Relief for AU retail & LBS's in particular?

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hi everyone,

I work for an online retailer registered in AU but not in the cycling industry*

you might all be kind of interested in this.

Its about giving AU retail a level playing field.

Our friend Joe wants to reduce the tax threshold for overseas online purchases. I read somewhere that, or someone on this forum once told me that, retail here in AU employs about 40% of the AU workforce.
So there is plenty of votes for Joe & Tony in this.

What a difference a week makes...

Some times things that start out crap can end beautifully.

Last weekend my bike got nicked.... Silver Yeti SB95. I was seriously pi$$ed off. Ive had it for a couple of years and still got a thrill every time I rode it. At some point on every ride, I'd subconsciously find my self saying quietly ' I Love My Bike...' It made me feel like a much better rider than i actually am.

Local Bike Shops: Responses to common newbie queries

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

We often cop flack around here for not doing enough for the local bike shop, so I wanted to try something out and see what kind of response it would get...

The idea was to write to local bricks-and-mortar stores and let them know we wanted to produce a kind of editorial piece on advice from local stores, aimed mainly at relatively new riders, and invite the stores to have input into this. This forum has a large readership and it was explained that taking part would be an ideal opportunity for local stores to provide an insight into their expertise.

More good service

You have to love walking into the LBS (Cranks in North Sydney in this case) for a brake bleed and walking out 5 mins later with it all done despite the 3 customers/3 staff already in there when you arrive.

Thanks guys! Smiling

Yes, yes, must get an Avid kit, but the 7's I have are now about 18 months old, still perfect, never bled.

What is going on with Australian Bike Shops????

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I know parts here in Australia are somewhat more expensive then in US, but there some things that I just can’t understand. I’ve been looking for a seal kit for my Fox RP23 shock and I found it in a couple of bike shops near my work and they were charging $40 for the kit. I also found it online from Moruya Bicycles ($29 with shipping). Then I decided to look abroad and found out that this kit costs around $7.00 in US.
