( n + 1 )

\ən, ᵊn\  \ˈpləs\ \ˈwən  \

While the minimum number of bikes one should own is 3, the correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned.
You always need 1 more.



( n+1 ) is the final piece in a vision for a third place, located in Rocket Bicycle Studio in Verona, WI. We have always envisioned a bike shop with space to fuel up on coffee or cap off a great bike ride with a beer. Or maybe you’re just looking for a new place to hang out with your friends.

We want everyone in the community and all those who travel from afar, to feel at home in our space at n+1. Enjoy a cool and hip experience while you sip a perfectly made cup of coffee or one of our rotating tap beers. If time is of the essence swing in and take something from our grab-&-go area.

Scroll down to meet Jessica and Peter and read their story.

We carry a very simple menu offering hand-brewed coffee, espresso, espresso + milk, juices, fizzy waters, as well as pastries and teas.

Coffee is roasted locally by Rusty Dog Coffee. Our single origin coffee offerings will elevate you. We also like caffeine. Our drinks are made with two shots of espresso. We do this to create a more robust taste and texture. Choose from Sassy Cow skim or whole, or upgrade with one of our plant-based milks (Elmhurst 1925) to make it a velvety experience you’ll love. If you want it a little less octane then ask us to pull one shot, or a decaf pull. Venture HERE to see our full coffee and not coffee, menus.

Our scrumptious bakery goods in the morning, hand-made from Rosie’s Bakery, will kick your day off in good form. You’ll find scones to cookies to our signature farmhouse muffin made with Rusty Dog Coffee grounds infused into the creamy center. Weekends we will add on our raised bakery goods - donuts and The Big One (an extra super large cinnamon roll).

Evenings will carry a variety of beer from simple and light ales to seriously thick and kickin’ stouts. They will be a taste sensation. Head over to UnTappd for our up to date menus tap beer and grab&go/grab&stay bottles, bombers and cans menu. UnTappd will allow you to follow our beer menu and any events we are hosting.

who are we

Jessica Laufenberg & Peter Oyen had a vision of a third space for their clientele of the bike shop and endurance training studio. Coffee and beer in a cafe bar setting seemed to be natural. Since 2010 they kept planning their vision, redesigning it, refining it. In the winter of 2017 there was the opportunity to relocate their bike studio. The timing was just right and it finally came to fruition with a grand opening relocation at 507 Bruce Street in August of 2018. Jessica has been in Verona since 2006 (Jessica creating and starting from scratch SBR Endurance), adding the bike shop in 2009 (Rocket Bicycle Studio with Peter) and then doubling their space to allow SBR (with and additional owner and coaches) to have their own designated space to coach and train endurance athletes, Rocket Bikes to expand their studio floor and bike fitting / performance lab and ultimately add space for a coffee and beer cafe. Read a short story about their relocation in the Verona Press.
