    Went into Mission Bicycles the last time I was there, and I loved it.

    The place was well kept, and the people working were really helpful (I forget to get their names, d'oh!) My friends and I browsed the store/chatted for a good half hour. The people were really easy going and nice to talk to, plus they had a pretty decent selection of fixed gear goodies.

    The only thing was that the shop was very small, one of the smallest once that I've been in, but it was very clean inside and out.

    Yeah the people at Mission are super nice (there is also a super cool taxidermy store down the street with a mounted unicorn head). Pedal Revolution also has great customer service, they were super helpful when picking out my frame. I've definitely noticed a bit of pretentiousness from some of the employees at Freewheel. Some of them are really nice, but some are kind of stand offish. They have an awesome selection of high-end steel track frames there though.
