    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 ...

    1984 Fuji Berkeley: Fixed conversion build thread
    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.
