We’re very humbled and honored that we have again been selected as the Best Bike Shop in the Illinois Times 2015 & 2016 Best of Springfield!
The Illinois Times: “The folks at Ace genuinely love bicycles and bicycling of all kinds, from racing to leisurely spins around town. They pride themselves on BMX, which is too often forgotten in today’s world of triathlons, mountain biking and stage racing. With a used inventory that turns over in a hurry, they always have just the right bicycle whatever your needs or price range might be, and if they don’t have it in stock, they’ll get it in a hurry. Most repairs are completed overnight. But what we really love about Ace is the Monday night rides that depart from the shop and take riders along the area’s best cycling routes. No one gets left behind and there are at least two mechanics on the outings that start in March and end in September. It’s a great way for neophytes to learn the finer points of riding in a group without fear of getting left in the dust.”
I am very lucky to have a staff that love bikes and cycling! With out them giving up their nights and weekends we wouldn’t have won this award. In addition to my amazing staff, I want to say “thank you” to all our great customers for being part of our family for the past 60 years!
