Competitive Cyclist has the Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheelset for $606 inc shipping to Aus. Next cheapest I think is Merlin Cycles (AT) $634

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:

For people in Brisbane: Bums on Bikes clearance from their old Strathpine store for the next 2 weeks: 50% or more off bikes, frames, other items, etc and 70% off clothing.

Picked up some profile aero bars, sugoi wool socks and jersey.

Saw lots Eddy Merckx frames around $1000 mark. Jamis Xenith Comp Carbon Road 105 for $1250 reduced form $2400 - all sizes 48-61 and womens 48, 51, 54 I think. Jamis Xenith Ultegra Di2 around $2000/2400 mark can't remember.

From what I understand they donot have enough room at their one and only store now hence trying to clear excess stock. I notice that their old premises is up for auction if you are interested :)

T7 now selling felt MTB's

I'd keep an eye on them for when they start doing their bike sales. The KHS bikes go on crazy cheap prices

It's a stark contrast between this CE shill account and the guy from Cell, who is open about who he is and responds to queries.

Disclosure - I have no affiliation with either store, having not even purchased from either one)

Except they're $62 with Wiggle (who actually stock the advertised product) and they deliver fast and also have a free shipping over a certain value option. No-one compares in-shop prices with online to determine a no-brainer. Everyone knows they're ridiculously inflated.

Decent wheel comparison here:

Highlight would be the $235-shipped Vuelta Corsa Superlite 1500gram 20H/24H (after applying $10-off 'Newby34' coupon). Similar specs to $374 Pro-lite Bracciano from CRC.
