Thumbs-up to "Loose Screws" Bicycle Small PartsDigital Dave

I've had an excellent experience fitting a Dura-Ace freewheel with new cogs. Although they bill themselves as a "net-only" e-commerce site (and it is a nice site), after I ordered a complete freewheel they promptly called apologizing that they in fact did not have that piece in stock. I called back (thank caller id) and after a few different conversations had just what I needed to lower my gearing to a better hill-climbing setup. I recommend them. Their site is "Loose Screws/The Third Hand" at http://www.thethirdhand.com/index.cgi
The site isn't the fastest (they're working on it) but they have a well organized database of available parts.

p.s. (They will be shut down until Sept.)

These nice folks really go overboard on the service side of the bus. They even left me a voice mail regarding an order I had. You won't get type of service from 99% of the other vendors in this business.

I heard a nasty rumor that they were going out of business. Thankfully that appears to be untrue.
