I remember back in the day (like 11 years ago) I would buy off JensonUSA(?) and PricePoint, but I think Pricepoint closed unfortunately. Then college and the career started, which also put a pause on everything. Which sites are you all going to to purchase parts? I am in need of a fork, seatpost, and headset. would it be better to see deals at the LBS?

I buy most of mine via amazon.com. There are more options, but with my budget Amazon is fair.

It's Amazon, EBay, and Craigslist for me.

Jenson and Western Bike Works.

I only use Amazon when required as I don't typically find them as cost effective.

I buy mostly from JensonUSA, Universal Cycles, and Amazon. Larger purchases from the Jensen and Universal, smaller orders from Amazon.

you can get good prices from Europe, but you have to be willing to wait and the potential for extra tariffs.
Most of my parts are from either Jensen or Competitive Cyclists

Chain Reaction Cycles. They are always good for me. I just pick the shipping option that is not DHL.
