I need a new LBS in Albuquerque!
Hey friends. So, I used to get all my wrenching done at Broken Spoke over off of Alameda and Corrales, but apparently Rob has closed his doors for good and even gone so far as to shut down the email address he had told me would continue to work were those aforementioned doors ever to close. Sooo, I'm looking for a new shop, preferably one with service prices that fit in the range of a student. I've been to the shop on campus before, but they have a pretty big backlog and I'm not really willing to let a student do this kind of work on my bike (the derailleur hanger needs a straightening.)
I've heard good things about Cycle Cave and Kickstand...are there any others I should know about? We've got a lot of shops here in Burque, but Broken Spoke was the first one I walked into that gave me that groovy LBS-love vibe that gets a shop my repeat business, and now I just feel kind of lost...
