Well, I have a new source of Velocity parts here in NJ and from what I hear they're stocking their small warehouse/display. Definately rock bottom prices and I didn't notice any big dogs around either.

Depends on what I need. Some things I go directly to the manufacturer others I use some sort of dealer. Motor stuff usually comes from Teague, buy ups stock, but I've ordered cleats directly from Accon, steering from Bing and other stuff from Rex. It's been a while since I actually needed anything so when it's time to start shopping I'll have to start looking again.

cheapest for the same things place...
Local dealer has better prices than most suppliers like teague, dollar...etc..
Usually go to the specialist for the application.
