There a Nashbar/Performance equivalent in Canada

Or any good stores to order online from with decent prices? Seems like there's about zero of them in canada. That's sad.

None of those have as complete a selection as nashbar/perfromance though... component wise, wheels, brakes, shifters, cranksets, derailleurs.

I hate getting shafted with customs when ordering from the u.s. Unless I ride my bike down there install the components and ride back up...

For decent pricing (none of the ones listed offer competetive to us online pricing) there really is only one. www.bikeroom.com

Prices are on par or cheaper than most american online shops and David is a good guy too Unfortunately its almost exclusively mtb stuff.

I used to use www.bikecanada.com but they never update their site, pricing is outrageous (imo) and they didn't have enough mtb stuff

Thanks for the bikeroom link. I surfed over to bikecanada yesterday, and I was a little surprised by their prices, most of the time I was like .

No prob. I do 99% of my buying online and always pay cheap prices. I wouldn't be able to afford to ride if it wasn't for bikeroom.

If you have anything special you need sometimes david can order it too...although the are tough to get a hold of on the phone.
