why is QLD Giant retailers cheaper than other states?

Postby MadCow » Mon Jan 21, 2013 12:50 pm

Hi,

I am shopping for a Giant bike (defy advanced range) and from looking at bikeexchange, the cheaper prices exists in QLD. Anyone else have the same experience with this, and LBS recommendation in Sydney? and will they price match?

Cheers, MadCow

I'm in Qld and I'd still like to know the same thing. Especially, when will be the best time to grab a Defy Advanced 1 or 2 over within the next 6 months or so :)

Ahh, they are not cheap up here , at all. So much so I have not gone ahead with a purchase yet. :wink:

I saw much cheaper prices online, in Brissy, Melbourne and over in WA.

Is "up here" Sydney? I've seen the 2013 Defy Advanced 1 for $2399 in Brissie so far. Am I likely to do better than that in the next 6 months?

I should have said NSW is pretty expensive compared to other states. hoping for a factory backed sale in Feb to grab a decent deal, otherwise going to get euro brands instead from place lik

Giant do model change over in september, so that is best time to buy.
Due to slowest time of year for bike retailers being winter, particularly in cooler climates, its a good time to negotiate on prices.

Sydney dealers definitely don't seem in the mood to discount Giant (was hoping to see a TDU promotion).

I'm guessing the likelihood of discounting increases, as the model year wears on...
