Prestige cycles, perth, West Aust.

the prestige cost me two bucks from the local Tip Shop. Some air, lube and new old tyres and this beastie has taken me places that Land Cruiser in the background could neva get to. And for the eagle-eyed amongst you, yes, I have had to replace the original derailleur with a newer, cheap unit.
Curse those derailleur-eating sticks ! : )

If I had that bike in Perth, I'd ride it over to Little Creatures for a pint and some grub.

You got a superb deal. You probably need some reflectors though. Smile

Sure, Andrew, if I was in Perth with the Prestige I'd slap on the reflectors and some bright, bright lights and join you at Little Creatures. But mostly the bike and me are on the beach or away somewhere in the bush, so not so much of a need for reflectors there. Wink

There are a few Tip Shops in Perth, there's a good one in Balcatta, but I live on the South Coast, so I don't know the Perth scene that well.
