    Maestro are usually the cheapest you will find anywhere, although they are based in the UK, they deal with overseas clients on a regular clients.I've bought 2 colnagos from them and the service has been superb.Speak to Mike, he's a legend.Think their website is www.maestro-uk.com

    I'm not sure about the tax etc.Best bet is to check the customs info for OZ or send Mike at Maestro an email, I'm sure he'll have an idea.

    BLOODY HELL :eek:

    Can "punters" buy these frames, or do you have to be a retailer?

    Back in the old days, De Grandis in Geelong (spelling?) used to always have the best prices on the Euorpean stuff, but I don't know if they still do Colnago

    Yeah, I think so. I got the link off cyclingnews, and the add said "Aussie cyclists, ever dreamed of owning one?"

    Is it perpetual, or does it only pop up for one month a year, or so?

    It's there all the time, but they cycle through different ads, so you may need to keep refreshing.
