I was down in the big smoke yesterday and had a bit of time to fill in so I visited one of the well known CBD bike shops. I was aghast at the prices you mob are being charged for things. I don't know whether it goes across the whole range of things, but just a comparison for Conti Ultragatorskin tyres ('cos I'm interested in them at present) showed the following prices
Sydney cbd lbs $99-$110
Newcastle lbs $60-$80Chain Reaction Cycles
- both UK internet shops <$40
All of this for the same tyre! You're being suckered boys and girls, especially if this price disparity extends across their whole range of stocks.
