So who is your go-to online bike parts retailer?

I used to buy mostly from Performance, but I haven't bought anything from them since they went bankrupt or whatever.

I just bought a new chain for my SS and bought it through Amazon.  I just don't get the same warm fuzzy feeling buying from Amazon that I used to get buying regularly from Performance or other online bike stores.

Do you have a favorite?

I generally will go through Excel Sports Boulder.  I need a chain, too, but have to get above $100 to get free shipping, so I am trying to figure out all the little things I need right now.

Anymore I go to my friends shop and she orders me what I need if she doesn’t have it. I got my Garmin through Nashbar because they had a bundle package on sale my friend couldn’t touch the price on.  She did look it up & told me so but I did go to her first.

In the past I bought from Price Point.  Performance bought them.

I used to buy from Nashbar.  Performance bought them.

When I was into MTB's I did a lot of business with Jenson USA

Now I just search for the product I want and follow the leads.

LBS much as possible, but I use Performance, Competitive Cyclist, Jensen USA, Colorado Cyclist. Performance shorts are great.

What do you think of Jensens website?  It sure is awkward on my phone.  

They are somewhat local and I have been in their LBS but have never purchased anything through them online.

I like it, but I always shop on my computer, I never use my phone. Never had an issue ordering from them.

I bought what I could from LBS. He just retired. Waiting for new shop to open in August and see what they will be like. I do get some things from Amazon. More so recently when John was in the process of thinning his inventory.

Tree Fort Bikes, since my local LBS closed several years ago.

I bought some tires for my daughter's bike.  One came through with a cut in the sidewall - somebody opening a box with a sheetrock knife (not me) - and the other one blew off the rim it was so loose.  Clearly a manufacturing issue.

I contacted them, I sent them a picture of the sidewall cut and they instantly gave me full credit for both tires.  I turned around and bought two more tires from them which were, of course, more money but I was happy to pay the difference for the better tire.

They also have a price match feature on their website.  If you find a valid lower price from a competitor, you give them the info.  After a day or so they validate it and you get the lower price.

Been liking them of late.  Performance/Nashbar remain popular.  Never Amazon or eBay.  Usually PBK gets a shot too.  Often first to the manufacturer, and then to those others.

We're down to 1 LBS on the 20-mile highway I'm near between Baltimore and Annapolis and none within a few miles off the highway.

So, I got my bike and some other stuff there and will try to give them some business from time to time.

Otherwise, I'm getting stuff from Amazon.
