I have stumbled on to this website torpedo7. I am extremely suspicious about the prices that they are quoting. Can anyone shed some light on the reputation of this website.

thanks

Here is the explanation from www.mtbdirt.com.au

They are a sub branch of KeeWee bikes and they order in loads of OEM parts at very cheap prices under the pretense that will be fitted to the KeeWee bikes. Then they sell them online with T7. It's an immoral but not illegal thing to do as far as the wholesalers are concerned but we as end consumers get the benefit.
I've only ever heard good things about T7's service ...they seem reliable.
T7 used to have banner ads on both MTBdirt and Farkin until the Australian wholesalers put pressure on both websites to remove them.

I must also be soft,
I run 33 chain ring and a 20 fw on one side & a 17fw on the other. The 20 is great for technical climbing and tight single track

The fact that I live on top of the Great Dividing Range also has something to do with it.

But yes i find the 34/20 gearing is perfect for most places i ride and also for if/when I do any endurance type events.

Three of my mates have each made purchases from this site recently (purchases ranged from clothing to rear derailleurs) and T7 won out on price (waaay cheaper than the LBS) and service (items were delivered to Perth, WA within four days).

They will definitely buy again.
