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!

Nice one!

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.

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 :D

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.


My 20/24 set is on its way thanks

I find Wiggle's stock availability for wheels quite frustrating... Especially for the popular models.

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.

Yeah, shame every groupset below Ultegra is always out of stock.

Meh, I'd be reasonably happy paying their going rate for 105...

Picked up 2 29er frames for $100 and I might head back to grab a dually to play with (dually monstercross?). Frame prices are ridiculous - makes me wonder what wholesale is?

Have a chat to Ray himself, great bloke and he will find the frame for your if he has it.

Well I managed to find one frame that was not in the listed size...Could be luck, I dunno. He did say he had heaps of frames though.
