    New Parts Supplier, good deal

    OK, so I needed some replacement freewheels, nothing fancy, but decent. So I did a quick Google search: 6 speed Shimanos for $9, 7 speed Shimanos for $10.

    The source? That evil place, Walmart.com. Got them in two days, they did not come from Walmart, I'll have to check the box. Appears they are trying to compete with Amazon, hosting stuff for other sellers.

    Price was significantly less than Niagara, and the service speaks for itself.

    Also bought an 8 speed cassette, with in store pickup, no shipping.

    Alright - I have always been surprised by some of the good things I have gotten at Walmart and Sam's - Niagara has good prices but shipping and that extra 5-6 days they sit on my orders has been tedious - I have tuned up some of the bikes local kids have gotten from Walmart and considering the cost they to are not so bad... After a tune that is...
