    Check out West End Bikes http://www.westendbikes.com/fsweall.html Last time I was there several years ago, they had a nice little collection of vintage mountain bikes. They were a big Ibis dealer as Will Black - Ibis' pro rode out of that shop.

    I like that shop. Their prices are a little high when it comes to maintenance, but they're good people to deal with...very friendly.

    I'm not into the retro scene, but I can see how someone that was would get off in that shop. They have a very extensive museum of older bikes.

    Yep, great collection of vintage bikes and parts.

    Will still works there (I think) and still races cyclocross coming in 9th at the worlds this year in the masters.
