Bike farm maybe? I can't say enough nice things about Metropolis. Some things are better left to the pro's. I think the CCC might have open bike stand nights... at least they used to.

Glad to hear you're basically OK Jim. Stay safe out there and if you need anything don't hesitate to let us know. I've got a single-speed you can borrow if you fit a 58cm.
