Bike Barn is the Briscoes of bikes, check there. I bought a cycle which was 1799 down to 1199 ( yeah right) but BB certainly worth a look.

Nothing. I gave a new option that may fit your needs, given that Bike Barn has sales every other week.

 hey thank TDgeek, sorry i was asking the other guy what he mean by here we go now.

 

cheers ill pop in and see them. the mrs has a really nice canondale she bought in the US, one piece frame etc, but we got some stuff from torpedo and they been .... us around so i wont be buying from them.

 

i might need to up the budget for new, and if something cheaper pop up used all well and good.

 another thing that bugs me in NZ is bike servicing, Im sure not all shops are this lax. but they dont even write down what they do or what they have replaced. if you went in for a vehicle service you would expect that so i expect it from good bike mechanics they guys who have actually spent the cash investing in getting certification.

 

she has her bike serviced at what was suppose to be a good shop in Mt Eden, firstly they didnt provide and invoice stating the work done, secondly the price was more than she was quoted. i feel like writing a nocowboys review. maybe they were good once, but when she picked the bike up she asked if it had any major probs and what work was done, the guy couldnt answer the question. pretty slack.

Cheers, no worries. I know nothing about cycles, a guy at work recommended a brand, Merida.so got one. Just wanting exercise but now we moved 10km from work! Bugger. I'm working from home very shortly so I'll be doing a few morning rides around the neighborhood. In my civvy shorts!

I get that. BB promised this and that but from the one customer service experience I had, wasn't impressed. Cycles are relatively simple, I'm going to rely on friends and YouTube for servicing advice. Often these days it's only about sales

Traffic, I am in chch, and riding to town was a bit of a wake up call, looking at you buses. Since we were relocated, it was a 15 minute ride through two reserves, quiet streets, cross river twice, enjoyable

 oh that sound idyllic who would want to live in Auckland.

 

i like a road focussed hybrid shape. not into all the bike shorts and shirts etc. just like to jump on a bike and ride for as long as feels good. i remember when i first got this particular bike in Brisbane once, I took off, ended up riding 40km in 40 degree heat, ended up with heat stroke rofl. passed out and all.
