I don't see any real value in the local bike shops if they don't stock basic items
You and I have very different ideas of what constitutes "basic items." That item is something I would not expect to just pick up at the nearest bike shop, but I bet they could have sold you a replacement chain. That's what I would consider a "basic item." So whenever I need something very specific and specialized, I shop online. When I need something basic and routine, I go to a local shop. There is value and convenience in both.
