    Its a double-edged sword; people go online so they don't carry things. People come in to buy and you don't have it, they go online. I have run into this as well.

    My lbs are good, honest guys. They don't have a huge selection of parts, but I don't have a problem ordering things from them and waiting.

    That said, they get my business mostly because they have certain things (brands) that I can't get easily elsewhere. Exclusivity is key. in I also chose to have them build me a custom wheelset even though I could have done it cheaper online. I want the local service and warranty support for something like that.

    Otherwise I'm not opposed to looking for deals online and have saved hundreds of dollars doing it.
