Jenson USA have 35% of with code "shoes" on teva pivot clipless (and also teva links)

(says its a special code for subscribers but I am pretty sure anyone can use it)

http://www.jensonusa.com/Teva-Pivot-Cli ... tain-Shoes
(probably the most comfortable walking clipless shoe out there on account of the smaller reinforced shank integral to clipless shoes)

With postage works out for about $150 AUD ... which is still about $30 cheaper than what you are likely to find anywhere else ... what to speak of if you throw in a few other bits an pieces to take advantage of the outrageous postage rates from the US
GO! RUN!! GAAAH!!!

*1% surcharge if you pay with Paypal


That's weird. PayPal doesn't allow it's sellers to apply surcharges to paypal payments.

On ebay they don't. Retailers can do what they want.

No they can't. It's against the paypal user agreement: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/u ... .x=en_US#4

Specifically 4.6:

4.6 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions.

This is Not a GP4000 offer, I am using GP plains right now that these are based on and I am not impressed. I won them and money is tight :lol: the tyres are only worth 20 bucks each. Good for training, bad for everything else.

Anyone seen good pricing on 6800 parts? Think it's time to change.

Go DA9000, you can do it and have change from AU1600 landed :D I just did, it's brilliant!

Seriously though 6800 is supposedly quite the sleeper setup.

If that is in reply to me, that is the price for the GP4000s not the newer GP4000S 2 which are currently at $68 each on merlin

If not then sorry, ignore this post.

Or you could buy the Di2 cable kit and the 6800 cassette and chain I have listed for a total of $455 and then buy the 6870 (11sp) bits individually from Ribble to finish the kit.

Cable kit $375
Cassette and chain $80
Shifters $266.58
Front mech $189.08
Rear mech $201.48

Total $1112.14 vs about $1200 ($1050 + GST and import fees) for the 6770 (10sp) group

You'd be short the brakes but $90 better off and you'd have an 11 speed group! :)
