Best place to buy drive train parts on-line?

It seems like every time I need a cassette, or chainrings, I have to spend an hour going through 4 or 5 different sites trying to find the best deals, if I can find what I need at all. Especially chainrings.

Like right now, I need a 42 chainring for a 130 BCD, on my touring bike. I don't need anything fancy. Nashbar has nothing. Performance has nothing. Airbomb........what is up with the amazing slow Airbomb site? Is it my computer, or is Airbomb the slowest site in the world?

Is there a good discount site, that I don't know about, that has a good selection of drivetrain parts, and fast shipping?

I think your "mileage may vary" between different parts/stores/day of the week etc.
Is this a good buy?

Yeah, I think I posted rashly. I looked a little deeper and found some good sites.

performance SUCK!! thats all.

PBK is great if they have what are u looking for (as somebody said). Universal bikes or something like that does it pretty good.

42T??? wonder if a shimano 7 sp will do it... check at ebay.
