    Santa Cruz Nomad - where to buy

    Anybody has a recommendation on where to buy the frame online or in SoCal?
    Sounds like lead times are pretty long anywhere, but I mainly concerned about getting a good deal.
    Anybody has experience with this?
    Thx

    Boutiquebikes.com are some great people and they post a lot on the boards.\

    Speedgoat is an online seller, you will not find many!

    Colorado Cyclist. They are an online dealer and do a nice prep on the frame before shipping. I believe they are having a sale right now on frames (phone only) with Nomads in-stock.

    Can't go wrong with Ryan at Cambria Bike either (Ext. 2215), great service and they will price match.

    Have you tried Helen's in Santa Monica (I think it's www.helenscycles.com)? The service depends on which of the sales people you get...some of them really love bikes and give honest opinions and some are more sales-minded. For the most part, most of the people there are honest though and I think they tend to weed out the more salesy ones.

    They usually have a bunch of Blur LT's and Superlights in stock, but can't remember seeing any Nomads. You need to go upstairs to see the more boutique brands. I don't think they do mail order though.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks all for the replies.
    I had a couple "experiences" with Helen Cycles (both in S.Monica and Manhattan Bch) and I think I'll stay out of that shop.

    Bike Co. seems a good and honest shop.
    I was hoping somebody could comment on direct experience with Speedgoat and Cambria
