    Tektro distributors or resellers in the Antipodes...

    Anyone managed to order any of the budget priced Tektro components from any where Down under? Specifically I'm trying to get some longer reach (47->57mm) dual pivot brake calipers. Shimanos BR-R600's are probably price overkill for the bike I'm wanting to put them on.

    Plenty of the US posts seems rife with how easy Tektro are to get stateside - but my LBS said they weren't able to find an Aussie distributor.

    Failing that - any online stores that ship to Australia that's likely to carry them?

    hey again,
    i'd try shifterbikes (www.shifterbikes.com, or thereabouts) in melburn. i was after some new brake levers and dan there said he had tektros. 45 bucks a set. i think they do some cross bike work, so might be possible for you.

    Why bother? For a few bucks more you can get MUCH better brakes. I run tektro's on my training bike, and while they function they certainly ain't no Ultegra or Dura-DisgrAce.

    I say again....

    Shimanos longer reach BR-R600's are probably price overkill for the bike I'm wanting to put them on. It is just a hack machine, albeit with a few newer parts.
