Good Mail-Order Catalog(s)?

Not that I don't want to support my LBS, but are there good catalogs out there just to see all the products stacked up next to each other?

Thanks,
Adam

Catalogs??? Oh yeah. Those things made from trees.
When I don't hit the bike shop I shop online. Saves trees -- I hope.

Most of the current catalogs are just teasers for online content......thinking of Nashbar, Performance, etc. Not like the Good Old Days when retailers put out catalogs jammed full of everything they carried.
How about the Bikecology (??) catalog of the late '70's (??) with a photo of a scantily clad young lady holding a seatpost with the caption "Grease well before inserting"?

I remember THOSE!

I don't bother with paper catalogs much anymore, they are little more than a sales flyer and seldom have the parts I am looking for anyway.

Me, too. I bought an early King headset from Bikeology (before they became Supergo and then got sucked into the Performance/Nashbar black hole). I rode to their store on Santa Monica Blvd. a couple times when I lived in So. Cal.

The Performance catalog is darn near content-less. Acres of brochure-speak in 6-point type. Bleahh...
