can you put some prices up on your site Thylo?
**** it pisses me off when sites don't give a price

Thylacine 07-12-06 09:09 PM

I think I have a can of spray-on tan and a pair of King-Gees around here somewhere :lol:

Kotter, looking at a way to put the prices in there. Problem is, there's different prices for different countries. Here's some Tephra prices for the record (getcha pens out) -

Tephra - AUD2550
Tephra SL - AUD2765
Tephra Sc - AUD2895
Tephra Ti - AUD3670
Tephra Ti SL - AUD4670
Tephra CTi - AUD4995 (hush hush)

Why do you charge differently for other countries?
Should I get patty to reroute one through the states because its cheaper? :lol:

badsac 07-12-06 09:21 PM

Exchange rates?

Why's the Ti SL a grand cheaper? Two letters are getting dear these days.

Everything is priced differently in every country. Haven't you ever bought a coffee in Japan before? :D

The Tephra Ti SL is double butted Reynolds Titanium, the Ti is Ancotech straight guage. The Reynolds tubeset costs an absolute packet. The 6-4 version is even more....as in....downtube is 250 bucks. :eek:

Shhh. That's what is special about the Ti SL. Self heating for Melbourne winters :D

Causes too many accidents. You seen what happens when you try to hug your frame at 40kph?

Sucks that SBS coverage doesn't start until 10pm. :( We have already missed the HC climb over the Tourmelet. From the cycling news live rport it looks like a few boys are doing it tuff today.

Sucks even more that we have to put up Garry Gatt and a half hour of absolute drivel before we get to any cycling. Why can't we just go straight into cycling? And while I'm on a roll, why the hell can't they show some of the stages in their entirety? :mad:
