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)

Where do you sell/buy parts?

What are some of your favorite websites for selling and/or buying parts?

I've got a friend with a bike shop, so I get most of my stuff at or near cost. If he doesn't carry it, then I'll just order off the web. There are so many sites I've used, it would take forever to list them. I'm also big on local classifieds, as there's always good stuff cheap. Today there was a complete fixed gear for $100, and another for $200.

Sell either on CL or to local shop that buys used parts.
Buy from LBS, CL, ebay, jensonusa, airbomb, universal cycles, etc...

don't feel like starting a new thread so i'll just ask here

anyone know where i can get specialized deflect gloves (not 2010s) for a decent price? i've looked on 30+ sites and called up some LBSs and they're all pretty much $36-40 even if they're old 07 or 08 models. i've even seen sites that have them above msrp at about $80 which is ridiculous.

i've tried qbike, only found some women's 2010 gloves on ebay. not really a fan of the 2010 model, nor am i a woman (i'd probably need an XL to fit in em).
