Cheapest website for parts ?
looking for the cheapest website that will ship to australia for parts like cranks, bars, chains and sprockets. im going to build a track bike and need everything besides a frame and wheels.
Depends on what you want. Euro, Japanese or a bit of both. For cheap Campagnolo track parts try http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/ . Prices are great because of the massive devalue of the Pound. Even with the shipping and credit card fees they are cheaper than anybody else. Also wait a bit because every month or so they have 15% off. If you want Japanese parts, Shimano, Sugino, Nitto etal, try eBay.
www.tracksupermarket.com has decent prices on japanese parts. Most cheaper than ebay.
Wiggle has good prices on the Miche group too.
These people have good prices on tires, maybe other stuff too. http://www.worldclasscycles.com/mm5/...Store_Code=WCC
nashbar.com has really good deals on soma cogs, also ive been buying from benscycle.net a whole lot and they have a big enough selection of decently priced parts as well as pricey quality parts.
tracksupermarket is ridiculously overpriced, probably because of the explosion of keirin popularity/every color anodized you can think of.
Why don't you try asking your local trackies to see if they will sell you parts since you obviously don't care what you get when you ask for "cheapest". Used is almost always a better value.
Their fancy crap is overpriced, considering you are interested in racing and not flashing up your bike but their standard stuff is cheaper than ebay. stems/bars/hs's etc.. or at least it was the last time I checked.
