when buying parts for my bike online, i usually check ebay, bikeroom.com and jensonusa.com and compare all the prices and the shipping costs, buying from whereverís cheaper. if the difference between the prices isnít too big, iíll go with bikeroom over jenson or ebay just to avoid any extra duty/customs costs.
my experience with jenson has been excellent. my packages always arrive in a short amount of time and they're always packaged well. canít say the same about bikeroom though. my experience with them has been so-so. when i ordered my xt front derrailluer from them, they called me to find out if i wanted a newer model than the one i ordered, which i thought was cool. but when i ordered my 661 full bravo 2 from them i wasnít too pleased with the packaging it came in Ė they sent it in the retail box without any padding or cusioning and the helmet could have been easily damaged en route. luckily, the helmet wasnít damaged (as far as i could tell), so iím happy about that.
