Tubus front racks cheaper from Oz than in the UK.

Needs a through style fork mount though.

I have realised I seriously need a few new pairs of shorts. :oops: I'm down to about 4 good "summer" pairs - as in fit to be seen in public without causing a :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I often find the lycra perishes before the nappy is dead so i continue to use those ones under winter tights here for 7 months of the year - so who cares if they have a little hole in them or the lycra on the side is a bit see through. I mean when its -5, and they're underneath it doesn't matter. :lol: If anyone sees some better quality shorts on special, would you mind please posting a link.

must be dark blue, black or grey etc... for everyone else's sake. .. :twisted:



thanks heaps.

PBK have free shipping on baskets over $50 which is pretty quick - I ordered a Tubus Disco rack a few weeks ago and it was about a week for delivery. Basically like being in AUS :wink:

Also, Velogear are having a buy 1 get 1 free tyre sale - until Monday 9am. Just bought 2x Rubino Pro 700x28c for $42 shipped - if you sign up for the newsletter you also get $10 off, I forgot to put in the code :roll:

Cycling express have moonlight shield rear lights for $29 at the moment, usually $55-60. I've just bought a 2nd one as a helmet/bag light whilst cheap. $9 shipping, but free if over $90 so I picked up a couple of other things whilst I was there

Looking for BRIGHT LED lights? Can't go past this lot...silly prices

http://www.myled.com/led-sport-light/cycling.html

I purchased one and it's taken me through winter just fine, although I've never let it get wet. Battery life is fine and it's bloody bright...no complaints.

PS I have no connection with them

Does anyone have a consolidated list of the "short-time" sale pages for online bike shops?

E.g.:

2015 Merida Scultura 5000

Anyone got any experience with how these compare to either Sidi, Shimano or Giro in sizing?

I'd love to buy a pair from T7, but I'd prefer to pay the extra cash to buy locally than wait 2+ weeks for them to deliver. I'd happily pay for express postage if I got an order with a couple of days and not weeks.

I bought some of those bibs last Tuesday night and they arrived here in Adelaide for me on Tuesday this week. Pretty happy with that especially given the bargain pricing. Shorts come in a flashy little box with some extra goodies in there also.

I bought a pair of the Assos Uno bibs from Torpedo7 for $130 - they arrived in a week for me too. Agreed, fantastic presentation from Assos with the snazzy box, laundry bag etc. I'll be giving these shorts a good try out at Fitz's this weekend, and getting myself another pair with the free shipping offer from T7 at the moment. I've done a trainer session in them, and they work better for me than the Castelli's, so far at least

Back page Herald Sun there was Fuji Roubaix 1.4's for sale for at Amart Sports for $899 which seemed cheap RRP 1799 I think. Not a bad deal.

Is it bad that I now like Orbea that little bit more because of their helmet names?

(BTW, how do you pronounce Orbea? Awe-bee? Or-be-ah?)
