I like using 4wp on 72nd & Federal if I need new stuff. They help quick, have a lot of recovery gear in stock, and it is on the way home from work for me. The ultimate place for cool stuff however are the pull n save yards to me, my favorite is I 76 & pecos. I keep a running list of everything I want, and go hunting all the time. Also everyone knows CL.

Yes, I was definitely wanting to go hunting through a scrap yard for random odds and ends. I'll check that place out.

REI is akin to Wal-Mart for outdoor gear, sort of inevitable if you're a fun hog. You can try and avoid by using other shops where possible (Neptune, Bent Gate, Edge Works/Bike Doctor, Wilderness Exchange, Confluence Kayaks, Boulder Outdoor Center, Araphoe Cyclery, etc.). Although realize that a significant number of the manufacturers themselves are anti-OHV and so you often have to weigh suitable gear against political stances. If you're into any backcountry sports you will inevitably buy from a company who turns your money around to the SUWA, Sierra Club or otherwise. You will not outfit your climbing rack, put together a backcountry skiing kit, get your river running fix or buy your equipment for tackling the Colorado Trail without giving significant amounts of money to anti-OHV groups.

I've purchased several sets of tires from Performance Wheel & Tire over at Santa Fe and Oxford. They keep a lot of tires in stock, so you can go look at the tread pattern and compare actual size of tires.

i'd rather spend money with a small business that only donates small amounts of money to a cause i hate than a huge corporation that gives millions to lots of organizations that i hate.

and i don't shop at walmart either.
