Shimano Dura Ace 7900 C24-CL wheelset.

Also at Wiggle 'Cycling30' usually works for $25-30 off.

Hmm, tempting. Must be in preparation of the new 2013 model coming in.

What's everyone experience when buying these big ticket items from oversea, do you find the final price significantly different after accounting for exchnage rate difference and credit card fees?

Get a 28 degrees MasterCard. Has no international exchange rate fees or annual fees.
Its even more cheaper if you set the price to pounds first instead of $AUS as the exchange rate on the card is better than the website.
That is what I have found on Wiggle anyway. Add in your coupon/voucher code and there is no way Australian retail would be cheaper. Not too mention free delivery too.
You just have to wait for the package to arrive.

I'm 184cm and have a Large Azzurri Forza Di2, and it is definitely not too small.

Anyone know if the battery is encased in a rubber boot or one of the basic plastic wrap jobs that fails if they get wet?
