Cell Azure Bib Short Black/Sky Blue $19.95, 48 Hour Special so I have no idea when the sale ends.

I have no idea what these are like, I just posted because $19.95 seems cheap for bibs.

Curious to know what you bought. I've just spent about 1/2 an hour checking out these "specials" and couldn't find a single item that I can't buy elsewhere cheaper.

Lots of bits and bobs for mtb/BMX/cruiser/skater gear.
There are discount road shoes but perhaps not as much roadie stuff discounted as the other types.

Seriously? that stuff is so cheap. You do need the right size though, as a lot of the items are weird sizes.

e.g Louis garneau montana XT2 MTB shoes. $60 at pushys (after discount), $90 at evans cycles and $180 on some other online stores.

http://www.pushys.com.au/louis-garneau- ... -2012.html

The list price is before the 40% discount and when you add it to cart it applies the discount, are you factoring this in?

When I searched for make/model sizes I found a Cassons listing of the same sale stock with some size equivalents or simpler to read details to search their one text page for sizes of matches.
http://www.cassons.com.au/IN_Listing.as ... 0000000807
Pushys note that it is special order 3-4 days to ship sounds like they're fronting for Cassons warehouse.
The cheap prices seem to be on the very small sizes... there has to be some benefit for people with small feet eh ;)
The yellow red blue Gaerne "Spy" had me dis-interested but going back like looking at a fatal fashion crash, too small though.

The 40% is off the items/categories listed when you hit those banners. The shoes are special priced but not 40% further.

+1 :lol: No-one needs to see my mammal-toe that badly.

I bought a few of these Continental bib-knicks today in black (http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=70225), since I have a couple in white and are very comfy. 2.5x the price but that's the price of modesty IMHO. :mrgreen:

http://www.kathmandu.com.au/cycle-floor ... black.html

Bought one of these Kathmandu floor pumps for $25 bucks in store/OOS online. Seems to be a badged Giyo, similar to

http://www.cellbikes.com.au/Giyo-High-P ... tain-Bikes

but with a gauge down the bottom and a std head rather than a dual head.

The RRP is obviously a rip off, but for 25 bucks its slightly cheaper than from Cell, and Kathamandu has stores everywhere.

My first impressions is that its a decent pump, small diameter and a steel tube. Went up to the 70PSI for the hybrid tyres fairly easily and without issues. Not sure about higher pressures.

Bike fridays are selling at pushies for just under $2000 AUD. Considering that they sell for just under $2000 US (+ gst , import duty etc) from the manufacturer, this is probably as cheap as you are ever likely to find them (unless you find one that has fallen off the back of an airplane).

They are not displayed on their website, but rather bike exchange

Didn't the code expire yesterday?

edit: apparently not, it still works. Weird in the email to me it said expiry was July 26th.

Also it's a generic code: RSFDM0713

Velogear.com.au has $2 flat rate postage, but only till 9-00 am 1/08. Handy for those little odds and ends that I would usually bundle up when I buy something that qualifies for free shipping.
