Get over it, you live in a shit small country, stop being the stereotypical New Zealanderish whinger, and realise that you really don't matter as a country in the grand scheme of things.

That is all

I try to do a mixture of both LBS and web buying.
I remain sceptical that the differences I see in end user price reflect the price difference to the suppliers - there seems to be massive voids at times - some of this will be "special" or "loss leader" but i would estimate that the price difference I see are about 20-30 percent regularly - is there really that much difference in cost to suppliers??

I think you'll find even bike shop employees can buy stuff from CRC, Wiggle or Starbike cheaper than they can get it for from the NZ wholesaler - and that's with a discount off wholesale.

Stay in school.


that really does beg the question as to WTF sort of profit the wholesaler is making.



Point taken.... however the stuff in the UK has alot further to travel than it does to here??

so someone making big bucks... I say we all boycott and buy online... the only problem with that is that you get such good service with LBS and as such i would prefer to pay the premium.. but its getting silly... people are buying 2years old stuff on trade me for the price new on chain reaction
