This for our SoCal contingent: I've been in Orange County for 8 months now, but I've not really scoped out any of the LBSs here. Too busy with other things.
I have a very nice keeper-of-the-flame frame that I want to build up with modern parts (Chorus or Centaur triple Ergo), and I'm not interested in doing the job myself... so I need a recommendation for a good shop locally that would do the job well without costing me more than is reasonable.
SoCal folks--any suggestions?

#1. THE PROBLEM: We have "overshot" the carrying capacity of Earth and are on the edge of "die-off" -- possibly even "die-out". Probably no more than two billion people could be sustained indefinitely.
#2. THE REASON: We (like other animals) are programmed to overshoot in the presence of "exceptional" (more than average) food, water & health care, etc. The net energy derived from fossil fuel that enabled us to produce exceptional food, water, etc. is "peaking" now.
