Ordering online?..

maybe this could be a good sticky as well in the future...

anyways, for those who have ordered online, whether it be a bike or in my case riding gear, can anyone suggest a few websites?

starting out in MTB riding and wanted to get some riding equipment.. basically, find out who has the best prices or who offers good service etc...

right now, i'm looking to buy a helmet, some gloves & camelpack... may look into some shoes & glasses (figured i could probably use my shooting glasses for now).. not sure what else i may need though...

I have had excellent results from Jenson. Good prices and they will do a price match. I'm sure many others here have had the same experience IIRC.
