Where to purchase equipment....

I've been biking casually for many years and have usually gone to Performance or Nashbar for equipment. Are there any other merchants out there that are reputable? I'm in the market for a new trainer and found really good prices at two places that I've never purchased from. Has anyone dealt with either Agee's or Sunrise Cyclery? Their prices are really good however I know nothing about them.

I recall getting something from Sunrise once. Both look like fairly safe bets - at least they actually have storefronts and publish their contact/phyiscal location information.

I live where Agee's is located (Richmond VA.) Most all of the dedicated cyclists stay far far away from Agee's. It's kinda taboo to talk about around here, but Agee's has some morally wrong business practices. They've also bullied other local shops out of business while not doing anything for the local cycling scene.

Although I wouldn't worry about having a web order go wrong with them, I certainly wouldn't choose to patronize them.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll stay away from Agee's; no point in supporting someone like that.
