Where do you buy your gear?

I live close to a Performance Bicycle but the people who work there are completely useless. I'd rather buy the stuff online anyways just to piss off Krebs

Where do you people buy your gear? I'm looking for everything from spare tubes to luggage, tools and pumps.

I don't want to hear the support your dealer crap either because I just tried to support them and they gave me the 100 mile stare or didn't even bother to say hello when I walked through the door. TIA.

Right on...they're usually really good. Every once in a while there will be issues with stock on closeout stuff, but nothing that isn't found pretty much everywhere now and again.

The day I wear spandex is the day I need to just tuck my shit everywhere I go. I am not manly enough to pull that shit off and not look gay. I do need some sort of padding for my ass bones though. My shit is sore!

Your cycling days will be over very soon without a good pair of cycling shorts. Just save yourself the time and take a cheese grater to your taint instead.

Sure the seat will help, but anything rubbing on parts not used to being rubbed on will not feel good. Maybe you're different though.

Plus the spandex holds your junk up and out of the way, is hate to have to worry about sitting on my balls when going from standing to sitting. You can also wear baggy shorts on the outside, I have done that when doing a casual ride on the bike path but I can't ride without proper shorts.

I bought my bike from Spokes, some stuff from there, but most accessories I get from REI.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

So I gave in and bought some Canari shorts with the gel padding. Just tried them out today while I was running errands under my cargo shorts and I have to admit it does make it a lot more comfortable. It does feel weird when I'm not on the bike and walking around though. It feels like I dropped a massive load in my shorts and the lump of shit is waddling around back there like a tail

All of the above is true. I call it a diaper. The tri shorts aren't as bad, with a thinner pad and quicker drying, but you still feel like you took a small dump.
