Good Portland LBS for Assembly and Check-up?

I'll be flying into Portland ahead of my Astoria -> San Francisco ride. I'll have my bike boxed up for the flight and I'd like to take it to a good Portland LBS for assembly and, more importantly, one final check-up to make sure it's ready for the journey.

Any Portland riders here who have a good shop that is well versed in the pre-tour once-over?

I'd imagine bike shops in Portland aren't uncommon but i'll gladly take a word of mouth recommendation.

It will be hard to go wrong. If you won't have a car, Velo Cult is only a couple of blocks from the Max Red Line, and you can have a beer while you wait.

Bike Gallery, River City are two big ones, but there are a myriad of other shops that come well recommended.

Here is a fairly comprehensive list of shops:
