I heard good things about this shop from the forum and went to check it out since I was visiting SF. The people are very laid back and nice. There is certainly no boutique feel to it. A poor kid walked in with his Miyata road bike...The fork lost one blade...It was hardly attached. I had never seen this in person. Scary!
I went in the used drawer to find a Cinelli stem. They wanted 25$...Too rich for my blood for a used stem that did not have the right washer on the fixing bolt.
It was very refreshing to see a bike shop without carbon crap everywhere. The Vitus road bike in the window priced at 850$ gave me a chuckle...I know it is a hip cool bike...but not that cool.
