Best Online Stores for Parts?

Aside from Amazon, can you folks recommend some good online stores for parts? I'm just getting back into biking after 25+ years away and just need some resources for bike parts. Thanks.

In no particular order, some I’ve used are: Jenson, Chain Reaction, Velo Orange, Pro Bike Kit, Competitive Cyclist. Some of the more general outdoor stores like Backcountry, REI, MEC can also be good resources.

I prefer to go to my local shop. Rather shop local as Jeff Bezos is already a multi billionaire who is the richest man in the world and doesn't need our help anymore.

That's what I did, actually, when I recently needed two racks and some other stuff - called the LBS on the phone and had them put in the order. Didn't take the LBS any longer to receive it, and I enjoyed having an excuse to ride my bicycle there to pick it up.

I agree w/you about Bezos. Amazon is an aspiring monopoly. I have boycotted them for at least the past five years.

Lots of good on line retailers the trick is finding the one closest to you to minimize shipping time.

Universal Cycle is one state over from me. UPS ground shipping is never more than 2 days.

If you have a good LBS they are an on line retailer. Ben's mentioned earlier is local to myself.

I like the German sites Bike-Discount, Bike-Components, Bike24 etc, not so handy since Shimano put the kybosh on international shipping. But still cheap for everything else.
