I am looking for different types of lubricants, chains, small metal parts such as a Tubus rack-hinge and just small things that wear easily off -- so-called consumables. I am fed up to high prices locally, usually better to buy new stuff, reusing to the dogs. Which online shopping sites do you use for your small consumables?

For small consumables I tend to use the same places as for the large ones: if I'm going online it will be mainly to Wiggle or Chain Reaction (I'm UK-based, so these might not ship or be as competitively priced in other locales).
I do try and support my LBS, though, even if they're more expensive: better to pay 10% more and have the option of a well-stocked, local physical shop for urgent needs (or a slow chat) than save a bit of cash but left up a tree in the next emergency, but sometimes online savings are just too much to ignore ...
amazon.com (they have everything it seems)
I will also use a "shopping bot" like Google Shopping if I know the exact brand of what I am looking for. It will often find deals from online shops that I didn't even know about.
