waiting to submit the permits to the city to start build out and we will go from there.
Location: Lincoln and Wellington
Good News- We have already completed our frist run of our new bike from our Chicago fabrication. It looks great. We are taking them to get painted next week.
Note- The shop and the line of bikes from Chicago will be called "Heritage Bicycles"
That seems like a good location. Lots of bicycle traffic on both Lincoln and Southport, and it's an affluent neighborhood.
I'll have to check it out once you're open.
AWESOME! The windows look even better now! We put the first bike off the Heritage line in the other window and some Stumptown coffee as well.
If you guys are on Facebook you can keep up to date with posts on our Fan Page. Please spread the word.
We will also be projecting movies in the next few weeks from the parking lot onto the side of the building...all bike related.
