    Best place on Internet to buy gear?

    Wow how things have changed! I'm a thirty something coming back to the Mtb scene. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a new Stumpy fsr. I'll be buying the majority of my stuff from my LBS.

    My question is which is the best online place to purchase gear? I know REI, Performance Bike, Nashbar, Jenson USA, Backcounty.com. Missing any?

    Bicycleoutfittersindy.com is an option.

    Disclaimer: I use them as my lbs and ride with their logo on my kit. I do NOT work there. Nor get anything for racommending them.

    their overall prices may not be the lowest, but they do periodically have very good sales on things. Cambria is one I've used in the past. Also Chain Reaction in the UK. Contrary to what you might think, they actually do occasionally beat some US-based places on price even considering they ship from overseas. If you are in the UK or other Commonwealth country, they might be an even better option.

    Look at the top of the mtbr page, and check the "Hot Deals" link. There are several more in there.

    Wiggle.com
    Great prices and low shipping fees even though they are UK based. Here in Canada we also have mec.ca. Great for accessories, clothing, tools etc.

    I frequent Pricepoint, Nasbar, and Jensen USA. One of the three will have a good sale and free shipping promo code. I also check out my LBS for deals and I am not above buying a used but nearly new part from their swag box.
