Artisan Bikes and Coffee: Heritage Bicycles Gets Chicagoans Going

It's no surprise that we're fans of two-wheeling – not to mention community, small businesses...and coffee. So when we found out that Heritage Bicycles – Chicago's original bike café created and run by entrepreneurs Mike and Melissa Salvatore – uses Zipvan to transport their vintage-inspired goods, we were definitely intrigued.

From their first flagship store to the expansion of the Heritage brand to include the kid-friendly Heritage Littles and the coffee-focused Heritage Outpost, Mike and Melissa embrace American-made design and assembly. (Fun fact: Heritage is the first completely Chicago-made bike since Schwinn left in the '70s.) So rest your collapsible helmet, pull up a chair, and take a peek at the little shop that could.
