Over 130 Years of History...
Illinois Cycle and Fitness was founded in 1873 when the Voss Bros. purchased the bicycle division of the Duryea Automobile Corp. In the early days the Voss Bros. manufactured their own bikes in their shop on SW Adams Street.
No gym membership is required! Stop making monthly payments to stay in shape at a gym, club or pool. Instead, just ride your bicycle for fun, fitness and transporation. Don't have a bike? You can finance one for less than that membership, and when it's paid off, you'll own your own fitness machine that you can use anytime for free!
Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day
in-mold construction –
Found in helmets, this means that the hard-plastic cover (the painted part) is actually molded to the helmet's liner, not simply taped in place. It's a more durable form of helmet construction.
Travel With Tools - When preparing your bike travel kit, pack all the tools needed to build your bike. And, be sure to pack some spare parts in the event of a breakdown, too. There's nothing worse than taking your bike on a trip only to not be able to ride it because something broke. We recommend bringing spare tubes, a spare tire, patch kit, several spokes, a brake and shift cable, chain pins and a seatpost binder bolt (secures the seatpost in the frame). A nice trick is packing an inexpensive pair of gloves in your tool kit. Put these on for assembly and packing and you'll save yourself a lot of hand scrubbing.
