shop in san francisco

Commuting brothers and sisters, I'm shipping my bike to San Francisco and need a recommendation of a shop to receive it. I don't really need them to assemble it just receive and keep it there until I get in next Wednesday. Ideas?

Try calling Citizen Chain at 415-796-2925. They're a small shop and can probably accommodate you. Tell them the guy from Chain-L gave you their name.

Great idea - from their website I never would have known there are ACA member shops! I also didn't know about that hostel - great find, thanks!

I would call the Caltrain Bike Station and see if they can accommodate you. One big advantage that they have is that they are close to public transit so it is easy to get there.
