Cool Bay Area Gear Directory

Hello Barfettes and Barfers!

I've created a list of places for us to buy gear in the SF Bay Area.
http://www.gearchic.com/locals

I've also updated my directory of manufacturers that make the most women's protective gear, and online stores that sell a good selection too.
http://www.gearchic.com/geardirectory

To all the Ladies and Gentlemen, if you know of any other places that carry a decent selection of gear in general, I'd be happy to add that to my list(s) too.

Hope this helps and happy Barfing!

Oh wow, this looks great! Thanks for taking the time to make this list up. I didn't know I used to live by a women's only shop in Sac.

Thank you very much for this! Props for mentioning the Daytona Ladystar boots. They are THE best thing a short chick can buy instead of messing with her bike's suspension. I swear by mine. They are also ridiculously comfortable for such a heavy duty protective boot.

And I completely agree. I recommend them everywhere I go. They definitely helped me a lot as well.

Icon Racing jacket

Hey girls, There is a shop in Sac that has an icon racing jacket with armor, brand new for 299.00. I went in there to check things out with a friend of mine. The jacket was too big for me (size large) but was a crazy deal... thought someone else might be interested. Awsome site by the way and hope you all ride safe!!
