    Hi all - I was wondering if you could help me out. I'd like to compile a list of NYC bike shops URLs and add it above, post them here and I'll trim as needed. Also give me a note if there's anything interesting (good for vintage, high end, welds, etc...) Thanks! And if you want me to add other area shops give me the state, shop URL, and notes - thanks

    As a matter of fact you can go to every website directory and search for the local NYC bike shops. That will be the best source of information.
