this on looks like a good deal (Giant Defy Advanced 1 - 2011 for $1800)

http://www.bikeexchange.com.au/bicycles ... /102155107

but they don't post due to warranty issue, doh!!!

cant find any price close to this from bike stores in Melbourne on bike exchange.

Lygon cycles has advertised exact same bike for $2400
http://www.bikeexchange.com.au/bicycles ... /102149071

$600 dearer, damn.

IMO a safe assumption is that any brand name product on AliExpress is counterfeit.

Those Zipp 404's from Ali look very suspicious with their Novatec hubs (Zipp spec their own hubs, only wheelbuilder can get Zipp rims separately as far as I know) and incorrect profile (404's have a 58mm depth)
(yes I know its a fake, just pointing out why)

Thanks for the heads up :wink:

But, does that make them not worth the money? Its the old argument, zipp mavic shimano all get there product made somewhere,china tiawan ect.My concern is once i transfer the $$ will i get the product?

BTW Have you guys seen the prices on some of the complete and frame only bikes on Ali? those pinnarello's are cheap.And there are a couple of 1 to 3 year old tt bikes for around $800.00 us. To me it looks like ebay customers as the pics look like they are taken from sellers homes ect. Im a bit confused :?

Another question in itself, The Zipps seem like fakes, which in some eyes is a bad thing, but it may also suggest you'll get a product, Why bother showing a fake product if you don't intend to sell it? Buy with caution, I'm sure there are plenty of e-bay sellers with good reputations selling for a similar price

That said, you could also get some nice alloy wheels for that price too...

PBK:

LOYALUK for £10 off. Min spend £70 (UK currency only)

PARCEL10 - 10% off

PBKLOYAL $15 off $100 until December 31st. Works for AU and you can place multiple orders of $100 each if you like. I noticed that with some items in $AU it was 20% off list price compared to £ which was only 10% off list price.

BTW: They are getting rid of the rewards points program to be replaced by special deals instead. Points finish on 30 Nov and you need at least 400 points to use them.

White Line Fever just ran a competition on BNA. It has just closed up though they are kindly offering BNA members a 10% discount on orders for four weeks (ends 20.12.2012). Use the code BNA at the checkout.

These are not mine, I dont know the seller, I just came across them and thought 'great deal'. If someone is looking for some rollers, and is prepared to travel to Forestville to get them:

The side-boxings are a nice touch.
