Any Bay Area shops stock Surly Frames?

Maybe this is a longshot....

I'm eager to get my hands on a Surly LHT frameset and wonder is anyone in the Bay Area keeps them in stock?

Thx
Steve

Robinson Wheel Works in San Leandro carries and stocks them. He has a limited size availability, so call ahead. I almost bought one from there.

QBP carries Surly products, so if you can't find any in stock, most any bike shop will be able to get you one.

Also, LHT is good stuff.

Thanks for the help folks!

I'm building out a bike with the help of a local shop... but they can't get the frame from the supplier for a few weeks. If I can get my hands on one, I'll have my bike a little sooner (I'd like to use it for the Tour d'Cure / Napa in early May

Tahn at Willow Glen cycles is building up a LHT "for the floor" right now. I saw it a couple weeks ago and its awesome looking - check 'em out.

San Francisco Cyclery on Stanyan has TONS of Surly stuff on the floor. And they're nice people. They were the only store that had something to actually test-ride when I was shopping for my LHT.

Yep. See my original response, above... couldn't agree more.
I've never been to an LBS more interested in working with the customers and making something happen
Absolutely top-notch. Go there. Now. Or call.
