Cycling in Sydney Australia
Well actually, this lot haven't moved for a while, but I'll be moving house soon and won't have room for them all *sniff*.
I think the prices are quite reasonable for the specs and condition of them, but would welcome others thoughts even if you're not in the market for another bike yourself. I'll be listing them on Gumtree or Bike Exchange in a week or so if no one here is interested in them.

I will be in Sydney tomorrow & friday I would like to look at the Mongoose can you name a time to have a look - I need to make sure it fits.
Hi Jonathon. Tomorrow sounds good for me, say early afternoon? I'll PM you my phone number and location.
Hey, I'm sorry, but I just realised I made a mistake with the frame size on the Mongoose! It's actually a medium, not a large in their sizing. I'm not sure what that equates to in actual frame measurements, but I'm 1.8m (5'10") tall and it's a good fit for me.
And the Mongoose has been sold to Jonathon! Good to meet you yesterday JT. I hope the bike gives you many years of trouble free use!
Wot no recumbent?
Well I do have some sandals on lay-by...
I'm interested in the Giant, but won't be able to confirm either way for a few days so i'll let you know before the "week or so" is up.
No probs, let me know!
Well I feel a little cramped riding it myself (was always intending to fit a longer stem), so I'd suggest it'd be a bit on the small side for you. You're welcome to take a look if you like though. I'm in Erskineville.
Hey, thanks for the call DG. Better to have found out earlier it'd be too small for you.
