    Hello and welcome to the forums. I sugest that you buy a bike from you lbs. The 50 -70 that you save is not worth it, because unless you really know how to put together a bike you will just spend that much at you lbs to have them put it all together.

    Most of the time you will find that a bike shipped from a onlin store will have problems that the product gets damaged when shipped (bad fedex driver lol

    I say just get it from a lbs, there you will get much better help and most of the time they will give you free tune-up for some thing like 90 days (that in its self will be worth the extra money if you ride a lot)

    Hope this helps some and feel free to post a lot here!

    Jared

    This is part of my webpage. At the bottom are some links to some UK parts suppliers.

    I generally try to buy from the LBS even if the prices are higher, just because I like knowing that if I support them now, then they'll be around to answer stupid questions I may have later. But I know that not everyone has stupid questions like me, and I have been known to order on line from time to time, so I don't fault anybody for doing it.

    Last time I ordered on line, I went to supergo.com.

    Yes, I totally agree with those of you sugesting buying from the local bike shop. But in my case Im forced to look elswere becaus LBS does not store what Im looking for, for example: rear-view mirror and In-line cable adjustor. They never heard of INCA, so my salvation is to find a online store to buy these parts from. Im not, as some seems to think, looking for a complete bicycle, just parts.
