Nashbar has good pricing for bikes
I have been looking for a road bike with Ultegra components for awhile now and these are expensive, $2-3K. However if you don't mind the named brand, some assembling, and timing for additional coupons, you can find a good deal on Nashbar.
very nice store, and good service and lower price.
Will shop again.
Avoid this store at all cost
Nashbar is the worst online retailer on bike stuff. Their staff are ignorant and could careless about your order. Two issues:
1. I wanted to order a pair of 2013 Northwave Fighter SBS, the picture on the product page shows a non-SBS version. I opened a online chat to talk the sales, the sales decided that it is a technical issue so I have to talk to a Bike specialist. Then the specialist kept saying, yes, what your order will be exactly like the picture. Then I said no, the picture does not go with the product descprition. He then said, oh, I thought you were talking about the color and says that the product I order will be exactly same as the product description. Pretty sketchy. Dont you think?
2. I ended up ordering another pair of shoes, and have it send to a shipping company by the boarder. To do cross boarder shopping, I added the shipping address to my billing address so I can use it. However, nashbar decided that they do not ship to shipping companies. (Which is not stated anywhere on their website) And they charge your CC right away upon sumbit the order. So, yes, they will accept your money right away, but whether they want to do the business is another story.
Go back to online chat with their customer support, they could careless if you order from them. I guess US has a pretty big custmer base so they can still do business.
Anyway, worst expereience, just go order somewhere else and keep away from this retailer
cyclist's best friend for value on sundries and clothing
I have always used Bike Nashbar to fill in on all the little incidentals required for cycling season from chain lube to socks. I ususally shop clearance items for even better value. I have never had to return anything, not even the amazing clipless shoe system from TIME. Fit and feel perfect! Still have them, even after a couple of seasons.

Good inventory, lots on sale, sometimes sale prices are very cheap
Here is my recent experience with Bike Nashbar.
I am not sure when they were founded but I know I bought cycling stuff from Bike Nashbar and Performance Bike about 20 years ago without a single problem, that is until recently when I created a new account to buy some new cycling related items. The problems begin when I received a subscription to Outside Magazine. For the life of me I did not know who would have done this until I thought of recently signing up at BN.
So I call BN and talk to their customer service rep. and she said they did it. Well I went ballistic, what gives them the right to do these kinds of things without my authorization. So I kindly ask the CSR to cancel my account at BN and she says she will forward it to the right person. I then go to the Outside Magazine website to cancel my subscription and stop auto renewal.
A week goes past and Iím still able to log in to my account at BN, so this time I email them. And I get same script from BN, we will will pass it on to the right person. After waiting a few weeks I receive another copy of Outside Magazine in the mail. Here we go again. Back to Outside Magazineís website to cancel my subscription again and now I find even thou the magazine is in my name I am not authorized to change my auto renewal settings. I email a CSR from Outside Magazine, this time telling them that BN had no authorization from me to send me the magazine and I also ask to have my auto renewal changed. I also emailed BN again this time threatening to report them to the BBB and FTC.
I think that I would like to give a person or company a little leeway sometimes, but this time, three strikes and your out. If they canít figure it out the first time you ask then there is something very very wrong. They seem very incompetent to me.
Customer Service Dept. or Company???? In this case I donít know. It would be nice if there was a opt out when you sign up for an account , but there is none.
As far as Iím concerned Iím done with them. I just hope Outside Magazine isnít as hard to deal with.
If others have asked BN to delete their account. My advice make sure they have, chances are they havenít because they seem too inept.
The customer service at BN is very very bad so I sure hope others heed the warning here.
So as it stands now I have called my credit card company to report my card lost so BN canít charge me for a auto renewal to Outside Magazine (I get a new number that is not in the BN system), waiting on a CSR from Outside Magazine to contact me. And I have given BN till September 16 to delete my account or they get reported and this story goes viral.
So this morning I decided enough is enough. I have given them more than enough time to delete my account.
So I reported Bike Nashbar to the Better Business Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission.
Got a great deal from them - one of the items shipped a little date because it was on backorder, but very good experience overall. One of a handful of places where you get a person directly when you call them rather than the voice recognition system.
