The Tug store will also be refurbed and be come 'On the Rivit' as well, but will be stocking Trek and Merida.
Just have to move all the old Giant stock. Some decent deals, but not much range in terms of model and size.

between my friends we've bought:
1 roadie, 5 mtbs, 3 flatbars and 2 cruisers/ladies - all of them have been given great service, and the majority got a decent discount (25% of my flatbar, my mate got a 15% discount on a brand new 2012 model that hadn't been delivered yet).
Being my LBS, I always get great service, and have all 3 of my bikes serviced there...
A certain bike store in Phillip didn't tighten my mates stem and it came loose while riding... not cool as he couldn't steer it. Took it back, they re-tightened it and 5kms later, the brake levers weren't re-tightened.

I went to a few bike shops before getting my latest bike from Smiths cycles in Fyshwick. Of all the bike shops they have been the nicest, most helpful and have a good sense of humour. You can tell that they genuinely love geeking out about bikes and have a passion for cycling that can't be faked.
I purchased my commuting flatbar from them, a Marin Point Reyes 29er. Already thinking about getting a Fuji 29er mountain bike from them for some off road madness!!!
Also, they had competitive prices and gave me 10% accessories when I bought my bike.
Oh and clip in cycling shoes, they are fantastic!!!
