Questions about purchasing bicycles and parts

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.

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.

You do realise $606US is actually $680AUD right?

Got me there - most other sites do a straight $AUD representation for prices, so I just assumed it was the same for the aforementioned site. :oops:
