A 1-and-a-half-year-old newcomer to the busy retail area of Milwaukee Street in Wicker Park, Copenhagen Cyclery sells Danish bikes by Velorbis (who makes most of their stock) in addition to Italian Abici bikes, Dutch Batavus cycles, and Danish Larry vs Harry models. While most of these high-quality commuter bikes clock in over the $900 mark, they also carry less expensive accessories including bags, baskets, and wall-mounted bike racks.
Velorbis bikes are designed in Denmark and manufactured in Germany, where they're constructed from powder-coated, rust-proof steel frames with Brooks leather seats and grips. The company explains, "All of our low maintenance bicycles are specially built to resist the tough Scandinavian weather where snow, frost and salt constantly threaten to attack every single component of your bicycle." Perfect for Chicagoans.
If you're not in Chicago, Copenhagen Cyclery's website has online ordering and national delivery. All the brands mentioned above can be purchased online, but accessories are for sale in-store only.
