Wow -- I'd never heard of that shop.

If I was after a Parlee, though, there's Bespoke in San Francisco.

I was just in Roll (Potrero Hill), a service-focused shop. Sam, the main guy there, used to work in Bike Nut and is the go-to guy in the city for lightweight part work, since he has a lot of experience with them from Bike Nut. I asked him if he's planning on going into the business of selling the parts: it's tough because people tend to be really picky about what they want so it's hard to have proper inventory. But I suggested there were enough people looking for weenie builds that it might be a good to advertise his experience. He's also a small-time frame builder. The shop seems very neighborhood otherwise.

What gave him away to some extent was a recall notice hanging in the shop for EE Brakes....

They also had a used bin with parts for sale including some Cinelli Spinaci.... I hadn't seen those since the days of Claudio Chiappucci.
