    Best Campy shop in NYC/Bklyn

    I have a mid 90's Italian frame that i want to build up with campy chorus. I'm near R&A in brooklyn but I'm wondering if anyone recommends a better shop in manhattan or brooklyn?
    Thanks!

    My understanding is R & A is the "premier" shop in Brooklyn. That being said, I hate all bike shops in NYC, except for the tiny neighborhood LBSes, and occasional stops into Bikeworks. Toga on the Island can probably handle your project.

    I'd give Imbert at Master Bike on W 77st a try. He gave me great advice on my recent switch to Campy (or rather mixing Campy with Shimano.) He was a head mechanic at Toga, then set out on his own. He has a strong preference and expertise in Campy stuff. He knows his sh-t!
