Where to buy tubulars in NYC?

Anyone know bike shops in NYC (preferably uptown) that stock tubular tires? my local shop doesn't seem to carry many and I"m impatient. My wheels arrived from China much faster than I expected! Don't want to wait to order some online!

SBR, over on 58th right off 7th Ave going west. They also have TUFO tubular gluing tape if you want to avoid "gluing" the tires instead.

thank you! my lbs hooked me up big time and gave me two tires for free. i bought the velox tape and it SUCKS! it's sticky enough but all the reviews I read were right. you just can't remove the tape without it tearing a million times. All the reviews say the tufo tape you can pull in one shot with no problems.

I'm a tape fan. these are my first tubulars and I got a flat today. I hit a gouged out chunk of road on the nyc century and blew my rear tire out. I rode it on the flat for a mile and ahalf to the subway then when I got off the train i rode it another mile and a half home. I loved how when it flatted i heard the air come out but lost no control of my bike whatsoever. Tubulars rock!
