    acquiring parts online?

    i'm building up a fixie, and was wondering what some of the better online sites were for acquiring various parts. i've got the meat of the bike, the frame, wheels and crankset, but what are some good places for pedals, bars, chains, saddles etc?

    Also, the build-up kits from IRO Cycle aren't bad.

    I'm assuming you're looking for inexpensive parts.
