    Mail order catalogs?

    Are there any good bike parts/accessories mail order catalogs available?

    I like Colorado Cyclist, Excel Sports, Performance Bike and Nashbar.

    You looking for a good paper catalog or a good website? (Either of which is no good without good service.)

    Look up ... to the top of this forum (General Cycling Forum) ... to the Positive Experiences thread:

    POSITIVE experiences with cycling-related businesses

    What kind of stuff are you really interested in?

    Colorado Cyclist looks good to me if your interest is in higher end, name brand components and clothing.

    Nashbar would be my choice for basic, functional stuff.

    Performance falls about halfway in between.

    I've had good luck the last year or two with Bikeman. They're in Maine, but stuff gets to Indiana fast and the selection (QBP) is huge.
    I've ordered from Nashbar for several decades and Performance a bit less and have never had trouble but they don't always have exactly what you need.
    Hostelshoppe is great for recumbent bike stuff.

    I've contacted a few for catalogs and checked the positive feedback forum, good information thanks for the replies.
