General Information: Get A Grip Cycles was founded in September 2000. Within a few years, the shop began creating long term relationships with its clients through high end sales, scientific bike fitting techniques, unparalleled customer service and an attention to detail. In March of 2007 Get A Grip Cycles opened the Midwest’s first comprehensive fit studio on Fulton St. in Chicago’s exclusive West Loop neighborhood.
Get A Grip Cycles currently stocks a broad range of products, showcasing the best of what the industry has to offer. They maintain a presence on the competitive circuit with road, mountain, x-terra, and triathlon teams, as well as partnerships with local clubs, teams, and training facilities. The staff has attended every bike fit certification currently offered, and through years of hard work and thousands of fittings has refined the best ideas from these into a process which is unique to the shop.
Get A Grip Cycles is also proud to be one of the founding members of the Master Bike Fitters Association.

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
