Looking for special parts or accessories for a restoration or jazzing up an older vintage bike maybe for someone’s birthday or a Christmas present?  We can special order stuff at great prices from many vendors.

Here’s a short list:  Velo Orange (French-style focus), Merry Sales (SOMA, Nitto, Dia-Compe, other smaller boutique brands; their entire product catalog – w/out prices- can be viewed here), Compass Bicycles (home of Cycles René Herse, Bicycle Quarterly, one of the best quarterly journals on randonneuring-style bikes and related technologies and distributor of Grand Bois parts and accessories from Japan) and United Bicycle Supply (owners of BikeToolsEtc.com, their public website; excellent for repair parts for older bikes/components, awesome tool selection).
