Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Best place to buy online?

I'm looking to buy Miche hubs w/ lockring and carrier and I was just wondering if any of you has had experiences with these two online stores:

World class cycles
- Miche high flange 36h pista hubset - 130$
- Miche Cog - 18,50$
- Miche Carrier - 9,90$
shipping to Quebec from New York - ?

158,40$

Business Cycles
- Miche high flange 36h pista hubset - 115$
- Miche Cog - 17,50$
- Miche Carrier - 5,50$
shipping to Quebec from florida - ?

138$

thanks

maybe give campione in vancouver a call. They usually had good prices on Miche stuff.
Shipping would be a bit simpler.
(if you decide on buying from the states, ask for USPS shipping otherwise don't be suprised when you get hit with UPS/FedEx brokerage fees)

Both are reputable, but businesscycles is probably more popular.

yeaaa, john is friendly ...that is until you ask him to write a lower
price on the customs form when he ships to you internationally.
"...oh, that's illegal."

...but trackstar will do it! thank you trackstar.
