Search function isn't disabled, it's just funky. Go to page two of your results page to find the Forum threads. Lots of Google-related stuff on page one now.

Check ridemonkey in the Bad Sellers forum, there's some interesting stuff.

Heh, not exactly full of praise for them. Sometimes, that $5 just isn't worth it.

Thanks for the good word guys.

I'd just like to reiterate that BeyondBikes is not worth the hassle. Same with Airbomb. Neither actually stocks much of what's listed on their site. They just order it like your LBS would and ship it out to you, based on my experiences.

True, their prices are usually the lowest, but most of the major online retailers offer Price Matching. So use bestwebbuys and qbike to find the lowest price, and then use your preferred retailer's Price Matching.

I personally do this all the time with Cambriabike.com. Their Price Matching can be done online and is instant, they have a great selection compared to most of the online stores, and their customer service has always been very good to me.
