I don't live in SF, but a friend does and I recently looked up bike shops and bike coops for her. Maybe they can be of use to you:

If you happen to go over to Berkeley, you can also find places there (The Missing Link is one)(it's nearby the Shattuck BART Station).

You might also be able to find some places in Santa Cruz, if/when you are down that way.
