About The Bicycle Hub


Jim at Store

 THE BICYCLE HUB opened its doors on November 2nd, 2012 in downtown Pecatonica, Illinios. In 2013, more than 2000 people passed through the store. With the Pecatonica Prairie Trail open in 2014 -- which comes from Rockford -- our business increased. And, when the Trail is completed to Freeport, connecting to the Jane Addams Trail, riders will be able to ride from Rockford to Wisconsin (north & west) and beyond.

Mrs. Brechlin




Owner, Jim Brechlin was born in Chicago and grew up in the Rockford, IL area. As a kid, he ran a basement bicycle repair shop for 10 years, before he completed school at the Chicago Musical College of Roosevelt University for composition/performance. Jim has been in the Rockford Symphony Orchestra since 1985, and the Beloit/Janesville Symphony Orchestra since 1987. Jim's wife, Sheila, live just a few miles from the bike-shop.

Jim was a professional chef for 29 years, and returned to his love of bicycles and opened The Bicycle Hub when he recognized the need for low-cost bicycles and repairs.

We directly serve the communities of Pecatonica, Winnebago, Byron, Oregon, Westlake Village, Lake Summerset, Durand, Davis, Lena, Roscoe, Rockton, Freeport, and Rockford. We also serve customers who come from Beloit, Janesville, Monroe, Madison, Milwaukee, and the Chicago area.


We provide that small-town atmosphere which gives the customer a knowlegable and personalized service about bikes. With shops and restaurants, you could enjoy shopping, visiting, or eating while waiting on a repair.

If you would like to up-size, upgrade, refurbish, tune-up, clean-up, totally overhaul, or replace your old bike, Talk to us! We take trade-ins, too.

We're Here for You! 

 Cycling is Fun, Adventurous, and Great Exercise - and doesn't have to be expensive or difficult.
