Road bike insurance

Postby luckydave » Sat Nov 03, 2012 11:24 am

Hi all, im new here and relatively new to the cycling game (Have been riding roadies for 12 months and started out with a mountain bike before that) I got into it basicly to get myself into shape (apparenly round isnt an appropriate shape the wifey says...lol) So i started out with an obrea alloy frame jobby with tiagra 10 speed for about 1500 bucks to see if i would enjoy it ( now im hooked ) So i had been saving up for my first carbon roadie upgrade looking to spend about 3 to 3500 grand that was all fine and dandy.....untill one of the local bike clubs had a raffle going for a new Sworks venge at the local crit race last weekend that i was checking out with the family. I wasnt going to buy a ticket but the wifey talked me into it as we were walking out the gate i bought a ticket . Well you could of knocked me over with a feather later that arvo when i got a call saying i had won the bike ,shoes and helmet package valued a about 10g ...talk about an upgrade...lol. So next week i take ownership of my new Sworks venge and accesories. Sooo my Question is what bike insurance companys do you use ??? Is there any to stay away from etc, any help opinions would be greatly appreciated .

Cheers luckydave.

My policy is with Cyclecover, and they seem pretty good, but it is tacked on to my home insurance.
I have not used them yet, but I am able to pick up a phone and talk to the same guy every time, which I appreciate.

Oh, and congrats on the win!

I had a look around awhile back and summarised what I found ... might help you.
