Chocolate Spokes Bike Shop

Gregory Crichlow left his architecture job in 2011 to start a bicycle shop in Five Points, a traditionally African-American and Latino neighborhood in Denver. Servicing residents’ bikes keeps the doors open, but hand-building steel frames is what inspires him. Find him at chocolatespokes.com.

Gregory shares a mindset that we can’t help but celebrate. To him, the bike was an equalizer in his life; everyone else had one; in fact, it was, and still is a universal symbol of freedom. And like many of you, he formed a seamless connection with his first “real” bike that is unbreakable. This bond lives on today in the form of Chocolate Spokes. And serving his Denver-based community is just the beginning.
