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)

good online dealer?

I was just wondering if anyone knows of a good online dealer. I'm lookong specifically for some Surly track hubs. I found a website called Alfred E. Bike that seemed to have the best deal, but I'm a little hesitant to order from a sight that I have not heard of. I'm just afraid of things being eternally back ordered, or the order getting fowled up (especially when they charge a 15% restoking fee on returns).

When I had to order track hubs, I went to www.businesscycles.com. They had good prices and fast shipping.

i got my sugino 75 cranks from alfredEbike. they were very helpful. the only issue i had was that i had to call them to place the order. but that wasn't a huge problem.

they have some good deals, and their service is pretty excellent.

A++++++++ WOULD BUY FROM AGAIN!!!!

Have had good experiences with Chuck's Bikes, Harris and Van Dessel. Only Harris carries Surly hubs, but I thought I would throw the props out there anyway. I had some apprehension about Chuck's but everything went well.

A.E.Bike

Bought 3-4 times from them and very happy with their service. Good prices and seem to ship fairly quickly unless they have to order it in. Then they are at the mercy of their distributor like every body else.
