Very light bike to pickup though. I offered them $150 factoring in the repair costs but they said no .Bargain for someone ?


... And that's probably what it was worth brand new...

Someone will do very well for themselves when that sells.











And that someone is cash converters.....

any torpedo7 codes? The prices for the so called boxing day sales are their regular low prices, not the usual boxing day madness I'm seeing elsewhere. Wouldn't mind a '10% extra off' or 'free shipping'...

Fluid trainer at Anaconda $99 (marked down from $250). I bought one and spend two hours on it today , its pretty similar to road riding with no traffic has adjustable settings the hardest setting is like riding up a long moderate hill. A stereo will cut the noise out.

There's a fair bit more stock at cheaper prices on the skins website. Look for their Skins Sale Rack

CRC's retail prices are heaps higher than Skins too for some reason

The OP was in relation to the A100 gear. Short sleeve tops for $13 and tights for $17. Don't come much cheaper than that.

Cycling Express have Easton EC90 SL stems for $79. Super light and full carbon for a crazy price! Looks like it might just be last years colouring...

I second this. If you're not buying from the 'amazing January sale' everything is just full price. A code would be great.

I saw Anaconda having a 40% off the Knog range. I think they had the 4 LED at 40 bucks and the Boomers at 50, which will be 24 and 30 respectively after discount.

Can't find it on the website though. Saw it at South Wharf Melbourne.
