    Australia/Sydney LBS reccomendation?

    Hello, I am asking this on behalf of my sister who is studying in Sydney.

    She is looking for an entry level mountain bike that can last a few years. Does anyone know of a good LBS that is able to advise and fit and total newbie to mountain bikes? After sales service is important as well, since I will not be there to fix or adjust stuff for her.

    I've heard of REID Cycles, are they any good?
    Edit: Looking at REID cycles, I don't see any mountain bikes at all.

    Thank you for reading.

    Try Clarence St Cyclery in the city, Brookvale Bike Factory in Brookvale or the Trek Store in Rouse Hill.
    I've been to those and they're all pretty good.
    MC + Cyclery on Clarence St is also good.

    Hi

    Depends on where abouts in Sydney your sister is located.

    I am on the Northern Beaches and can not fault the team from Bicyclesonline.com.au. They could not do enough to help and they also range some great value for money Polygon bikes.

    Cheers

    Nathan

    Ah, she is in Burwood NSW. I forgot that Australia is huge, lol. She has a car so distance shouldn't be a huge problem though.

    Thank you for all your replies.

    Also try CBD on Kent St, (Cannondale, Yeti, Salsa, GT, Merida, etc) really helpful/knowledgeable staff and a good selection of bikes of differing brands, not just Trek or Giant etc. Keep an eye on servicing costs on some of the city based stores as well, as they can be rather enthusiastic when it comes to bill time.

    Atelier de Velo (Pivot, Bianchi, Focus) on Clarence St is also pretty good.
