Sold: 2009 Kona Stinky $1500

Postby kona.stinky. on Wed 13/Apr/11 9:29pm

SOLD

I am wanting $1500

Well, I've made the hard decision to sell my awesome Kona Stinky, the bike is in mint condition, just a few scratches on the bike. I have washed the bike after every ride, and it has always been kept indoors.

My reason for selling is that I like all-mountain riding more, and I am selling this bike to buy an AM bike. (open to swaps)
The bike is fully stock apart from a black E*thirteen LG1 (RRP$289)

If you have any questions, or would like photo's of a specific part, feel feel free to ask .

That shipping is quite a lot - may deter some people? You must be being epicly overcharged because I know for a fact cost price is 1/4 of your South Island price. Otherwise bike looks sharp - some groms should surely want it.

Who do you ship with? Thats the price from Top Gear cycles Taupo to get the bike packaged really well and sent to their door.
Avanti Plus Taupo wanted to charge $120 to get it boxed and sent to somewhere in the North Island or $140 to the South Island.

I will disagree, for a bike shop box and ship job, thats pretty fair, if it was just freight, I would say that its up there a bit, but not outside reality

MTBChick, I suggest that you try to ship a bike when you don't have an account with a courier company ;)

Yes, granted cost is not what you would charge a customer... ;)

That said, the bike shop I work for charges $30 for South Island freight and $40 for North Island freight to customers, which includes box and packaged by mechanics (or at least someone who knows how to!) - the brakes get brakechips, derailleur is right in towards frame, pedals off etc..

Not really going to help your cause KonaStinky but interesting to see different prices across the country! (And you get a bump!)

what you will find as well, is that freight south to north is generally cheaper than north to south, and it sounds like the shop you are working at charges very cheaply - which is awesome :thumbsup: (I presume Bike Otago??)

Interesting - I'd imagine it would have something to do with the higher costs up there?

Yep, Bike Otago, although it's not the only bike shop in Dunedin ;)

Cost me $100 to send a bike to Welly for Dunedin just last week with Fastways which seemed to be cheapest.

People should really stop inadvertently letting shop cost prices out of the bag. :lol:

aaaaaaaaaaaand some shops (like BO) won't ship bikes now for the average punter because they get the poo-poo when things go missing.

Ah well, it's the same cost as anyone else who sends wholesale through a company..

No shop should really be liable for any damages though - shouldn't it be the freight company who gets in poos?
