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

Thats alright. The discount code doesn't apply to groupsets anyway :lol:

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

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!


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.

He said they'd bought about 300 frames from Avanti's old warranty stock. They were just starting to sort through them on Monday last week.

contacted them about the one I was interested in and thankfully, none in my size. I used the bikeexchange email thing and they got back to me within a couple of hours

Vulpine are a high-end brand of cyclewear, and rather than a special deal, it is premium with a premium price, so for curiosity, check out Vulpine

Evans have Castelli Gabba Rain short sleeved jerseys for $131.23. Presumably they will be the new model as they won't be in stock for a week.

Wow! That is an outstanding price. I paid $230 for my long sleeved Gabbas. You do need to factor in the cost of matching nanoflex arm warmers. I prefer the long sleeve version.

Just checked, they have the long sleeved version for $161.86

Planet X have some clearance jackets for as low as 17 pounds. I used one today for the first time in 1 degrees at 30-35kmh, found it was quite good - it does breathe though, which will be good for spring. Still, hard to go wrong at 25 bucks.

They've been offering these since about the Giro, but they change the codes every so often.

I was in the store last week for a coffee but the sale wasn't on then. In any case, I have three Fizik Antares saddles and don't need anymore. It looks like they will sell out tomorrow so you better be quick.

Wow. Went there first thing this morning (~7:45am) and grabbed a MTB saddle.
Returned around 12:30pm and mostly gone.
I heard they should be getting some more stock in tomorrow...

If you have an American Express card, sign up for the Shopsmall Australia promotion running in August, and you'll get a $5 rebate :)
