  1. I have seen a good price on a bike I have been after for a while now at Pushy Galore at Umina Beach
    in NSW. As I live in Newcastle and the saving is quite considerable (over $150!! on a bike that
    retails at $699) it is worth my while to drive down and pick it up. Has anyone had any experiences
    with this shop they would like to share? I have never dealt with them before so "forearmed is
    forewarned" as they say. It is a shame that none of my local bike shops will even consider dropping
    their price on the bike (they will not even drop to even close) as I would prefer to buy local but
    $150 is a fair amount of money.

    Cheers,

    Dave.

    Speak only to Dan. There is a young guy in there that is a smart arse and thinks he knows
    everything. When something goes wrong his immediate reaction is that its your fault somehow until
    you can convince him its not due to reason.

    Dan is the owner I believe and is much more obliging. He will immediately do anything for you and
    will look after you after sale. He would do well to get rid of that other guy as it is hurting
    business. I personally would not buy a bike there just because of this other unfriendly smart arse
    but I have had mates buy bikes from there with no problems.

    Cheers Pete

    I have dealt with these guys before but not purchased from them and can attest to the fact that they
    are very switched on and will ensure that you are getting the most up to date product at an
    extremely competitive price. Make the trip get the bike set up properly for you and met the guys (
    Dan especially )

    Hi,

    I bought one of the few remaining Specialised Hardrocks from Pushy Galore last week at that price
    $555. They do (maybe still ?) have a deal for $692 which includes a helmet,pump,bike bag. Talk to
    Dan (owner) or Adam both keen bikers,as for the bike I am rapt.I had a Specialised Hardrock 93 model
    so I guess I am brand biased. Going back in a couple of weeks to have the first free service. cheers

    Once again... Only Dan. The other guy is a dickhead and I have dealt with him more than once. The
    rest are just kids on the weekend. Competition in this business is too strong to have to deal with
    arrogant dickheads.
