The reviews here are mainly for products and not retailers. Since retailer advertising keeps this board alive, I would guess having a review section for retailers is probably not going to happen here at RBR.

So does anybody know of an outside site that reviews and rates mail order & online bicycle retailers?

I thought Epinions might, but, no.

The business risk for this might be great. I would bet that most websites depend upon retailer advertising dollars to survive.

I did this about 1 year ago when considering a frame purchase from an on line source that i'd found from a frame search on google; came up with the frame i wanted at racycle a new york company; several hits came up on my search of this site about them and so i ordered fairly comfortably; by the way, i wouldn't hesitate to order from ra cycles again--big selection, some attitude, there was a small problem with my order and they made good, no problem.

...there's a dropdown menu at the top of the home page that'll let you select regions/states other than SoCal, and you can click on "Bike Shops" to search for reviews of the shops listed. Caveat emptor!
