I went shopping...


Recommended Posts

After my ride Saturday morning I decided to go and get some quotes for my new MTB. I have decided to get the GT Avalanche 1.0 Disc. It's got a RRP of R6250 and saw that most shop used the number as a starting point. this is the quotes I got. The only negotiation was sking for a "cash price".


Linden:   ticket = R6250   with discount = R5620

Westdene:  ticket = R6250   with discount = R5670

Westrand:  ticket = R6750   with discount = R6250

Fritz Pienaar:  ticket = R6245   with discount = -5% if I spend it on accessories in the shop

Cycle Lab: do not stock GT or anything alse in that price range.


I must say Fitz Pienaar was the only one that let me ride the bike outside the shop although the gears was not working. But I did know more about the bike and the components then the sales person.


At the end of the day I ended up in a computer shop and got me a external hard drive for my PC.

Mampara, I know that Cajees is not everyones cup of tea, but give them a call to find out what they'll charge.


They generally undercut most if not all bike shops.

DT, for it to be worthwhile buying in Pretoria you need to save about R300-R500. But I'll give them a call anyway.
