Who's cool and not, of Colorado Cyclist, Excel, Perform...Alpine
May 9, 2001 5:53 PM
I'm throwing a bike together with Campy Chorus 10 and still need wheels, tires, seat, seatpost, bar and tape.
I plan to get this stuff mail order and want to know what the best sources are. Who do I stay away? I'd like to order it all from one place and the Campy Nucleons or Electrons are propbably going to be the deal maker. I don't even know if Performance and Nashbar carry them.
Anyway I'm looking for a source that does the job right. I don't want my time wasted by an inaccurately filled order or something like that.
Who's cool and who's not?

www.totalcycling.com should be able to fill your needs. Great prices on the 10-speed and the wheels. Don't worry about the fact that they are from Ireland. Have gotten stuff from them faster than ordering items from US.

I have done a lot of mail order. All the sources you have mentioned (Colorado Cyclist, Excel, Performance, Nashbar) have always been fine. I have placed many orders with them all without problem. I have never ordered Campy before, but Excel has great prices on Shimano. See if any of them price match (I know Performance used to). I built up a mountain bike last year and ended up going with Performance because they matched lowest prices from other sources. Then I could just get it all from one place and still get the best prices. Good luck!!

I really like Texas Cycle Sports. Pretty much the best prices around (quite comparable to Total Cycling), very responsive, easy to talk to or communicate with via e-mail. See www.txcyclesport.com

Check out Branford -www.branfordbike.com - for the most comprehensive Campy catalog - bar none. They sponsor the 'Campy Only' site. Great service, too.

The cheapest and best website for Campy is sdeals.com.
Nucleons are currently priced at under 450.00.
