Nashbar
Jenson USA
ebay
Performance bike
Amazon
Niagara Cycle Works

These are in no particular order. I've bought bike parts from all of these except Nashbar. No particular reason against Nashbar, I've just always found cheaper prices elsewhere on the items I wanted.

I've had good luck with pro bike kit. They are a UK dealer, but usually offer free shipping to North America.

I like universalcycles.com, especially when they have what I want at their Minnesota warehouse.

I have also gotten good deals from Amazon.

My LBS while I really want to like them, are just too expensive.
I can order something faster from Jenson than I can ordering through him, since they never have what you want in stock (aside from the basics)

agreed, BUT only if you know exactly what you need. I worked in shops for 15 years, and was always having someone come in with something they mail-ordered, only to find they got the wrong one, or it wouldn't fit, etc.
I spent a lot of time fixing mail-ordered bikes as well, so many times people lose any cost savings they thought they made.

With eBay, lots of times it's some LBS that's selling stuff on there.

If you do research and know what you want and what will work....I like Nashbar and Performance. Great prices comparatively. Fast delivery.

Ribble cycles: Cheapest one, no international tracking number but it's free and fast delivery, but some items are not available internationally (liquids, lubes, bike trainers, big items etc.), they are really good overall. This is my favorite place so far, they usually give the best price.

Chain reaction cycles: Not the cheapest, but they provide tracking number. They sell big items internationally with free shipping. Their customer service is good as well.

Jenson usa: Expensive, but they pay duties on behalf of you, so you don't have to deal with customs (important fact if you live in Canada).

US stores are usually expensive, I don't know why. GB sellers convert GBP to CAD (or any other currencies), so it is easier for international buyers to see what they are going to pay.
