I'm in SYdney for the week (Kent st) and was just wondering what the best bike shops are to just visit and have a look.
City Bike Depot is on Kent street..
other city based store is Clarence Street Cyclery.
Yeah Clarence St is good to look at, its on ummm.... Clarence St 3 stories tall!
I haven't yet been to City Bike Depot I'll have to check it out.
City Bike Depot is the best shop in Central Sydney for Mountain Bike Stuff. Then Clarence St is good for road bikes (downstairs). Wooleys in Paddington is a rip-off but i quite get on with a couple of guys in the workshop. The owner is soooooo moody its not funny.
i was thinking of taking my bike to them to get them to change the springs on my cannondale lefty fork. Sounds highly recommended
i can't believe some of the prices Clarence Street charges. They were after $300 an end for '09 SLX brakes. I went to MCC and they quoted $380 for both ends.
Inflated prices was also noted on some Avid's and even smaller things like the mudguards, lights and handlebar grips.
Will have to check out City Depot tomorrow.
Training is like fighting with a gorilla. You don't stop when you're tired. You stop when the gorilla is tired.
At the new price, MCC wouldnt be able to do F+R for 380 and make money. Shimano have some stock at old pricing and some at new. At new pricing, 300 and end is closer to what you'd be looking at.
But Shitmano doesnt have stock of anything (most common items are out of stock, making it impossible to do business at the moment.
