Has anyone ordered stuff from bikeman.com?? Just wondering how the ships within 3 days stuff actually works out - just trying to get a feel for the site and how long it acutally takes to get parts from them.

I've had no complaints with any orders I've made from them. Plus, they've sent free bikeman stickers.
I've delt with them on-line and at their brick and mortar store here in Maine; they're good folks to do business with.

Thanks for the responses, I've used both performance and nashbar and they are just fine, however bikeman has a much greater selection of parts for a build without breaking the budget. I think I will give bikeman a try.

I ordered some da 7700 hard to find brake parts from them. I was very pleased.

They sell the Brooks B18 "lady" saddle that my wife wants for less than I've found anywhere else. They do have a lot of small parts, including some that I've looked everywhere else for. I guess I'll give them a try. You can get good deals on their auctions, too. I saw a White Industries single speed freewheel go for less than $30.

They have excellent communication. The day after I placed my order, they sent me an email that one of the parts was back ordered and wanted to know if I wanted to wait for the full order or ship the in stock items immediately. The back ordered item was a rarely ordered part (campy rear derailleur barrel adjuster), so I wasn't upset that it wasn't in stock.
