    Canadians in Ontario ordering parts online? Where is good?

    Hey folks. Sometimes I get frustrated with the Canadian distributor system for bicycle parts back ordered for weeks and weeks. Where can I order parts online that is affordable. At least I can search there and if something is in stock, take a gamble.
    :)

    For any online ordering, make sure you are familiar with shipping costs and fees.
    I buy a lot from Ribble and Merlin. Some stuff from PlanetX.
    I try to avoid Chain Reaction because their location based pricing screws Canadians but sometimes they have what you need at the best price.
    Jenson is good when stuff is on sale or it's a non-mainstream item - they have a great inventory.
    Nashbar is good when they have a sale.
    Niagara Cycle is good when you need something weird or odd.

    I don't love Chain Reaction's location-based pricing either (because invariably it means Canadians get hosed). But I still find they have the cheapest price on normal parts, and their new DHL shipping method is pretty great (fast, fairly prices, no suprises).

    To compare, an XT M786 rear derailleur at CRC cost me $77; at canadabicycleparts.com linked above you're looking at $112. The price on an XT 11-36T cassette was pretty much the same for the two vendors ($84) so it does seem a bit random.

    I just ordered road parts from Ribble for the first time, and my stuff arrived in 3 days with no added fees.

    I have used and can recommend:

    Jenson USA
    Bike Nashbar
    CRC/Wiggle
    Ribble
    Merlin
