That is the good news, the bad news is that the new purchaser, speed-sport.com won't do same day service. So I guess I'm still taking my business to Barry in SF.

Vinnie,

There's a town called Dublin between the East Bay of San Francisco and Sacramento, and I think Arlen Ness' shop is in Dublin too.

I've been meaning to visit that store. I travel to Vacaville every so often for projects at Travis AFB, and I've timed it wrong the last two or three trips.

Is it worth stopping at?

It was his wife & sons side project
good idea but that floor space can be used for a bike with way more mark up

i was hoping they would make some parts for us (thats where i bought my GT)
