Nashbar.com - is it a good seller?

Nashbar has been around for ages (also associated / owned by the same company that operates Performance and Supergo). I've spent more then I should have with them over the past couple years and I've yet to get a bum deal.

A lot of thier house-brand components are actually retagged name brand. I've used a bunch of em and have been happy with the price/performance.

Shipping is dependent upon distance. I usually get my stuff with 3-5 days.

No worries. They get $500 - $1000 a year from me.

Nashbar is a reputable vendor and usually ship within 24 hours. Check the Hot Deals forum and you will probably find a coupon code for 10% off. Nashbar almost always has a valid code out there.

Note that in my experience, the 'standard' shipping option usually goes by US Postal Service. This is usually a day or two slower than UPS (shipping to Texas) and you do not get a tracking number.

I have bought from Nashbar for years. They are reliable and reasonably priced, and their store-labeled items are of good quality. I recall typical delivery time being about 3 or 4 days.

Just ordered a Nite Rider Raptor, Rack, and trunk bag last week (tuesday) and had it on Friday. Would have had it Thursday but I missed the Fed Ex guy. I usually pay the extra for 2nd day because, well, I'm impatient. I've used them (and some of their rebranded parts) for quite a while, and have yet to have an issue with them...

Yes, I've bought stuff from them. They ship USPS. Never had a problem with anything.

i concur with the others. Been ordering from them for years. Actually, I live very close to one of their warehouses and you used to be able to go pick up the stuff. they even had a regular store there where you could shop. its closed now but it was great. it was in youngstown, oh.
