You can also try www.strikeitfit.com some good prices here too.
Purchased some wheels and had a good experience.

The prices on those sites are great! But they're international. Are there any complications dealing with them? I.E. Customs/Duty tax, extra shipping costs?? Have any of you ever had to return things to them? Was it a hassle? Answer are much appreciated.

Anything under $200 will not be charged duty or taxes by US Customs.
However most stuff seems to get through with no charges, I got $550 Ksyriums and got no extra charges, great! Haven't had to return anything but the guys seem OK, they answer all mails etc. By the way I'm talking of www.strikeitfit.com

I purchased the 296's from www.probikekit.com. I received them fast via USPS and the shipping costs weren't too bad.

I've purchased 2 wheelsets, a trainer, lots of tires, cyclocomputers, shoes, bars, stems, etc. from online retailers in the UK, mostly from Parker International (www.parker-international.co.uk) and a few things from www.sdeals.com.

I've never paid any custom charges (and am still keeping my fingers crossed).

Parker is probably my favorite. Just set up an account (by phone or fax) and they have you on file.

I did get nailed with a huge shipping fee for the trainer (because of weight) but even with the added cost of overseas shipping the total costs of all the items I bought was still $120 less than if I'd bought them mail order in the U.S.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. Who knew that you could save so much by purchasing overseas!?!? Very very kick ass!
Sierra Trading Post has Looks for $40 . . .DCW

They are 206's (in red, yellow and white) that Doug Sloan on the main board has used for years and highly recommends. They are tension adjustable. I have used 356's for years, but I just ordered a pair of these for another bike.

Actually the 206 does not have adjustable tension...but the 247s do and Sierra has them for $70.

all Look pedals have adjustable release tension... even the Fisher-Price "My very first pair of clipless pedals" Look PP206. They have only been out a year or two and are on sale because the new models are all black and black/grey
