Great experience with wheelbuilder.com. I had a set of ENVE wheels built up with I9 hubs, top quality parts and a skilled build at an incredible price. Not only did I get an excellent deal on a top tier quality product and build but the customer service was outstanding, they helped guide me through my build as far as part selection without just trying to up-sell. Excellent communication thought the process, I9 had a delay in my hub color choice and I was continually updated. Rich, Lisa who worked with me the most, and everyone else I may have spoke to, were amazing. They gained a customer for life.
It's a great solution for ultras because the spoked wheel offers more comfort over long distances than a carbon disk, yet I get the benefit of aero during the entirety of the race. Personal A/B testing (real world, not lab) has shown coupling the Aerojacket with a tight fitting kit and arrow helmet allows me often squeeze out 1.8-2 mph more over the course of the race than a non-aero set-up. (Regular helmet, spoked wheels, looser training kit).
Let me start off with...I'm not a small guy. 6', 240lbs. I wanted better wheels than what came with my Roubaix. I ride mountains roads, I ride on dirt roads, I commute in the cold. I wanted wheels that would do everything. I also wanted durability. I called Wheel Builder, and talked with a sales person. We decided on Belgium rims and Chris King hubs. Even with my upgrades, they still came in cheaper than just about everything else I was looking at, and the build quality is AMAZING. I am more than pleased. Great to work with, and amazing wheels..

I shop for bike gear. A lot. Bikes, wheels, components, bibs and jerseys, helmets, shoes, power meters, and all sorts of tires, cassettes, tools, and food are on my shopping list for new reviews and to keep me and my test bikes dialed in.
Since I do have a family that I also like to spend time with and a budget that I need to keep to, shopping at an online bike store and buying bike parts online is usually my most time-efficient and cost-effective option. When I shop online I can usually find the best prices on the range of enthusiast-level bike gear I evaluate for the In The Know Cycling reviews.
The problem I run into, and I imagine you do too, is that there are soooo many bike stores out there selling bike gear and bike parts online, a lot of them you may have never heard of and those you may hear of for the first time when you do a product search. It can be hard to figure out which stores are the real deal, and among those, which have the best prices, selection, and most satisfied customers.
The ratings are data-supported, analytically developed, and only compare online bike shops that serve road cycling enthusiasts, those of us roadies that are regular, committed riders who are serious and knowledgeable about the bike gear we buy. I update this review and ranking every quarter.
We want to buy bike gear at stores that have the lowest net price. The net price includes the base price of the product, additional shipping cost if the online bike shop charges them, and any taxes that are included in the price.
Many readers also ask about the import costs when they buy at a UK and EU-based online store and have it shipped to the US, Canada, or another non-EU country. You want to know what the net price would be of something you buy at the EU-based online store versus what it would cost you if you bought it at an online or physical store in your own country.
First, the better online bike stores and places to buy bike parts online work with shippers who have figured out how to work with customs to minimize or avoid charges. For example, some stores will break up sales and shipments of high-priced items (like your front and rear wheels) or declare shipment values that are below the level that triggers customs involvement. You can do this too by keeping the total invoice on the items you purchase on any order below the amount that will trigger import charges.
Depending on the state you live in, US online stores may or may not charge sales tax for goods delivered to you. Their pricing, selection, and service are also often better than local bike shops. So for this same wheelset, it is worth comparing the cost of buying the wheelset from a US online store versus the customs imposed charges of a UK store.
We want to buy from online bike stores that have a good range of the products, brands, and models we road cycling enthusiasts ride, wear, and use. There are many other stores that cater mostly to recreational or mountain bike cyclists, triathletes, hikers, runners, etc., but carry a few lines or products that enthusiasts might buy as well. Finding what most enthusiasts look for at these stores is a bit like finding needles in a haystack. Your time is better spent going to stores that specialize in selling needles and very little if any hay.
For example, an online bike shop that carries an Ultegra groupset but only in one or two combinations of crank lengths, chainset and cassette ratios would rate 1 for selection. If they only carry a couple of the major wheelset brands and a lot of less widely distributed, often national brands, I would rate them 1. If they sell a wider selection of brands and/or models but you usually need to special order many of these, what they really have is limited and rate a 1 in my book.
Knowing the overwhelming number of you are here on your way to buying something rather than merely browsing with no intention to buy in the near term, I work hard to provide you regularly updated links to the lowest net price, in-stock listings for each product in my reviews after looking at all the stores in the rankings above that sell online and have high customer satisfaction ratings.
The good news is that there are many business models that online bike stores are using to be successful and provide you the combination of price, service, selection, and support you want these days. Some of these models may suit you better than others and can help you choose between them in addition to the ratings.
I got a great deal on a Zipp 353 NSW wheelset from All4Cycling, an Italian shop. Hundreds lower than any other shop. Did have to pay a modest import duty, maybe $50 or so, but also saved a bundle on sales tax.
This is the first time I have seen a review of online bike stores. I agree with Merlin Cycles being high in the list. I have had great experience with them even though they are UK and I am in the US. I buy my expensive upgrades from Merlin. JensonUSA another good site that I mainly use for lowest price components, such as cassettes.
From Friday 24th February all Hope factory built wheels will have the new Pro5 hubs. I am in the process of updating the website but the new prices will be applicable immediately. Delivery of the new wheels will start on 1st March.
Hope are replacing the Pro4 and RS4 hubs with the new Pro5, which will be available in both Centerlock and 6-bolt disc mounts. Currently Factory built wheels are still being built with Pro4 and RS4 hubs but all current versions will be able to be ordered with Pro5 hubs for (expected) delivery in the 2nd week of March. Pricing will be updated shortly (there is a price increase for Pro5 hubs) 59ce067264
