Any C&Vers in San Jose?

Hi guys and girls!

I'm looking to get a frameset from a guy in San Jose, but he won't ship (not sure why). I'm in the Phoenix area of Arizona, so I can't reasonably drive there.

Anyone know the area well enough to recommend a bike shop that he can take the frameset to, if I buy it?

Any other recommendations?

Many thanks!

Supposedly bloud in the facilitators list (sticky at top of C&V forum), but I haven't seen him around (ever?). A couple in the Bay area, but not sure if they will do San Jose or not.

Bloud is a good friend of mine! He is still around! Send him a PM, and maybe he can help you! Good luck!

Cupertino Bike Shop would be my first recommendation. BF member Frantik is in SJ, as is -holiday76. I don't know if either would be willing to facilitate but might be worth a PM. I live an hour away in Berkeley and have in-laws in SJ, but I'm in London at the moment and won't be back in the bay area until this weekend. Good luck.
