I'd like to find an online bike shop where there's lots of people reviewing stuff! Any suggestions?

I don't know of any one site, but many have at least some reviews. I just go to google and enter "Shimano Widget Reviews". The first several hits will have reviews.

Amazon has a pretty wide customer base.

I usually turn to Nashbar or Amazon for customer reviews. Both seem to have an extensive customer base. However I've noticed much of the time, that some people tend to "review" products before using them though so beware.

The problems with site reviews are that the reviews are just puchased and happy reviews, or the item failed and it's crap reviews. There are typically very few long term use reviews that are what most people seem to want. Sites like these tend to be the best place for those more helpful sort of reviews. Add to that is the common practice of sites culling bad reviews to skew the review ratings. Google is your friend rather than particular sites.
