    I have purchased from them before. I consider them a good option to Canada since they charge a flat $20 shipping which is better than a lot of other sites where the shipping starts at over $30 and goes up from there.

    I just bought something from them this past week for the first time and I gotta say they're excellent. I agree that their website could use some work but they had the best pricing by far on a few items I was looking for. Ordered very late on Sunday night, shipped out on Tues and FedEx delivered today (Fri).

    I had a problem that was NOT really their fault. I bought some wheels in good faith, and they were shipped and arrived promptly. It turns out the manufacturers description was not quite correct, so they sent me a prepaid pickup tag for the old wheels, and then charged me just the difference for the newer upgraded ones, and then shipped at no charge.

    It is because of my good experiences with them, that I just purchased a Park truing stand this morning, for a good price I might add.

    Thanks for the replies. Legit. Purchased Paul levers from them, arrived fairly quick, good communication. Will buy from them again for sure.

    Modern Bike

    I recently bought a Shimano derailleur, some XT brake pads, fluid and a bleed kit from them. They had the best prices on everything except the derailleur. I asked them about this, and they gave me a discount on the derailleur that almost matched the lowest prices elsewhere online.

    They sent my package out and omitted one set of brake pads. I emailed them about this, and they sent out the missing set right away.

    Overall, I am pleased with their inventory, prices and customer service.
