Nashbar or Team Estrogen?

I am needing to order a new bike seat and just wondered which company I should order from....Nashbar or Team Estrogen? What are your experiences with these 2 companies? Thanks for your replies.

I've always had good luck with Nashbar. Just got a package from them yesterday in fact. I can't speak to Team Estrogen however...

I got a package from Nashbar 3 days ago. I have ordered from them several times with no complaints.

Similarly, I have no experience with Team Estrogen, which is probably because it sounds like women specific products.

I have only ordered once from Nashbar, it went well, I got my order in about a week.

I have ordered things for my wife twice from Team Estrogen. Both times we received the order the next day. We live in WA, and the order was shipped from Oregon, so it didn't have to go too far. But it does appear that get right on shipping the items.

Maybe you should post this in the women's forum? As most dudes don't order from Team Estrogen.

I LOVE Team Estrogen. A small company, owned and run by a woman cyclist. They have clothing choices that you don't see at the big companies, and customer service is superb. I've returned items with no questions asked, and they ship very quickly. I try to order from them whenever possible. They have a discussion forum (under 'community') with a great bunch of ladies. That being said, I've also ordered a bunch of gear from Nashbar, with no complaints either...

Nashbar is cheaper. I order from them, and I haven't had problems.

Team Estrogen is an incredible company to work with. Their staff is great and willing to spend as much time as you need to find the right item. I had them send 3 different saddles to me, to try, and their recommendations were right on. Their return policy is terrific and credits to my accounts are posted quickly and correctly! Love the company.
