Best place for shimano mtb shoes in Melb?

Postby MikeyD360 » Thu Mar 24, 2011 5:22 pm

Hey guys,

Visiting for the weekend (formula 1 yay!) and want to get a shimano SPD set for the bike.
Visited BSC and CBD cycles, no joy for size 50...

Any suggestions on where I should go in or around CBD?

Cheers guys!

I'd suggest Wiggle on-line. If you know your size why bother with the premium price charged locally?

If you can make your way out to Altona Salter Cycles always have Shimano shoes on Bike Exchange at very competitive prices.

Never used them myself as I bought my shoes online elsewhere. Was highly tempted though.

I went to BSC (AT) QVB and they had a few in size 50. I went for the M087 and ended up with a size 49 and grabbed M324 pedals while there. Pretty happy. Cheers for the help gang!
