Questions about purchasing bicycles and parts

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?)

I've always known it to be 'Or-bay-ah' but being Spanish you would roll the 'R' to be a bit more like 'Orrr-bay-ah'

a few videos from their youtube channel should solve this pronunciation problem

Torpedo7 extending their free freight and discount period and final day extra 10% off.
The Outdoor section lost its discounts yesterday, but came back in the afternoon, and now whole lot extended another day.

Ivanhoe Cycles have the Cascade Fluid Pro Trainer for $189, normally $299. http://www.ivanhoecycles.com.au//bike-trainers/cascade-fluid-pro-trainer/prod_3829.php I bought one and used it today, seems solid with good feel similar to riding on the road, comes with a front wheel cradle thingy and a lifetime warranty. I'd never heard of them but the info I could find out about them seemed to be all positive. It weighs about 16kg with a 3kg flywheel that coasts quite a while.

Awesome, thanks Jason. Just ordered one for me and one for a mate. Perfect Christmas pressie; although his wife thought it was a bit weird when I called and started asking about his medical history!
