Rans Crankforwards in Milwaukee

Go here.

http://www.northshorewheels.com/

Click on "contact us" and call the cell number. He is in the middle of changing locations and the old store number isn't usually answered.

He has Fusions, Cruzs and Dynamics. Very friendly guy.

He's located on the east side of Milwaukee, near Shorewood.

The Hostel Shoppe, up in Stevens Point, WI, just notified me that they had a number in stock too.

Couldn't find one around here last year.

CF's

Budget Bikes in Madison told me about a month ago that he had one, but he hadn't built it up yet. For me, the Milwaukee store was closest. Glad I went there, Jeff is a real nice guy. Went twice actually. Today I came home with a 07 Cruz.

I work two blocks from Budget Bicycle. Have been in their recumbent and crank forward shop many times. When I've inquired in the past about them stocking RANS crank forwards, I was told that they had done so a couple of years ago and couldn't sell them. So when they finally sold the last one, they went to a policy of where they would special order one if you wanted it, but they weren't going to put any on the floor. So perhaps someone ordered one, or they decided to take a flyer to stock one of them again.

They do have Giant Revive, Giant Suede, and a small company from Iowa (can't remember the name right now) crank forward bikes on their floors. Used to carry the Raleigh Gruv too. And they have the Trek Pure in their Trek shop.

They do stock a number of RANS recumbents.
