Need help finding local dealer . . .

Does anyone know any LBS that carry Shimano Pro products? Mostly interested in their PLT series of handle bars and stems. Either in the L.A. or O.C. areas.

TIA

I once had a local bicycle store order a Pro product for me. It took only 2days, as Shimano's headquarters is in Irvine.

I called them a few times to get technical advice before buying stuff like the cassettes. They are helpful.

DS,

I called Veloworx and was told they only carry the Vibe series but can order the PLT series. I was hoping to actually see the stuff before buying but I'll have to research how close the vibe is to the PLT and go from there. But I'll still give Shamano OC a call tomorrow.
