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.
Milwaukee really has a great variety of shops. Being NW depending on how fast I want something it's W&S, Emory's or REI but Ben's always comes through on my odd ball and vintage stuff and usually gets my service stuff when not a DIY thing. I've probably bought something in every shop in the city at one time or another. From South Shore, Johnson's, Allis, Patio to Extreme I spread it around.
