im training for club racing but dont race yet :)

i went for the wired model with a DT swiss rim which ended up just under $1000 AU
if you go for a wireless model you will get hit with import tax's and GST plus there a extra $200 straight off the bat

this is the one i got and with delivery taking less then 1 week and the great packaging i would highly recomend that store
plus our $$ is so strong now on the US you would be mad to miss out buying now if you have the cash

got my power tap all hooked up today and it seems to working fine which is great
no riding though as my back is a bit rooted again :roll:

although i did have a quick spin on the trainer to get it all set up and man i wish my outdoor sprint speed was the same as i can do on the trainer

Good stuff. Not sure if you know Ross Hayter, he is a coach from up your way. I have just started seeing him and his is very good so far. May be worth a look to set you straight with some training guidelines and help using the PM.

To dig up an old thread, I've seen a NIB PT Comp system (not built to a wheel) advertised for $650-$700 new (private sale).
Reading through this thread it sounds like a good deal.
I'm almost tempted to sell my Edge 305 to cover some of the cost for one of these......

I think you can get them new from the US for that price now...which will give you a warranty.

I had a new one delivered to my door from the US in January for just under $650.

Well that takes the pressure off!
Plus having the warranty is worthwhile.

ExcelSports. But the exchange rate was around .95 at the time.

TLL - if I were you, I wouldn't touch *any* bike part unless it came with a warranty. :)

Whoo-hoo.

BTW - what time is it over there? You seem to pop up just about all hours of Australia.
