    any reason you need someone local? Lots of good options out there that will ship to you if you are looking for something new. If you are looking to have something relaced then I guess I have the answer to my question.

    Is Los Gatos too far? The bike shop on... I forget the name of the street, but it's a small town. Near LG High School, on the same side of the street. I'm sure there are plenty of good ones in San Jose, too, but I don't know any.

    If 37 miles isn't too far, my friend Matt is the chief wrench and wheelbuilder at Aptos Bike Station, just south of Santa Cruz. He's a UBI DT Certified wheelbuilder.
    Tell him CliftonGK1 sent you if you go there, just to freak him out.

    If you can spend the hour+ getting up to Berkeley/Oakland, the guys at Montano Velo are supposed to be the best in the area. They also have plenty of great bikes around to look at and drool over (plus they're next to a good ice cream place, Fentons).
