Others like Village Pedaler off of Randall in S Elgin, Bicycle Heaven in Geneva, or Lucky Brake up in Crystal Lake.

Ride around the area, dig around on the net. Lots of good folks to help out.
I've actually been to most of them (I live in Elgin and work in Geneva so I pass by most of them). And in the summer I did some leisurely rides with some people out of Mill Race, and that was always fun. I'll have to hit up Lucky Brake and Wheel Werks up in Crystal lake to check them out.

That was Arlington Heights, and they were there for about a year. I thought it was a branch of the original store, not the original store in another location.
