Help wanted

Here at GoodSpeed we are starting to accept applications for the 2015 season. Stop by either store for an application. No experience necessary, just a positive attitude and a good work ethic(we’ll teach you the rest).

We are also looking for one person to fill a full time assistant manager role. You do not need to have experience in the industry to apply. If you’re interested you should stop by the Homewood store to talk with us and drop off a resume(and depending on what time of day, enjoy a beer).

While winter is well underway with record snow fall we are thinking forward for spring. This means all of our remaining winter inventory has to go to make room for the new stuff. There’s tons of clothing from Gore, Mavic, and Bontrager at a minimum of 10% off with some select products up to 90% off! This includes jerseys, jackets, shorts, bibs, tights, shoes and some helmets.

Get some winter gear while you can use it and grab some summer clothing at a sweet discount!

We will be closed from December 25th until January 1st.

Thanks to all of our customers who support us, we are lucky to have you!

Have a wonderful holiday season and we will see you in 2015!

As the weather cools off we look forward to the coming snow so we can ride our precious fat bikes. Fat bikes are a blast to ride year round but they really shine when the snow falls. Since most of you haven’t ridden a fat bike or aren’t sure if they’re worth the asking price we’ve gone ahead and set a couple aside as demo bikes for you.

Come in, borrow a Trek Farley 8, and take it out and get it dirty(or snowy).

As far as fat bikes go, we also have the Farley 6 in stock in all sizes. We have a couple Salsa Beargrease Carbon’s and we are expecting our Salsa Blackborow’s any time now. Salsa product will only be at our Homewood store. There are Trek Farleys at both stores.

It is coming, but not on HBO anytime soon. Even if it were, everyone will die due to the lack of Gore-Tex and Windstopper fabrics in their clothing.

Since winter is coming to a Chicago suburb near you, I would recommend stopping by our Homewood store and checking out our latest shipment of Gore clothing.

Winter sucks. Gore clothing will make it suck less.


Labor Day has come and gone, marking the beginning of the Chicago area bicycle shop’s off season. It will get cold. It will get dark early. We will have warm cycling clothes. We will have bright lights. We will have things for you to ride bikes inside. We will have bikes you can ride outside.

We just won’t be here on Monday.

Starting Monday September 8 our hours for BOTH stores will be as follows:

Sunday, Monday: Closed
Tuesday – Friday: 10AM – 6PM
Saturday: 10AM – 5PM

If these hours don’t work with your schedule, give us a call and we can schedule a time that does work.


Since Salsa has and Trek will soon release their entire 2015 catalogs, we thought we’d celebrate by putting all 2014 bikes on sale. 15% off across the board, if it’s a 2014 model from any company we stock, it’s on sale.

Trek has already release some 2015 bikes and we have some in stock to check out. We have a couple bikes from their brand new Emonda series of road bikes as well as some new FX hybrids and Dual Sports.

Stop by either our Homewood or Calumet City stores to see what’s in stock!
