    I've got a really good relationship with a LBS and I always try to support them first but when they can't help I've purchased from Nirve plus these sites...

    Bike World USA

    Bike Parts USA
    http://www.bikepartsusa.com/

    Dans comp. Although a bmx store it's a good source for cool pedals, chanrings and a few other things.

    J&B Importers. It's wholesale only but you can browse their catalog and have your LBS do the ordering.

    I have to agree with what Randy said, I always try to deal with my LBS. It just so happens that the owner of that LBS is the husband of the owner of bikeworldusa.com (Debbie).

    All I can say about Debbie at bikeworldusa is that she puts in an incrediuble amount of hours a week to make sure that all customers get exactly what they want in very short order. They are still packing orders at 1 AM some days. Customer satisfaction is their #1 priority. And they have an unbelievable inventory.

    As I stated it in another thread, you will not find better people to deal with anywhere than you will dealing with bikeworldusa.

    It's really cool that you guys are supporting your local bike shops! I run a local bike shop in my town that has been around since 1936. If you don't support them than they WILL go away. And plus it makes you feel better too. I always have supported the local guys, you may spend a little bit more but usually they don't get ya for shipping. Troy

    Another plug for Debbie at Bike World USA.

    I bought a set of 26" x 2.125" white walls with brick tread for $29 shipped...to Texas. That's cheaper than my LBS!

    As always she's quick to respond and extremely friendly.

    I try to use my LBSs as much as possible but none of them carry everything I'm looking for, although I have one LBS
    http://www.beyondbikes.com/ that's an internet superstore.

    These guys carry some hard to get ahold of stuff on the cheaps especially older OPC items, but sometimes take awhile to ship.

    For newer bike stuff I use these 2 alot, very fast shipping and good-to-great prices

    http://www.jensonusa.com/

    http://www.pricepoint.com/

    These guys are also very good

    As always there's Nashbar, but I think they've slid on inventroy of late

    I recently ordered a few sets of grips and a kinda-hard-to-find 26x1 3/8 white wall tire from Bikeworld USA. I was a bit apprehensive about customs and shipping, etc but my stuff arrived lightning fast (about week from NY to Montreal, QC) and everything was perfect. I didn't even get charged any customs or duties.

    Debbie is awesome. Very good customer service!
    I highly recommend ordering from Bike World USA!

    Experience with Questionable On Line Parts Seller

    Several months ago (Mid May 2007) I was searching for a few parts to finish my Western Flier Triple Tandem Custom. I found StreetLowrider.com and the website showed the parts I needed. I placed an order, which was confirmed by an automated e-mail, and waited. And Waited. And Waited. Every time I checked my order status online it showed "Pending" if I tried to call the voice mail answered and said the "mailbox was full". Nobody responded to e-mail or calls at any time of day. On June 20th, I was so frustrated I sent an e-mail in attempt to cancel the order, I received no reply. Imagine my surprise when on July 10th a partial shipment showed up on my doorstep! I sent more e-mail and made more calls to no avail. I couldn't even obtain a return authorization. Then, on July 23rd, I got an e-mail thanking me for my order and stating the balance had been shipped! Three days later more stuff showed up - a total of $150+ worth of stuff I had ended up buying through my LBS. To this date Streetlowrider still does not return e-mail and the voice mailbox is "full" - Anyone else been screwed by these guys?

    You've been warned!

    Are there any "old" parts suppliers?

    Seems everything is very recent.. are there any parts suppliers that deal in the 70s on back?
