About Heritage Bikes: website Their commitment is first and foremost to customer satisfaction, but they also emphasize eco-friendly transportation and local manufacturing and are proud to be the first completely Chicago-made bike since Schwinn production left the city in the ’70s. Heritage is a mash-up of two concepts and cultures that really go hand in hand: bikes and coffee. If you’ve never thought to pair the two, don’t worry, they’re there making sense of it from 7am to 7pm, seven days a week. Whether you’ve come in to fix a flat, to grab a latte or a new Yakkay helmet, they are available to make you feel at home in Chicago’s original bike café..
