I heard they should be getting some more stock in tomorrow...



Went in today and they had a whole lot of new stock. I bought an Arione CX and an Antares. Will give them both a try and see how I go. At around 2pm they still had around 15-20 Arione CX's and a bunch of others.


Suppose you don't want to do a trip in there. lol

Swiss Side have their popular Gotthard wheels down from 529 Euro to 449 Euro (ca. $650 + shipping).
1465g (set) 27mm clinchers with Sapim spokes (brass nipples)

A lot of serious competitive cyclists in Australia are getting these, so worth checking out especially with the savings.

Bought this off Ebay:

Identical apart from some small asthetic details to the Magellan product that retails here for $149.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Mio-Cyclo-10 ... 540a771d6c

Bargain for $85 delivered. Comes in fully sealed retail packaging not OEM. Instructions are in Taiwanese but you can download the English instructions on PDF. Language on the device has a number of different options so setting to English is no problem and is done on initial setup.

You download and view the data via the Mio website, only bad part about that is that it doesn't like chrome browser only IE. Data is easily exported to strava.

Didn't need the Heart Rate or Cadence kit but they are also available.

Fully customisable display with an array of options that are mind boggling, has everything from compass to temps to elevation. Also has training options that I haven't looked at yet.

Good little unit for the dollars.

I bought exactly the same one. Very happy with it.
Bought their Cadence/speed sensors from a PC shop for <$40 too. Brand new gps and cadence sensor for < the price of a 2nd hand Edge 500, that does the same thing - bargain.
The only issue was having to find for myself that the .gpx exported from the Magellan Active website contained cadence data for Strava upload.
Which out-front mount is that - do Edge mounts take the Cyclo?

It's a SRAM mount I bought of a BNA member. You can get them at 99 bikes for $24.

All Garmin type mounts also fit the Cyclo.

Where did you get the Cadence/speed sensors from?

I guess the key word there is OVER.
If drivers and riders spent more time worrying about their responsibilities than their rights then roads would be far safer.

The have $50 on the page, then when you pay for it it's 49.99, which is under $50. Dodgy.

Yeah the zipps seem quite a bargain. Whats the deal about being non firecrest. Would they be like old stock from a few years ago? Shame they aren't clinchers or they would be already bought!

They must be selling heaps! The available crank length/chain ring options are now very limited.
