Anyone know of Surly Dealers in Wisconsin/N.Illinois

I've been hearing great things about Surly Steel framed bike (Cross-Check/LHT)
But when I checked the dealer link on Surly Web, the local (Madison Wisc) bike dealers are no longer carrying Surly)
Can anyone tell me of dealers in the Southern Wisconsin/N. Illinois-Chicago area that currently carry Surly bikes so I could audition one?

thanks!

I am going to go to my Favorite LBS and ask if they can order Surly. If they can then I will have to decide which one, the LHT or th Crosscheck.

Any LBS that deals with QBP (Quality Bike Products), which is most of them, should be able to order Surly products.

EDIT: Trying out a Surly will be rather difficult as they are mostly sold as frame sets. The Cross Check comes in a full bike package, but it is the only one that does.

I was in the Schwinn dealer in Waukegan IL today and saw a Surly. I had no idea what it was, but I did see one.
