    What is your favorite online MTB gear shop?

    Hi everyone! I have decided to transition from my bmx gear and just got my first "big boy bike". Got a new '07 Trek 4300 this last weekend. Took in on some short trails near my house Saturday around sun up and we'll just say, I have the mtb bug.

    Anyway, I'm on a pretty tight budget and going to have to add things here and there for the first year or so. My LBS runs fairly high on most items. So I've been looking online for a good place to buy accessories and apparel. I've run across a few, but didn't know if any of you guys had any suggestions. I've been rooting around ebay, jensonusa and pricepoint. Anyone have any suggestions.

    Pricepoint in my mind is the Danscomp (to put it in BMX terms) of mountain bike onlines.
    For me the next are (in order):
    Universal Cycles
    JensonUSA
    Then all the others: Nashbar, Performance, Cambria, Wheel World, Frankford, etc.
    Hope this helps

    Jenson is good stuff. Reasonable pricing, quick delivery.

    By far the best prices and fastest shipping:

    Nashbar
    Pricepoint

    Thanks for the tips! Looks like these will really help me get started. This should help with my G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome).

    And now, I must figure out a way to convince my wife that I NEED those new shoes and pedals.
