Road bike repair starter kit? (nipples, crimp ends, etc.)
As I'm learning to work on my bike, I find myself in need of some items like: spoke nipples, cable crimp ends, new cables and the like. (I have tools, I just need supplies.)
Is there an on-line source to buy some sort of starter kit for a road bike? Or, if not, where is the best place to buy some of those supplies?
I'd love to buy them as needed from my LBS, but it's almost an hour drive each way and I'd like to have some of those things on hand.
Thanks in advance!
