Well if you like a challenge with shipping and Customs there's been a Leitra for sale in San Fransisco, as seen on BROL. I think that he's just lowered the price from US$4000 to US$3500 Or Best Offer, been advertised 3 weeks.

Maybe an excuse for a holiday in the US?

Andrew,

If you want to try out a Sunrider then I can put you in touch with the owner of the one in Adelaide.

Andrew, any update from Mark on the Milan SL Carbon? I see that Mark also has a Cruzbike Vendetta 2.0 in his stable.

Now that looks like fun... But cold
