Go back 2 years and similar news would have been posted on AC, in time for members to attend the sale. AC membership is still high at 4,970 but fewer members are posting.
This is old news.
The company went bust in February, and there was no sale at any of the other locations as the liquidators emptied out the stock overnight (as is normal when shutting down a chain).
I don't know if Hyde Park is still open and selling off the remaining stock, but if it is people would be well aware to remember they won't have any of their normal repair/replace/refund rights when buying from a company in liquidation.
I indicated that old news, and disappointing that fewer timely AC posts.
A friend picked up a good frame on sale from Standish. Did not state which branch. My impression that recently, to replace a stolen bike.
The manufacturer's website indicates a limited lifetime warranty for an original owner.
i was looking up something about Super Elliott's the other day, stumbled across this http://www.slsa.sa.gov.au/archivaldocs/oh/OH101.pdf lot of info about Standish
Always difficult to see a store go under as there are jobs lost and hard for all involved.
I did however need to purchase a new chain from a lbs the other day. Checked what I needed online, noticed price online $17, suggested retail $30. Ok, I needed it quickly so would be happy to pay retail at the lbs I purchased the bike from. The store fortunately had it in stock at a bargain price of $40.
Its a competitive world - and the internet is winning.
