Craigslist or sometimes eBay.

If you're trying to find the cheapest place to find a certain thing...
You're too cheap to be owning it and probably won't/don't know how to take care of it.
This is proven through science

It doesn't matter for how cheap you get it, if you actually want it, pay for it.

Track Supermarket is the cheapest

Not once you factor in shipping to CA from Japan.

No we're saying just by the damn thing, there's not a huge noticeable difference in prices on the chainrings from shop to shop (trust me I've looked)

I am.
It's just the whole "I want the most expensive shit that will give me the most street cred even though I don't know much about it" mentality that irks me.
Kinda like the whole "what's the lowest you'll go" type of craigslist people.
It's a phase though...I think...so whatever.

Find a used one! I think I might have an extra black 47 tooth.

I never had to pay customs for products from Japan. If you buy multiple items from Track Supermarket they will try to put everything in one package and I think that might help shipping costs. However, TS is not the most reliable to do business with IMO.
