I have nothing to do with them btw


I ordered some parts on Jan 13th from BB after ringing to check they were actually in stock (was told they were) but order was not dispatched until 10 days later (23rd Jan) and then only received yesterday 30th Jan. Don't think I'll bother using them again.

Completely opposite for me ordered Tuesday delivered Wednesday. This is the 4th order I have placed with them & all have been delivered next day.

Where did you see this?

On their website it still states:
FREE DELIVERY to Australia on orders over AUD$100, excludes Bicycles



Just put in my first order with CE (a $5 bell, ding ding!) and the free delivery did apply once you key in the address.

Now just the small matter of actually gettin the good...


Cool, thanks for the update.

Cheaper than usual but not necessarily 'cheap'.... Assoss AUST are closing down.
Sale on pretty much everything. Best base layer I have ever owned....

damn that is an awesome price 1

I was considering the flite 500 if I could get it for $699 on sale but that is an awesome deal. Wonder if it would be worthwhile selling the pack and end up with a sub-$1000 carbon/105 bike

Increasingly often I am finding local prices equal or better than on offshore. After many years of only buying offshore, most of my purchases lately have been local

I called into the Assos shop in Melbourne today. The prices in the shop or on www.Assos.com.au were great. IJ Bonka 6 jacket for $349, Ribble at $402 and Wiggle at $390. Also the SS Millie jersey for $140, cheaper again also

Bikebug has conti gp 4,000 for $36.35 on their Facebook page. Also Garmin 510 combo for $359 v Wiggle at $374.

Worth checking local prices before you buy offshore

Some nice prices there. The Garmin 810 bundle is $499 (unit only $349) which is $150 off...

Yep, Bike Bug had some of the Shimano shoes cheapest in the world, and very well stocked when I first looked (less sizes now I see). My shoes showed as in stock but took 1 week to arrive, but I liked being able to try them on in store before fully committing to a size I hadn't tried on, so all around a good purchase.

Does anyone know if there is any current discount codes for Cell Bikes? "ThankYou" does't look like it works anymore.

Cheers

I didn't know there were any codes for cell bikes!

What does thank you actually do?

Not sure if this is a bargain but I just bought some GU energy gel for ~$1.25 each and there not the almost out of date ones you normally get at that price .
Everything I've ever ordered from these guys has been very fresh . Delivery usually takes 2 weeks .
http://www.vitacost.com/gu-energy-labs- ... 24-packets
Thats the link for the 24 mixed varieties but you can get whatever flavour you want . They also have the roctane for $2:50 each as well as heaps of other brands at very competitive rates .

Shipping is $10 with a 3.5lb limit , anything over that and you get raped .
If you are kind enough to use my referral link you get $10 off your order so long as it's over $30 which effectively makes the shipping free . I just added few single gels of a different brand to try to make up the $30 .
My referral code : https://www.vitacostrewards.com/gBLAWNC
I also get $10 credited to my account as well just for the record .

A pair or pearl Izumi carbon shoes $99.
The GLW is going in today!

They are on par with the Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL. Usually a $1,200 wheel - so can't really go wrong!
