I'll add it to my list of people looking for Trek touring bikes, touring bikes, recumbents, trikes, etc.
Actually Bikeforce was going to be my next suggestion, but my experience with them sounds like yours. You could try ringing their South Perth store, as there is someone there that knows about bicycles.

I have found them to be excellent for advice, sales, and service. I have a Scott CR1 but have been taking it there for service and they pay 110% attention to it despite it not being bought in their store. The guys are experienced racers and generally love bikes so you get usable advice, not just sales talk.
For example, my last purchase was a pair of shoes. I wanted to buy the best I could and money was no object. I was advised to try on every pair in the store and could have been convinced to buy the $500 Sidi's. Instead, I walked out with a $250 pair of DMTs that fitted like slippers...not cycling shoes. They were the best for me and that was all Steve would sell me.
I was impressed. Hope you have some joy there. In fact, if you get there could you post your impressions as I'd be interested.

I need some new showes.
Can I have the other $250 that you didn't spend. I promise I'll send back the change.
