Just under US$300 for the pair. Up there, yes, but super quick transit time (not that I was in a big hurry but fast is good).

Purchased a Garmin 520 for my wife from Slane Cycles.

Saved $60 and delivery was 7 days from order.

I will use them again.

$290 landed.

Only saved $40 over the Pushys price but more than that at others (I went on an average) .

I would've paid $40 for the Aus warranty personally.

You make a good point but my experience with Garmin wasn’t enough to justify the extra. Anyway, this post is about online experience, which I had a good one from Slane if anyone was considering using them.

Wiggle: couple k of bits and peices, my biggest yet. Order Thursday 16/11, deliver Sunday 19/11. Sounds great aye? Except they left it at the door. I was 150km away, and had no idea until I checked the tracking. Was still there Monday am :D DHL fwiw.

Rapha: Over the counter job, Melb. store. Had a gift voucher and cannot use online (store bought....so remember kiddies!). Unfortunately I forgot the voucher, so paid in cash and gave my wife the card in lieu. Not being a cyclist herself I guess I'll get it back eventually. 8) :lol: 3 weeks from order to deliver. Keep that in mind folks, as it's not unusual. Realities of stock limits and fatso sizing....
