I need to buy some spares for my TI.

In particular I need new delrin bearings for the furler, a new set of races for the furler bearing, and some spares for my mirage drives.

Where is the best source to purchase these items?

A local dealer should be fine as long as they are on the ball. Otherwise, Austin Kayak in Texas: https://www.austinkayak.com/

Dealers don't carry a lot of parts in stock, at least not the dealers I've seen. You can order from them, but you'll get faster service from Austin Kayak online who I've found to be excellent.

My Hobie dealer is a hour and a half away. I've been trying for two years to get the redesigned TI seat clips from my him. Everytime I go there he tells me he'll have them the next time I visit. It's now a never ending running joke.

Austin (Canoe and) Kayak has always been able to help me out with TI parts, including some of the warranty / retrofit part kits for the aka riviets and seat clips. And the best part is, they ARE my local Hobie dealer! 8) If I really need something right away, I can get a pick ticket for their warehouse, or if I don't want to drive across town then their standard shipping still gets to me by the next day.
