Good mechanic/shop in Indianapolis/Carmel area?

Moving to Indianapolis/Carmel area here in 2 weeks.....I do most of my own work on bicycles but needing a good reference for a decent mechanic and or shop to do things i have neither the tools and or time to fix myself.

I know BGI is the main group of stores in the Indianapolis area.....are there any good or well recommended small or independent shops I should also look into?

If you go to BGI, the guys in the downtown store run it like a small boutique, whereas the other stores are larger and run more like typical bike shops.

If you're willing to drive 50 miles west, check out Covered Bridge Cyclery in Greencastle. It's great small bike shop, where the owner does all the serious work himself.

Those are the only ones I know, but here's a link to the local advocacy organization's site. They list all the shops in the area, and if you get involved at any level, I'm sure you can get the straight scoop on the various shops.
