A well managed shop with decent volume gets free shipping on a lot of stuff, so that's not a concern.
Good point, surplus sellers like Random Bike Parts will get some smokin' deals sometimes if it just so happens they have the one thingy you need but yeah, the full catalog sites like Nashbar and Jensen USA, usually within a trivial margin.
