Are you a Hybrid Shopper?

For the most part I do my bicycle related shopping all online. There are a few exceptions like clothing and helmets, those items I prefer to try on because my body isn’t quite a standard fit. I’ve got short arms, long torso, short inseam and a big head. Good enough visual for you?

When I do shop online, I will check out some of my normal haunting grounds such as Ebay, Amazon and the various online brands like Performance, Nashbar and Pricepoint.l often will search for coupon codes before I start shopping. A good source would be Frugaa.com. This site actually gives me coupon codes for all sorts of online retailers as well as some of the sites I mentioned above.

I know that there’s a big push to shop at a LBS, trust me, I do. I usually will got there to purchase an actual bike or other hard goods such as parts like chains, tires, tubes, lubes and helmets. So in a sense you could say that I’m a hybrid shopper, online and LBS. Would you consider yourself a Hybrid Shopper too or do you stick one or the other?

    I too have a body that’s hard to fit for cycling wear. Unfortunately, the local shops seen to only stock sizes for the lean biker types, not pudgy guys like me. I end up ordering clothes online just to try on. Most things get returned, as bike sizes don’t match other types of clothes.
