Good custom SOMA build in Chicago?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Don't have a shop build it for you, build it yourself; you'll be glad you did.

I've heard good things about: UpgradeCycle.com

Bought my frame and fork from them. Built it up myself but this shop prides themselves on service.
