Cycling supply catalogs
 
What's your favorite cycling supply catalog? I'm not finding many online that have a paper catalog.

Depends what you're looking for.
For normal everyday type stuff, Performancebike.com
For more boutiquey stuff, Rivendell has a great catalog and magazine. www.rivbike.com

I just buy online and don't bother with the paper catalogs. Performance and Nashbar still send out catalogs...and send out catalogs and send out...keeps my paper recycler in business.:rolleyes:

Most of the stuff I buy is pretty off the wall so paper catalogs likely don't exist. Save a tree use electrons. LOL

I get Perf and Colorado Cyclist, used to get a Nashbar now and again, and I do see Jenson every couple months; good bathroom reading.

Coupla years ago, catalogs were all over -- now it's just about all online. My latest Price Point is over 2 years old, and CBO? Forget it.

Why kill a tree? Don't everybody have a laptop these days? or iPhone :)

Thankfully, fewer and fewer places are using paper catalogues. Why send out a catalogue when a person can look up the shop online?

Velotique used to send out 2 catalogues a year ... but now have gone to a completely online setup.

MEC still sends 2 catalogues a year, but they're a bit smaller and the online info is much more up-to-date.

Nashbar sends a catalogue with the orders I get from them, but that's it, they don't send a regular monthly catalogue to me anymore which works for me because again the online info is more up-to-date.

Checking my mailbox every day for a long, long, long time waiting for the new Bike Pro buyer's guide. Hey, wait a minute! They have a website......I'll just go there and order what I need! Why not?

How did you get Nashbar to not send you stuff?
