ABOUT US » Declaration of Principles

Declaration of Principles“‘I’ll provide the people of this city with a daily paper that will tell all the news honestly. I will also provide them with a fighting and tireless champion of their rights as citizens and as human beings.’ Signed, Charles Foster Kane.”

Citizen Kane had his principles; at Citizen Chain, we have ours. Citizen Chain promises to provide:

  • A bike shop that will treat every customer with respect and quality service, regardless of their level of biking experience or the price or make of their bike.
  • A fighting and tireless champion for bicycles: as a great method of transportation, the source of a unique culture, and most importantly, as the beloved friends of their owners.
  • Proper resources and safety that give every bicycle and bicyclist the opportunity to live up to their potential.
  • The tools, education, and opportunity for every rider to find their One Bike, no matter how long it may take.
  • Honesty, for both the rider and bicycle, about what can and cannot be done.
