Scoreboard carries popular athletic brands for men and women such as Nike, Puma, A6, Canterbury, and Harrow, along with any gear you need to collectively punish a variety of entertainment-providing orbs and ellipsoids.

The frame-builders at Repartee Gallery have encased pictures, posters, and keepsakes for wall display since 1978. Clients tote in portraits, lucky baseballs, or a child's first parking ticket before sifting through the gallery's extensive selection of frames, glass, and matting options. An expert art-housing architect will assign cost to the project, with prices generally starting at $50, and go to work forming the framing elements neatly around the chosen object. The final product renders a cherished heirloom ready for placement on a wall or mantel, and, like the unwavering fealty of a wookiee sidekick, comes backed by a lifetime guarantee.
iQue Repair?s veteran technicians tend to various models of iPods, iPads, and iPhones with prompt, often same-day repairs and services.

As an extra safety precaution, patrons can register for a two-year unlimited-repair plan, or they can guard against drops and failed hacky-sack demonstrations with impact-cushioning cases. A mail-in program complements the shop?s typical walk-in structure, allowing out-of-towners to have broken electronics refurbished and returned via priority mail.
The staffers at Top Gear Bicycle Shop are competitive road cyclists. They're also cross-country racers. They're also triathletes. So naturally, they stock gear that they can vouch for themselves. Sidi bicycle shoes include adjustable cleats, Velcro straps, and micro-adjust buckles to optimize riding performance. And the shop carries bikes from MBC and Trek, the company that signed cycling legend Lance Armstrong in 1997. Top Gear's certified technicians repair road and mountain bikes alike. They also perform comprehensive tune-ups and even hand build new wheels tailored to the client's riding style, with custom spoke diameters and lacing patterns designed to safely hold a baseball card.
