I like Merlin cycles, got my new xt shifters and slx brakes from them, good overall service and not bad prices too.

Apart from the ones mentioned already i find the prices at wiggle are usually the cheapest of there abouts.

Used both Merlin and Chain reaction before, both have been very good.
A couple of mates have had problems with wiggle, both with late/lost deliveries and one had a damaged part that they would not replace or refund so I have never used them.

Have had 2 Fisher Prices
, first one was bought when they started making the frames in Korea a few
, probably about 19-20 years back, it was a elevated chain stay model, loved it as it was really good for climbing but I snapped that one just below the elevation so I got a replacement from them which was made in the US. It never missed a beat and only stopped using it when I bought my first front suspension bike about 7 years ago.
Still got a Fisher
frame in my shed, keep meaning to build it back up but needs a new crank shaft pin for it as it eats cranks.

A nice little project you got there Mr.Pike....

I built this for some mild trail work a while back with bits from Ebay and Chain reaction. You can get some bargain new bits from ebay if you look and bid hard enough. Saved me a few bob on a brand new Trailstar too...
