All big rides are not created equal, and so there’s no one size fits all approach to staying fuelled and hydrated when you’re out on a ride. You need to consider how long you’ll be out, the type of riding ...
Orders placed before 11am (Melbourne time - AEST/AEDT) on a business day are shipped from our Melbourne warehouse same-day. If you order over the weekend, or after 11am, then it will be shipped the next business day.
No, as our shipping providers do not work on public holidays. This means we do not ship parcels on National or VIC public holidays (an updated list available here)
Dates where we are not open and not dispatching include:
Any item that you can add to cart is actually in stock. We only list items for sale that are actually available, so your order wil definitely be shipped on time.
Orders over $99:
All orders over $99 ship free across Australia (excludes some bulky items - a quote will be shown at checkout for these). If you choose the Free "Road Freight" method, we will select a suitable shipping service (e.g. Australia Post, courier).
Orders under $99:
Cost to ship these orders depends on your location and what items you have selected - you can get a quote for an individual item on each page, or at the cart for your whole order. You can choose from a range of delivery providers.
Authority to leave means that your package will not require a signature upon delivery. This is great for people which are often at work when the postman/courier arrives, as they don't need to be home for delivery. Please note, if you select "Authority to Leave" Mountain Bikes Direct will not be held responsible for any parcels which are lost/stolen/mauled by your canine. We do not recommend selecting if you live in a gated complex, or unit block. CHOOSE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Sure! We offer Express deliveries across Australia using Australia Post eParcel Express. Prices are based on the items you are ordering, and your destination, so to get a quote simply add all your desired items to your cart and proceed to the checkout. Enter your state and postcode to get an exact shipping cost. If no Express quotes are shown, this could be because you are trying to purchase a bulky item which we can't ship express, but if you're unsure please contact us.
Shipping Express eParcel means that we will ship your order out same-day (or next day, if after our shipping cut off). Your parcel should be received next-day as long as you are in the National Next-Day Network.
While unfortunately Australia Post does not guarantee next day delivery for any parcels sent on a business account like ours, we appreciate that it's frustrating to order Express and not have it delivered on time. So if you are in the next day network, and your parcel does not arrive (or show an attempted delivery on the tracking) by close of business the next business day after your order is dispatched, we will issue a store credit to the value of any additional amount paid for Express Shipping (the gap between what you paid for Express and what would have been charged for Regular post on that order).
Delivery times depend on where you live and the shipping method you select. To see an estimate on how long a package will take to arrive, please go to the website for the relevant freight provider (see below) and enter Derrimut, 3030 as the origin postcode.
If after the estimated time it has not arrived, or you are concerned about it's progress, we suggest that you contact the freight provider first. They are best placed to track your parcel down and get it to you as soon as possible. However if you don't have any luck with them, then you can contact us and we'll try and get it sorted out.
Unfortunately no, we are not able to offer a collection service at our Melbourne warehouse.
We ship to a large range of countries around the world! To see if your country is currently serviced, please add an item to your cart and go to the checkout and select your country.
Please note that we cannot ship certain items internationally:
International freight charges are displayed at the checkout.
Please note that you may be required to pay import taxes and duties on your order, depending on the laws and regulations in your country, so you'll need to enquire of your own Customs authorities about this. Also note that we are legally required to accurately describe the value and contents of the parcels we send internationally, so we cannot and will not falsify the details on these forms (e.g. claim a lower value or marking the item as a gift). So please don't ask us to do this!
