Cell bikes have Beto Floor Pump Alloy w/Gauge on special for $10 - ends Wednesday 24/3. Seems pretty cheap to me, could be handy for a spare.

2 Mini LED lights for $10 from Kathmandu. Stocks are unlikely to last long I would guess, i picked up 4 this arvo. Every helmet in the country should have one of these on them for extra visibility. I've been using them for a year and they def earn a lot more respect from drivers as they give you some dimension having one on your helmet and a normal light on your seat tube/handlebar etc.
Replaceable batteries too although at this price the whole unit is cheaper then the batteries

Current Ride: Giant 2010 TCR Advanced 1
Hi Vis Micro Fleece Vest from Torpedo 7 $8.99

That is not cheap.

Masi Speciale CX 2008 - Brooks B17 special saddle, Garmin Edge 810
Amen, good site that one.
Booko is also a great site for checking up the costs of books.
Specialized S-Works Roubaix (With electronic Ultegra, oooo the boogey man)
Available from Velogear for $33 with free shipping for orders over $39 for Easter.
You can buy the same lights here Deal Extreme for $80.16 USD with free shipping. I order stuff from them all the time, shipping takes about 2 weeks from order to arrival (except during Chinese new year, which took 3, but not during Christmas which took 1 week order to door )
But do Deal Extreme (overseas - Hong Kong ?) offer hassle-free warranty? I've heard they can be very difficult to deal with when something goes wrong. Local warranties are usually more reliable
Freedom Machine Prahran - Has a few plastic tubs of gear marked at 50% off, some of their own branded gear, jerseys, gillets, skins, knicks
Abbotsford Cycles - has 2 racks of 50% off, mostly netti winter gear, some tioga
If you've got a $10 head, get a $10 helmet
DX can be a bit slow but they have *always* fixed up returns for me. (On the other hand it's mainly because the product was dead on arrival or the wrong product shipped, a lot )
I won't mention stores, but warranty from my closest store has been be a lot worse than DX to me.
On the other hand kudos to Cell, are pretty good that way.
2010 Cannondale SuperSix Hi Mod Liquigas 60cm
>$9000 bike advertised in a Bicycling Australia classified (Qld) for sale $1800 - groupset alone is worth more than the asking price! 60cm too big for me
