edit - you'll struggle to get Specialized gear shipped internationally unless you find a freight forwarder.

Email them mate sales@bikenow.com.au

They are a Specialized concept store so they have everything.

I went to their new store while in Melbourne a few months ago. Great blokes and service. They also offered to ship items to me in Sydney if I ever wanted to buy anything...

I'd just like to jump in here and stop any rumours from spreading further - bikeNOW don't sell Specialized products online at all. bikeNOW stock the full range of Specialized product and are indeed a concept store, but we don't sell Specialized online.

If you're looking for a huge range of Specialized product, come in to the store and see us. If you purchase your Specialized goods in our store and find that you need them shipped to another destination, we can arrange that for you no problems.

Hope that clears up any misconception.

Hey guys,

Thanks for your help, ended up paying a bit extra and buying my gear from the place I bought my bike. Sometimes its better to just let the pros handle it even if it does cost a little extra.

Thanks for your recommendations

Any ideas about how best to get a hold of Specialized products that aren't available in Australia?

I'm looking for a frame set available in some overseas markets (US, Europe) but only available as a complete bike in Australia.
