Aldi has the $40 repair stands for sale this week. Just picked one up and did full maintenance on my commuter. $40 well spent, no point in spending $100+ imho.

Has anyone spotted Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 C50 Clincher wheels going cheap? Or HED Jet 5 clinchers?

I know Cell a while back had Zipp 404 Firecrest clinchers going at $1899, but they no longer have them. I'm in the market for replacement wheels after an off on the weekend. :cry:

I've been looking around Wiggle and even with my discount, the cost is a bit painful. I'm also wary of the import duties for anything above $1000. :shock: I have some time to wait as the bike is in at the LBS getting checked over and some other repairs.

I was about to go ahead an order the Conti GP4000 deal from Wiggle, but I see they are folding tyres, I haven't used folding before, is there something I should know or are they the same as wire bead ??
Can someone shed some light onto this , probably basic, question .

No functional difference, as far as fitting them. Folding bead are simply lighter & easier to store.

Hi burto was this the deal with the 5 inner tubes and two tyres? Or the two tubes? as the deal with the two tubes only comes with colour tyres.

There is no difference in terms of installation - go ahead and buy.

$1799 for 7900 C50 clinchers at http://mymountain.com.au/p/5160462/shim ... elset.html (I'd ring first to check they actually have them in stock as they have been discontinued now)

US$1495 for Zipp 404 clinchers at http://www.bicycleoutfittersindy.com/pr ... pp404s.htm (deduct 15% discount for first time buyers if you use the coupon from the front page)

There shouldn't be any duty or GST payable on wheels if buying from o/s

No GST on wheels coming from OS?

Maybe if they are under a 1000AUD.

Otherwise you are paying tax sonny. 8)

I've bought 2 sets from o/s both over $1K, first set I didn't know any better and neither did customs and got charged Duty/GST, second set I didn't and customs gave me all the numbers I needed for exemption. I'll check my emails and see if I can find details.

Can't find the relevant email, must of deleted it (it was a few years ago). Looking on customs website it's not clear what is or isn't exempt but for bicycle wheels it lists Tariff Item 87149200 and Stat code & unit 07 which should give you the exemtion.
