Hello, I´m new to this forum and lives in Sweden. Is there anyone out there with a suggestion where to buy bicycle parts online? A place with big catalouge and fast delivering to Europe-Sweden.

Hello and welcome to the forums. I sugest that you buy a bike from you lbs. The 50 -70 that you save is not worth it, because unless you really know how to put together a bike you will just spend that much at you lbs to have them put it all together.
Most of the time you will find that a bike shipped from a onlin store will have problems that the product gets damaged when shipped (bad fedex driver :) lol
I say just get it from a lbs, there you will get much better help and most of the time they will give you free tune-up for some thing like 90 days (that in its self will be worth the extra money if you ride a lot)
Hope this helps some and feel free to post a lot here!

This is part of my webpage. At the bottom are some links to some UK parts suppliers.

I generally try to buy from the LBS even if the prices are higher, just because I like knowing that if I support them now, then they'll be around to answer stupid questions I may have later. But I know that not everyone has stupid questions like me, and I have been known to order on line from time to time, so I don't fault anybody for doing it.
Last time I ordered on line, I went to supergo.com.

Yes, I totally agree with those of you sugesting buying from the local bike shop. But in my case I´m forced to look elswere becaus LBS does not store what I´m looking for, for example: rear-view mirror and In-line cable adjustor. They never heard of INCA, so my salvation is to find a online store to buy these parts from. I´m not, as some seems to think, looking for a complete bicycle, just parts.
