    The same GT Outpost Mountain bike I've been riding since 1996. I also have a collection of cruisers, folders, and some antiques.

    Ben's Cycle?

    The ad is always to the right of this forum window and proudly boasts "1000's of Bike Commuting Accessories." I finally took the bait and clicked on it today. Can someone tell me exactly WHERE the commuting accessories are listed?

    Look under the accessories and apparel tabs.

    Ben's is great to deal with.

    I've bought a bunch of components and parts from them. Great prices and service. Don't know about the commuting accessories

    'Guess I was just being lazy. The way they promoted "commuting accessories," I assumed there would be a "commuting" tab!

    +1. They also manage to have some unusual, but neat components.

    It's weird: As a paid member of bikeforums, I don't see the ads. I like this, because the layout of the ads on this site is annoying, not because I don't like related ads.

    Consider $12/year. You get your money's worth. But I'm grateful for the reference.
    Please email me rather than sending me a private message. My address is noglider@pobox.com

    Ben's is great. They carry a lot of items that are heard to find at other on-line merchants, such as threaded stems, 26.0 handlebars and stems, etc. I heartily recommend them. If you find a product on their site through a search, they give you an automatic 10-20% discount.
