Re-Cyclery in San Rafael

Re-Cyclery Bike Thrift Store
Anyone checked this out? I'm heading in that direction today and I was curious as to whether or not it was worth stopping by. I've gathered bits and pieces from other sites and it seems like they have a fairly decent selection of budget parts.

Lots of parts, lots of bikes of varying quality. Fair prices and money goes to a good cause. I bought a few odds and ends there and got a great deal on a 80's era Fuji road bike for around $80 in excellent condition. It's Cash or check only though. It's funny that their stock can vary depending on season and demand. More people cycling, less stock; donation time, more stock.

Wow, cool. I love places like that. I went to one in Portland which I believe is called The Re-Cyclery as well. An entire wall of drop bars interlocked, a floor of full bikes (including a 3Rensho road bike!), lots of frames all about, buckets of parts... A bit overpriced, but fun.

Pretty good place, you can find a lot there. Good prices, as someone said money goes to a good cause.

Awesome, I didn't get a chance to drop by the other day but I'm heading out today. I'll update with a review and maybe some cell phone pics when I get home.
