looking for beach cruiser/lowrider parts

Can you point me to any canadian online retailers for parts for these bikes???
I have only found chain gang lowrider located in calgary.
Thank you for any info you can provide.
Im currently in the market for complete wheel sets possibly with internal geared hub. All the sites I have been to seem to be based in the USA. I am located in the GTA in case there are any store fronts that may be able to order parts. THANKS

here is a google pic of the bike I got:

Your LBS can order parts from a variety of wholesalers so you should go to them

Local bike shop was unable to find me a complete bike. They couldn't order a springer for a bike they had in stock that I liked. The only offer I got was if I wanted "norco" parts they can be ordered. I dont think that was much help. They sent me to walmart to buy a new tube for goodness sakes.

Any wholesalers you recommend??? Maybe I can see if the bike shop deals with them or has a catalog before going in and wasting my time again???

The only help I got from them was telling me to check norco's website and they can order from there. As you can see from the pic of my bike (which was shown to the shops). There is no norco like my bike! I told them when I went in the store, "I like this bike in my picture with the springer but I need ape hangers too". Can you order me a bike like this?? They told me I have to go to CALI to buy a bike like that. They were no help at all...

I am just looking for Canadian suppliers for parts. If you can provide any info for me, I thank you! Are there any other Canadian retailers for lowrider/ stretch cruiser parts and accessories? If there is none then I can order my parts from cali if needed. I do appreciate the fact you were just trying to help, but my local bike stores suck badly.

I assume LBS means "local bike shop"....Not worth moving to buy $20 worth of gears. Thanks for the help but I will just order from the USA then. Word to your mom.

I didn't realize you lived in one of those areas with only one LBS. You deserve a real LBS. Good luck with your purchase!

A lot of shops will let you order over the phone if you can pick it up from the shop in person. I wish I could give you the name of a good wholesaler in canada, but I know of none.
