Recommend a bike repair shop?
I am getting back into road biking again after a long depature since graduating college (where all the years go). I have a Peugeot (531 Reynolds Aluminum frame) road bike with Campagnolo Athena (non-STI, old school friction gear shifter). It has been sitting in the garage for nearly 10 years (in really good shape with no rust, etc.) and now I am looking for a great bike store to take it to tune it up, any recommendation?
I thought about taking the bike to Mike’s Bike, Performance or even REI to tune it up but I am not sure if they know how to work on older bikes. Also, I am sure that I need to replace the chain, gear/shifter cables, get new tires, have the wheels trued and perhaps have the headset repacked.
Any recommendation on things that I need to have done to get the bike road ready again?
Thanks in advance,
