|Internet source for Dura Ace hub cones and bearings?||PT|

|I haven't had luck finding replacement cones and bearings for my Dura Ace hubs at the usual web sites (CC, Performance, Excel). My small town shop doesn't stock 'em or have a competent wrench so I have to/want to do it myself. If there's a source on the internet, I might as well use them. Any ideas?

|You can always try Harris Cyclery. Google that to get the web address. It's Sheldon Brown's shop. Your local shop may not stock them, but they can order them from Shimano of America. Just tell them what you need. You can look up the part numbers yourself on Shimano's webpage. All your shop needs is to be able to prove they are a brick and mortar shop. Meaning a legit bike shop, and not just a web or e-tailer shop. If they have an actual street address, Shimano will sell them small parts even if they don't otherwise have an account with Shimano.
If neither of those work out for you, you can post a message here for me telling me exactly what you need (cones for which hubs, front, rear, both, and bearings for front and/or rear) and I can order them for you. It would be faster to have your shop do it, but if they won't, I can help you. Just let me know exactly what you need and how big of a hurry you are in to get this stuff. If you don't mind waiting a couple weeks, I can help you, but I have to order from Shimano in Cali, have them ship to me in Florida, then me ship to you wherever you are... takes some time, but can be done if you can't find them anywhere else.

Probably has what you are looking for. This is just the on line QBP catalog, which AEbike also accesses. I think bicycleblowout has a lower markup, plus they're my LBS.
