Canadian Online Source

Hi guys, looking for a Canadian online source for parts. Something like Jensonusa without having to deal with cross-border nonsense.

Thanks in advance,
Commodus.

There is not an equivalent since bicycle parts in Canada are expensive. There are online stores, but they're not like jenson or pricepoint.

Niagara Cycle is the best I've found. They can be slow to ship, though. MEC has also started carrying more bike parts, so they're worth checking out.

no store like that in canada.

closest you can get is probikekit.com , chainreactioncycles.com and wiggle.co.uk which offer free shipping.

Second vote for MEC. I've ordered a number of things from them. Another site worth checking out is BikePartsCAN.com. They don't have a huge selection (in fact it's kinda lame) but they are Canadian. Many US distributors are willing to ship to Canada, but you pay large for the shipping.
