Good shops?

Hey guys,

I'm looking to get my motor and forks refreshed this winter and I'm looking for a reputable shop in the chicago area. Also, I'm looking for a shop/store to purchase a helmet, rearsets, clipons, etc. I hate ordering off line.

There are a few places you could look...Chicago Performance, or Safety First (though not exactly local, he can still help/hook you up).
