Internet source for Bebop Pedals?

Decided to throw down for the Bebops to replace my Eggbeaters (The 'beaters are causing some knee pain).

I've checked all my usual internet mail order places, but no one carries Bebops. Any suggestions?

Also bebop.com does have a list on their website of US distributors.

Thanks for the reply;

I did find Cambriabike.com in my search as the only online dealer, however, they only list one model, and it appears to be the cheaper CroMo pedal - I was interested in the Bebop SL stainless steel model which is the next model up.

I also looked at the Bebop website, but their list of distributors seems to focus only on brick and mortar retailers.

There's gotta be more than just Cambriabike.com as an online dealer in Bebop pedals . . . ?

To answer my own question . . .

First, the Bebops are really hard to find (not sure if this is always true). Of the approximately 150 odd brick and mortar suppliers listed on the Bebop page, about 6 had an internet links shown. I called all the internet suppliers listed on the Bebop web page (didn't bother with the non-linked suppliers).

Of all those linked distributors, most were out of stock and waiting on Bebop to ship more pedals. FWIW, some of these suppliers predicted some sort of design change in the new pedals and some predicted no change at all.

Angle Tech in Woodland Park, CO - (800-793-3038) did have a few in stock and were very knowledgable about the Bebop pedals. Seems the Bebop pedal is Angle Tech's preferred pedal, and thus what they sell the most of and have the most experience with. Angle Tech was happy to spend a few minutes talking with me about pedals in general, and why they prefer the Bebops, especially for road riding. Angle Tech emphasized that they would offer plenty of customer support for the Bebop pedals, and customer support is something that Bebop gets dinged on so having a shop back me up is great.

Hopefully, the pedals and cleats will install easily and I'll be back on the road this weekend without a second thought.
