This is one of the best stores for having a great selection as well as fair prices. Performance Bikes has also created a new feature that lets you bargain for a merchandise if you think that it is too costly.

If you have an REI store nearby, you’re in luck. Their prices are typically the full retail price, but if you are an REI member, you get 10% back.
They also have an excellent return policy. If the product is defective or not what it was claimed to be, you can return it with no hassle.
The problem I’m currently having with these guys is that there return policy are exaggerated. I sometimes don’t get my money back.
What they will tell you is choose another product but find it very difficult to give you back your money.
If you’re going to use REI be sure you know what you are actually looking for before purchasing anything.

Pro Bike Kit is an online retailer with nearly everything you could ask for. Even if you just want to browse, it’s a lot of fun. Sometimes I spend hours on their website!
Pro Bike Kit has a lot of bike merchandise and outfit you can think of and at affordable rates. I sometimes find it a hobby of going to the site even when I am not prepared to buy anything.
I highly recommend you check out Pro Bike Kit. It is an amazingly built site.
You can’t always trust Amazon.com when it comes to bike parts because most of the stuff is sold by small, unheard of bike shops that might not be that honest.
Occasionally though, you can find hard-to-find parts from reputable sellers, so I wouldn’t rule it out completely.
Be that as it may, Amazon’s trust cannot be taken for granted. You get what you ordered for.
