Questions about purchasing bicycles and parts
That is a nice bit of kit Biciboy. And I do find myself going "well if I am going to spend 90 bucks on the T7 stand i might as well spend 130 and get the PCS-9"
Then again I am cheap , so always looking for the cheapest option to get away with. I dont intend on doing anything "major" as I dont have the experience so figured a cheap stand will suit the purposes of cleaning and minor alternations
Unless someone has a MASSIVE sale on Park Tool/Feedback or Tacx stands soon of course
Cell bikes is having some crazy cheap Vittoria Zaffiro 700x25c wirebead tyres on their clearance list, not going to be useful if you are racing, but good for commuting and training rides.

A friend has one and I used it to service his bike. Frankly, it was disappointing. My Spin Doctor was a lot more expensive but a pleasure to use.
For the coin, the Aldi stand is terrific. No doubt a Park Tool stand would be better, but also much pricier...
I've only time I've had an issue with the non-QR clamps slipping is when clamping the full-sus MTB on an odd angle to get the rear brake line as close to vertical as possible for bleeding- never a problem with the roadie.
Being steel and a four-leg design, it's very stable - but not super portable due to weight. Still packs up small enough to go into the car if you want to take it to races etc though.
The only thing I have about the Aldi stand is the clamps inability to hold an unbalanced load at a specific angle but seeing as I bought it solely to sit on my locker at work just in case I can live with it for so few dollars.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Agree with this. I need to get a BB/fork stand and a better workstand.

I have the Tacx stand and it's great, but sometimes I do find it a bit of a chore to remove wheel and then to fit it onto the stand. Especially if attaching by the forks due to lawyer's lips and actually having to unscrew the quick release on both wheel and workstand. Just my 2cents, for fork/BB stand vs seatpost stand.
In Cycleworld Burwood today and happened to notice a very cool looking :
Scott CR1 Ultegra $2499 down from $3599
WEIGHT 7.24 kg / 15.96 lbs
^^ Looks a nice bike but think I'd still want 6800 ultegra for $2500.

I was building up a nice little cart and then it went and expired on me, giving me a 5% off instead...
Topeak accessories on sale at T7: http://www.torpedo7.com.au/division/bik ... paign=bike
Got an email from PBK with a mystery discount code of up to 20%. Went to their website and tested it, 20% discount but then I noticed the prices of stuff I was looking at earlier in the are now........15-20% more expensive. What a coincidence.
That's uhhhh illegal? ACCC?
Any VAT export issues?
