Any Good Canadian On-line Stores?

Does anyone know of any good Canadian On-line stores that I can order parts and accessories from? I am always ordering from the U.S. because there are lots of places to comparison shop but I have yet to find anything like this in Canada.

On the same topic why are parts sooooo much cheaper in the U.S. than in Canada? Even with the exchange rate I am getting parts for 50% less in the U.S. so will likely continue to order from there in the future. I like to order Canadian if the prices are close but when you are saving 50% on items my loyalty disappears. I was looking for a 12-27 DA chain ring and the price in the U.S. was $59.00 (approx $90.00 Canadian) the best price I found in Canada was $189.99. Wow, there was a tough choice to make!



Thanks

Mike

For the online Canadian bike stores, check these old threads:

GOOD online CANADIAN bike stores

canadian online bike stores?

As far as why things cost less in the USA? I speculate maybe the tax on importing may have something to do with it. Also, there are some countries that place a tax on goods to pay for their needs, and the taxes vary from country to country. I guess the taxes are just spread out on all kinds of stuff in the USA.

www.bikeroom.com is awesome. There prices are very competitive with the states when you take into account exchange rates. www.bikecanada.com is overpriced on almost everything. There is also www.johnhenrybikes.com, www.mec.ca (for parts and misc) and www.unbeatablebikes.com .
