If you look at turnover, wigglecrc should be the top.

I think the title should mention "US" as more than half of the users on this forum are from EU & other Countries.

Nashbar. Expensive unless on special.

Probikekit. Great prices. Good for tires , tubes and clothing specially their brand.

Chain reaction. Good for mountain bike deals.

Jenson USA. Special items and on sale stuff.

Competitive cyclist. Expensive for most things except when on special.

Worldwidecyclery. Good place for Mnt bike stuff.

My next two bikes I bought from a LBS, though neither was in the city where I live. I bought my last bike as a closeout from Competitive Cyclist. Agree the latter lost a certain cachet after being bought up by Backcountry.

Before gravitating to the European online retailers (CRC, Wiggle, Ribble, Sigma Sport, Starbike, Bike24, etc.), I used to shop Excel Sports, Colorado Cyclist, Cambria Bike Outfitter… Here in Canada, I'll usually check La Bicicletta and Canada Bicycle Parts or stop by the local MEC.

As God is my witness, I'd never heard of Bikesdirect before today. That is one fugly website :shock: I'm guessing none of their overhead goes to cultivating their web presence.
Bikes direct is solid. They are in FL. I HAVE BOUGHT 2 bikes from them.

What bikes did you buy and what sites / stores did you cross shop before buying?

This poll is missing all of the retailers I typically look at.

When I'm looking for the best price on a part I look on

ebay
google
probikekit
ribble
wiggle
merlin
excel sports

Sorry was not more clear - this was about sites for bicycles, not just parts :)
