…a slammed 130mm stem if he reads the right blogs.
Over here. This guy. Creating jobs. Job creationism.
But seriously, if you live in Chicago and aren’t going to Tati Cycles I don’t know what to do with you.
One, doesn’t have open hours that I’m aware of. Two, he’s a bit of an esoteric weirdo - and I mean that in the best possible way. Three, intentionally lives as a false identity in the bike industry/interweb sphere - which I personally find off-putting. I suspect eventually it’ll come out that either he’s been 100% honest about his racing past or it’s been entirely made up.
Anyway, interesting guy/shop/ethos. But as soon as you think you’ve figured any of that out, it does a 180.
Those three reasons are exactly why Tati is the best bike shop that may or may not actually exist.
