    Best Place to buy parts.

    Hey all New to the seen, I just picked up a beat up Specialized hard tale that needs work but Im at a loss as to where to find parts locally or online (Canadian sites) ive been directed to JensonUSA but I'm leary purchasing from the US (with our dollar and duties). Im hunting down a new set of forks and kijiji isnt the most helpful being that its a 26r and the local shop has what i think are some crazy prices for rockshox (xc 30 $220 and xc32 $330) Any Recommendations from riders in south west Ontario?

    thanks in advance

    Try Pinkbike and MTB parts finder on FB. Shocks can be tricky to buy new. You never know how they have been treated or maintained. Anything goes wrong, and you will be into enough money that it may not be worth going used. Many of the better shocks will be about that much used. Those seem like reasonable prices.

    I've had good success with Jenson and a place out west, TBS.

    Mountain Bike Parts for Less - Shop TBS Bike Parts, Canada

    Jenson was pretty good, before the dollar went for a sh!t. There are a few issues with some of their suppliers not allowing shipments into Canada... Fox, Ibis... The Canadian distributors control the market and should be punished for their underhanded practices...

    1,522 in Canada. Chain Reaction is still the best bet with the weak dollar.

    Agreed, always try your LBS first. I went to mine to inquire about the price for a Specialized Command Post dropper and walked out with one that they had just swapped off of a new bike for $50.

    Failing that, I second MEC and Chain Reaction.
