    Boston area cyclists out there.

    I find it extremely difficult to find cycling bits and bobs down here in Tokyo. Especially clothing being a 6'5 clyde. BUT, my company is sending me to Boston for some training. I will only have a few days in town and need to find a shop with a decent inventory of stuff. Can anyone recommend an LBS maybe in Boston or vicinity. I will be staying in Beverly to be exact. But, do not mind commuting to find somewhere I can go to get what I need.

    Thanks!!

    The REI stores that usually have a good clothing selection http://www.rei.com/cycling

    The Reading store is closest to Beverly

    If you have time to wonder around there are several interesting bike shops around Boston University and Harvard, Harris Cyclery in West Newton is a good stop if not for anything other than meeting everyone's favorite Bike Guru, Sheldon Brown

    As far as shops with inventory I second the Wheelworks recamendation (they have two shops) also Harris cyclery in Newton http://www.sheldonbrown.com/harris/index.html
    As you will be staying in my town I will also tell you about the two worthwhile bike shops on the North Shore: Harborside cycle (in Gloucester) and Seaside cycle (in Manchester by the sea). They are smaller shops but excelent.
