Check your maths...

Purchase price inc free shipping = $1367

Duty = 5% of $1367 = 68.35

GST = 10% of ($1367 + $68.35) = 143.53

Total payable to Aus Govt = $211.88

Total cost of groupset inc gst, duty = $1578

This does not include potential brokerage charges.

Also note that you may not have to pay duty as bicycle parts are not dutiable. However sometimes you might get slugged with it if the customs declaration form isn't clear about what is inside the box.

But in that case, if duty isn't applicable, you're talking a grand total of $1503.70.

Thanks. For some reason I thought duty was 15%.

Bike Bug have a price matching policy but they take into account duty, GST, freight and presumably customs.

If you can get them to match based on duty and GST (they might forget about or ignore brokerage) that's a REALLY good price for an Australian stock groupset! Worth sending them an e-mail, if you're in the market, for sure.

A plug for BNA and research into Australian Customs Duty and GST charges. That should help on confirming calculations.

Bugger. I need to somehow get the forum to auto-censor anything in this thread that includes the phrase "free shipping"...

And for any Aussie retailers who are running deals, all you have to do is get in touch with me. The big Aussie and UK retailers are proactive but most of the Aussies businesses are missing out.

Ribble have a Shimano sale on at the moment which makes their 6870 Di2 gear stupidly cheap. You can piece together a shift kit including all cabling, battery and charger for under $1050, plus it can all be ordered separately to keep it under the duty threshold.

http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/product/t/di2

Alternatively you can get BikeBug to price match these prices and buy it all locally...

T7 on Fleabay has some hidden super specials incl:

VITTORIA Open Corsa Evo CX II Folding Road Tyre - 700 x 23c for $25.00

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=321342350170

EDIT: ... aaand they've changed the prices and reversed my li'l purchases: "A pricing update was done this morning that caused a whole lot of products to be given the wrong pricing". Bad show guys.

You can buy the same lights here Deal Extreme for $80.16 USD with free shipping. I order stuff from them all the time, shipping takes about 2 weeks from order to arrival (except during Chinese new year, which took 3, but not during Christmas which took 1 week order to door :) )

But do Deal Extreme (overseas - Hong Kong ?) offer hassle-free warranty? I've heard they can be very difficult to deal with when something goes wrong. Local warranties are usually more reliable


I haven't bought bike stuff, but in the two times I bought off them It was very disappointing as regards delivery. On one occasion I had to get a refund through the bank as I had paid by credit card.
Impossible to contact, no Repley's and did not answer a registered letter either.
Never again will I deal with them.

+1 for me too, 3 weeks since I ordered a bike bell (they were the first place I found on google that had bells with wide brackets for thick roadie bars) and a phone holder. Holder came last week, no sign of the bell.

99 Bikes at Macgregor in Brisbane has a set of Easton EA90 SLX with 10sp Shimano freehub for $649.

Apparently their supplier is clearing out all their Easton stock...

Someone please buy them, I'm getting ideas! :)

EDIT - They've just advised they're 10sp not 11sp

In the absence of data, I'll provide some: 15,000kms and only 2 punctures, average life of a tyre over 6,000kms.

Good to know you won't be buying any though, leave them to the folks who like 'em!
