I did it a few months ago. After my second flat 50km in to a single ride, I went running back to the GP's.

Thanks for the feedback! Pro4S looks better imo, but if they more prone to flat, I will stick to the GP's.

Yep. Apparently each outlet is holding on until head office gives them a definite closing date, then they start discounting the stock, so keep an eye your local Goldcross!

Columbia outlet on Little Bourke in Melbourne is clearing out last year's Omnifreeze shirts, $50 down to $20.

I perspire like a warthog, so I'm something of a connoisseur when it comes to sweat-wicking clothing, and these are excellent. Google will throw up a bunch of glowing reviews as well.

That's just my experience. Could have been pure bad luck and I'm sure someone else somewhere in the world has had the exact opposite experience.

Yeah use the pro 4 no problems. Some cuts no punctures though.

CRC are currently in their final day of a "price drop" sale - so should have 30% off components today. Not much time left however.

FYI, I looked at the PCS-9 weight, I found 45kg stated somewhere while that one at Pushys is 20kg.

Correct, however for most road bikers 20kg is ample; and as nice as the PCS-9 looks, who really needs three? If you were going to get three though, 'mega15' discount code brings them down even further to $74.22 each.

You can also currently get 105 cranks from PBK for about $90 each, only problem is you need to buy 8!

No one needs 3, but I'd be willing to split an order with 2 other Sydneysiders if the PCS-9 comes back in stock. $74 is a good price.

Great... now they're all sold (the PCS-9, not the other one ;) and not showing up at all =P
If anyone in Perth wants to pass one or more on, raising my hand.
