I order most of my parts and accessories from Modernbike.com. They have a great selection and excellent prices. Plus, they're in Des Moines, IA, which is less than 100 miles away from me--so they have quick shipping.

However, their clothing selection isn't great. I haven't found a 1-stop source for bike clothing.

Agree. I like Modernbike.com.

I also like REI. Great return policy/customer service (useful with clothing) and frequent coupons for 20% off, and an outlet store. High-ish prices, though, without a coupon.

Not sure why you need bike gear for cursing at your wife. Sorry, but we're vicious with typos here.

I use many. Ribble, REI, Competitive Cyclist, Bikewagon, Nashbar/Performance, Trivillage, Modern Bike, AEBike, Art's Cyclery, Jensen... whichever has the best deal on what I'm looking for. I also get a fair amount of stuff via Amazon and sometimes buy-it-now on eBay.

It's the internet, it's not like you're burning gas to get to each store.

My first stop is Google. That will pull up a few possibilities, then I see how some sites I hit frequently do on price (including shipping).

Along with those already mentioned.

Biketiresdirect.com is another good site, sometimes some great sales, but their standard shipping to the east coast can take a week or so.

Niagara Cycle

AEBike.com

Ebay

And I periodically make sure to give business to the LBS (actually 2 of them) for a variety of reasons.

Bottom line, there's not one site that does everything for everybody.

I bought a lot of stuff from performancebike.com when I started back -- reasonable prices and good enough clothes, tools, tubes, patches, etc. But they don't carry the tires I like, so biketiresdirect got some orders. Nowadays I prefer the bibs from voler.com, and harriscyclery usually has my preferred brake pads (Koolstop salmon). Etc., etc.

Make sure you uncheck the "send me lots of email spam" box when you place an order from a new place, or you'll need to set up a separate bike store email account to see what your family and friends send on your main account.

No one has mentioned www.biketiresdirect.com. They sell everything, not just tires.
