|In the past year I have made purchases at:
Sierra Trading Post
Bike Tires Direct
As far as NYC shops go - Toga and Renaissance
|Agree with Uprwstsdr - at least for clothes||BrianNYC|

|Better selection (more options) and prices (e.g. private label clothes) once you realize that Performance (what I've tried, I am sure other private label stuff is good too) bibs are as if not more comfortable than Assos or Castelli or whatever other name brands NYC LBS's stock.
That being said, my experience is that name brand clothes and are priced similarly at NYC LBS's as on line, unless someone online is having a sale.
Other kinds of accessories (e.g., pump, trainer) online, more choices and pricing that is usually, but not always, better.
