Cell electric bikes at Aldo have been discounted from $999 to $799 at Aldi stores. Found in all Gold Coast stores but presumed also discounted at other areas too. Credit to Rolts for the original post.
Stores I checked had lots of stock of both step-through and standard frames. After checking out reviews, this seems like a good bike compared to cheap import units. It comes with a 60 day refund policy (anyone who purchased at $999 could probably claim the difference) and 2 year warranty.
I'm just unboxing but it seems fairly good quality. 40nm of torque is decent for hills, but not in $3000 bike territory with midgdrive. Reviewed well here:
Aldi managers can't negotiate any more, and prices are controlled by head office, but may be a good deal if you were on the fence
