$199, comes out to be around $208 shipped.

Gotta be a mistake, because every single other Contour camera on the site is US shipping only. But it does work, mine just shipped yesterday. I suppose it could just be that nobody likes green, so they're got extra stock and are allowing overseas shipping, but I doubt it.


I recently picked up a Kryptonite New York lock from Amazon US for around 60% of the cost when purchased in Australia. However they would not ship a cheap torque wrench so it seems to be a bit hit and miss as to OS shipping.

I just had a pair of these gloves delivered, they look to be the real deal, including a kosher tag. They are probably seconds, there is a bit of an imperfection on the back of the right hand glove.
The postage took a couple of weeks.

I think exchange rates, shipping and gst are the usual suspects, right?? ;)

I've used BackCountry before (well, I have an account there so I must have purchased something from there ages ago :P ). No problems with them when purchasing ski gear.

You've got to be careful with the red groupset on first glance it looks like it's about $200 cheaper than anywhere else. But they've listed a 1070 cassette instead of a 1090 XG which is about $180 cheaper.

On the subject of Torpedo7 - I was going to post about their rollers (they're bare bones granted, but for $99 plus P&H, seems okay), but any thoughts on the Tioga 480 Lumen light they have for $35? See http://www.torpedo7.com.au/products/TGLIHNNSP

(I'm a big believer in the adage of "if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.". This is a great price for a light of that power...)

I saw that light on pushys as well and it is also heavily discounted at around the same price. I tried searching for some info on it online but there is nothing. Seems like a good deal, but since I need a light for commuting, I needed something reliable and with a long run time. With the lack of information about the light I couldn't confirm either of these so didn't end up buying it. I am also low on money but if I wasn't I would definately buy the light just to try it out.

Beware that battery pack (as shown in the image) if you ever go riding in the wet. I got that style with my DX version and as soon as they get wet, the cardboard end caps soak up the water and 'rot' the electronic components underneath. Look for a version with the rubber boot cover (I had to buy one when the other failed) and even then, seal all the joints with silcone sealant.

The Tioga 480 looks like it's worth a punt at that price.

Thanks Sven and others. I agree that $35 is pretty low-risk, but given I'm riding really, really dark country roads (Traralgon South; 170kms south-east of Melbourne) in the dead of winter, I'm inclined to take Philipthelam's approach, and go with something I can find a bit more info on. At this stage - for anyone who's interested! - top of my list is Niterider's Lumina 650 (see http://www.wiggle.co.uk/niterider-lumin ... ess-light/ ).
