Midwest Cyclery was opened in 1958 by Al Wenzel, under the name Western Tire. Originally located on Hale Street in Wheaton, the shop moved to West Front Street in 1965. Later, the name changed to Midwest Cyclery Store.
In 1980, Doug, Tom and Helen Jones took ownership, and began doing business as Midwest Cyclery. The store moved to its current location at 117 East Front Street - still in downtown Wheaton - in 1994. Tom passed away in 2021 leaving Doug to run the shop and Helen running the office. Midwest Cyclery is proud to be a part of Historic Downtown Wheaton and prouder still of the store's long tradition of service, reliability and value.
