    Favorite online SS/fixed vendors?

    What vendors do you guys use online? The following are ones I have experience with, but nash and performance aren't ss/fixed specific and their selection bites.

    Harris Cyclery
    bicyclewheels.com
    nashbar
    performance bike
    ... I'm the center of attention in the walls inside my head ...

    2006 Specialized Langster SS, 197x Motobecane Mirage: crummy SS
    2005 Trek 2100, 1953 Raleigh Sports: Restoration on hold

    Glorycycles has really good customer service. Like, really really good. They just started stocking more SS/FG stuff, but their prices are a little high.

    Another nod to Ben's Cycle. Two orders were spot on and the wheelset I got has been great so far.

    I also use Nashbar & Performance but only for hella cheap stuff like $6 Michelin Speediums or my fantabulous $74 CF Forte fork.

    +1 to that. Good for some hard-ish to find stuff.

    Harris, too. http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/ Excellent service, willing to order anything. Lots & lots of info on their site.
