Cycling Gear Website Hints

I've decided it's time for some new cycling gear that isn't DHBC. Time to get rid of my tatty socks, amongst other things.

I could try Google but reckon I will get a more reliable answer here. Any hints on good websites for buying cycling gear?

Re: Missing the point on the new cycling laws

Carrington Road might be a more interesting issue given the new clearly marked bike path along a route the club rides. If we have any hassles we just have to change the route to go up Illawarra Road and Renwick Street. No cycleway there.

Re: Missing the point on the new cycling laws

It was fantastic to see so many people in the 28s today with their new bells. We were so much safer for them. It was still easier to yell at riders as we approached and passed, so we just need to work out a good opportunity to use them.
