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)

you really need to shop around as no single site has the best prices or selection on everything. I buy tires from PBK, misc parts from speedgoat, random stuff from bonktown. It all depends.

+1 w/ filtersweep, one site might have one thing in stock but another might not. ive had great experiences with jenson usa and bikeisland. bought stuff from both sites multiple times, they have fast shipping and hassle free return policies.

best prices for tires I have seen. especially is you are willing to buy 3 for the 5% discount or even 6 for a 9% discount. I went in on 3 tires with 2 other friends. we all got one but payed less

I bought a pair of cxp-33s track and got a great price from Bicycle Wheel Warehouse. The wheels were well packed and came perfectly true. Ask for Pat. And I second universal cycles.

Most of the stores mentioned so far have stores on ebay also, which is where I go instead for the feedback and pretty much guaranteed to ship next day. My favorite is Cyclingcloseout's ebay store, which is Wheelandsprocket.

Lemme add http://www.treefortbikes.com and Harborcountrybike.com. They treated me right on a few orders recently, namely with ace prices and free shipping.

+1 on shopping around though. Another trick I do is to use shopping.google.com then sort by lowest price first. (or just google something then click Shopping at the top)

totalcycling was a great place before all those cases of overseas fraudulent charges. don't know if that stuff ever got cleaned up, but I made out like a bandit from there when the GBP bottomed out. They've still got pretty good prices on their site.

I've had nothing but great experiences from webcyclery.com - not the biggest selection of SS/FG parts, but it's always my first choice. They are relatively local (Oregon, I'm in Seattle), honest, fast shipping, and have an awesome staff. On my last order they sent me $7.00 through paypal because the actual shipping cost turned out to be less than what the website calculated.
