They were my personal favorite and I was on a first name basis with the owner and all the mechanics there.
But Wheel and Sprocket pretty much saturates the area. and lately, Erik's has been popping up all over the place.
Oh Yeah, sorry I didn’t mention Bikesmiths by UW Milwaukee, I’ve bought a bunch of stuff from them, mostly through their eBay store.
Recently ordered a Sturmey Archer 2sp kickback hub, 3 hours after I clicked buy, the owner shows up on my doorstep with the part.
Turns out his warehouse is only a mile from my house, nice guy, always check their site when what I’m looking for isn’t too vintage.
