Bianchi dealers Perth

Bianchi dealers Perth

Postby Funkymonk » Sun May 20, 2007 7:50 pm

Went for a drive into Freo today to look over a new Bianchi ... the site lists Fleets as the dealer .... only Fleets have dropped them and wern't real forthcoming with the new/current dealer details .

After spending $$$$$ at Bikeforce and then getting very very poor service I wont be rushing to buy off of them .

Can anyone put me onto the dealer for the Bianchi please ...thanx in advance

Without wishing to appear sarcastic, I think you may have more chance of buying a touring bike in Perth now than a Bianchi. :shock: :D

I'll add it to my list of people looking for Trek touring bikes, touring bikes, recumbents, trikes, etc. :D

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.

Elite Racing Cycles in Northbridge are a dealer. In fact, the store is full of green stuff :wink:

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.

Moo...
