What brings you to The Chainlink?
We are an mobile bike shop servicing bikes in your home since 2003. Since I started my first Chicago bicycle shop back in 2003, peoples lives, including my own, have become busier. Hauling your family's fleet of bikes to a local shop isn't easy or convenient. Brick and mortar shops are something people don't have the time or money for. Bikes and parts are typically bought online with no friendly place to turn to for installation or maintenance. 3rd Coast solves all of those issues with more affordable pricing, full service, and personalized care right at your doorstep.

About me:
Marc Taylor -Owner: When I am not fixing bikes, I love to race, tour, and ride with my family. I have raced over 7 years with Wheelfast Racing and more recently Athletes By Design. With two children, racing and touring have taken a temporary back seat to the family. Today, I'm a retired high school Psychology and History teacher and I am very excited about growing my involvement in the cycling community and photography. These pics were taken on my self-supported 2015 Alpine bicycle tour.
