Questions about purchasing bicycles and parts
BDOP cycling are offering some DIY wheels - great value. Works out to about $287AUD with the ABG upgrade Sourcing these parts myself would cost me close to $400! Only thing to be aware of is that you'll have to build them yourselves/get a shop to do it... IMO that's a plus
Recieved mine and the package came in at 1607g on the kitchen scales (20/24). Very impressive for a 23mm wide and 28mm deep rim!
For reference a truing stand can be had for around $45 http://www.cyclingdeal.com.au/buy/bike- ... AhFS8P8HAQ
You can use a bike frame or the yellow/white pages as an improvised dishing tool.
Ivanhoe cycles has a bunch of ex demo and ex race team Giant TCR Advanced SL's in Dura-Ace 9000 mechanical and SRAM red 22 from around $2899. I think they also had Di2 Dura-Ace models as well. But I had to run out in a hurry before I bought one. Damn it was close.
They are not new but the ones I had a quick look at looked pretty mint. You can find some of them on bikeexchange
Many thanks! I got my free lights!
AvantiPlus Preston have a heap of NOS Avamti frames (most ex. forks) for <$200.
Just picked up a Questa Team 2012 Di2 for the missus.

Thanks for the lead, just bought 2 frames (FS MTB for next summer and a flat bar roadie for commuting) and another guy here at work bought a 29er MTB! Both my frames for under $200!
BTW, I spoke to my local AvantiPlus and they are in the process of chasing up a matching fork. Looks like the total cost will be in the range of $350 for frame and fork.
My 20/24 set is on its way thanks
Wiggle have Fulcrum Quattro wheelset for $273.08 and you'd get free shipping

A steal at that price
Nil stock of either set though?
out of stock
Thanks for that!
Picked up a 29" for myself and a 26" for the other half. Under $200 delivered to NSW.
Now to get all the components. I'm totally lost though. Don't know my mtb gear like I do my roadie!

Ribble has a 10% off code to celebrate the end of the tour TDF10 For loads of components their prices are already the best I can find, an extra 10% off makes it a no-brainer. Bought myself a load of stuff for building up the cheap frames from earlier in the week.
Plus their shipping is awesome. I've has stuff arrive in 3 days before. Almost always within a week.
Yeah, shame every groupset below Ultegra is always out of stock.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.
