Hi,

Where is the best place to buy bike parts & tools online, price, service, shipping charges, etc?

Thanks

Hi Tim,

I haven't tried a lot of places yet, but found Amazon will often have the best prices among the small group I check. Amazon's free shipping program is usually what makes the difference. I wish they had more choices though. When I can't find it on Amazon I often check Jensen, http://www.jensonusa.com/ or Nashbar, http://www.nashbar.com/ and eBay is okay for some stuff too.

And of course, when I have to match something up carefully I fall back on my favorite LBS or local hardware store.

I was going to say craigslist.org but after seeing the news the other day I really do not think I will be shopping there anymore Sad . When they change something to make it safer then I may go back.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Don't forget eBay. I second the Pricepoint.com nomination. Some people have bashed their customer service when there is a problem, but I've never had an issue (yet). They have really low prices, and they have so many things available because it seems as if they are a "middle man" for a lot of companies and have things drop shipped to you. I got a great deal just last month on a brand new 2009 Rock Shox SID TEAM front fork from them. Saved over $250 compared to other places online for it.

I really have begun to like Universal Cycles online too. they will price match or beat other prices you find on other sites.They ship ultra fast and have 2 different warehouses on each end of the U.S. for quick shipping & great customer service.

I have used:
http://www.amazon.com/
http://www.bikepartsusa.com/
http://www.rei.com/ - actually in REI's case, I checked the prices online, and went to the local store.

Google Shopping is a great place to find a particular part or type of part. If you need a crankset, for example...

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&tbm=shop&q=crankset&oq=crankset&gs_l=products-cc.3..0l3.4540.6376.0.6451.8.7.0.1.1.0.135.777.1j6.7.0...0.0...1ac.1.6HCGCqGMups​

There are options to sort by price, brand, category, etc.

I am part of the team at http://www.squarebikes.com. We offer free shipping and try to compete on price on Google so our site should be a good option for you, depending on what exactly you are looking for. Honestly though, just use Google and pick the best deal you can find from a reputable store.

Regards,
Ryan
