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.

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.

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?
