    LBS recommendation in the South Bay?

    Hi,

    Does anyone have a LBS recommendation in the South Bay Beach cities area? Of course there are the chains (Helen's, Performance, Bikecology, REI, etc.) as well as a few well known independent shops (Ted's in MB, etc.) but does anyone have firsthand experience with any of them?

    I would mainly be taking in my road bike (Cervelo RS) for some occasional maintenance, etc.

    Ted's in Manhattan Beach has done a great job any time I've had to take one of the two bikes in there for TLC

    Thanks for your input everyone. Sounds like Ted's is the winner. I'll check them out.
