Any Specialized 2D helmet stockists in Adelaide CBD?

Postby HAKS » Wed Sep 23, 2009 10:35 pm

HI

I"ll be in Adelaide very briefly next week for a conference. Prob got an hour or so spare Tue arvo so just wondering if there are any bike shops in the CBD that stock Specialized S-works/2D helmets? All the shops here in Cbr have very limited stock 09 left and the 2010 models are still a while away.

Thanks

JT Cycles on Pultney St stocks Specialised gear and Bicycle Express has a huge range in general. You should give them a call and see what they have.

I was in JT on Pulteney yesterday and they had most Specialized helmets. Bicycle Express mainly had $550(!) Giro's, Bells and Met's, and Adura's.

Don't expect amazing service in JT though. I was in there for a good 15 minutes trying on helmets and no one said a word to me. I left without being spoken to.

I then went back to work and ordered the Met helmet I was trying on at JT from Wiggle for $140 CHEAPER!

Which won't have an Australian Standards sticker so it's technically illegal to wear.... :twisted:

Meh.

If I get pulled over by police and they check the Aust. Standards sticker on my helmet, I will throw it out.

I will also put reflectors, brakes and a bell on my bikes.

I didn't even get a reflector or bell with my road bike :? and its just pointless to have a reflector when you have lights at night, but the wheel reflectors would be helpful and im sure most people dont even have that...

Yea the helment should be around $350 from the top of my head (if that matters)
