      Hi Craig. I forwarded your note to Ben at the shop. He’s the best at restorations/vintage stuff. -admin

      PS. 38″ standover? wow

    Saw that you guys come highly recommended. Wanted to develop a relationship with a local bike shop than a large chain.

    With that being said, I unfortunately scuffed up one of my Ultegra levers (left side). I need to get some replacement parts installed and wondered how much labor would be.

    The parts that need to be installed are listed below:

    Side question. How much would you guys charge to install brake pads

      Bert — Did you get through to the mechanics OK? Just following up. Call 301 441 2928, and ask for Ben, John, the other John, or Paul.

    Hi Proteus!
    Recently I came upon an advertisement for a 2009 Felt F5 Team Garmin edition frame (http://www.geartrade.com/item/382848/felt-f-series-team-edition-argyle-frameset) Obviously the advertisement looks too good to be true, and the seller has yet to respond to me. However, this got me interested in finding a team edition frame. I looked online and saw that your shop is a licensed Felt Dealer, and I was wondering if you would be able to point me in the right direction (if there is one) of finding a frame like this, or where to find other team edition frames. I’m not sure if they are sold like regular production frames, but after seeing a few advertisements, it piqued my interest. Thanks so much for your help!
