Santana Dealer in Southern California?

Bud's Bike Shop has turned into Jax, and they do not seem at all interested in servicing our tandem (and unable to order parts). Does anybody have any recommendations for a tandem friendly bike shop? ...preferably in Orange County, but LA and SD are okay as well.

When I went to Buds and found Jax instead they did not want to talk Santana either (they are solely a Trek dealer) but one employee clued me in on the following which is a new Santana dealer. The owner, Hrach, rides a Santana Beyond and has at least 5 Santana on the floor. He is a nice guy.
Velo Pasadena Inc
2562 E Colorado Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91107 phone (626) 304-0064

I am from the San Diego area and the Trek Superstore in La Mesa (suburb of San Diego) is the local Santana dealer down here and where we bought our new Santana (due in about a week now). Talk to Larry or Matt
Trek Superstore, La Mesa
8495 Fletcher Parkway, La Mesa, CA 91942 Phone: (619) 668-8787
They also have a location in Vista (just east of Oceanside) but not certain they have Santana tandems at that location.

You can call Santana, (800) 334-6136, and they will give you dealers nearby you.
