    If nobody else comes through, I'd be willing to help. I've never shipped wheels before though, so I'd need some guidance on the best/most cost effective practice for doing so.

    I'd figure a wheel box, and ship one there if needed. I'm working on a CL buy, will let you know. Thanks for responding.

    Any bike shop should be able to give you an empty wheel box or two DPHI.

    I may be able to help. I've shipped dozens of sets and have the box and know-how in terms of packaging, shipping and insuring. Where in Portland are these wheels? Contact me offline to discuss.

    Thanks for the responses. I've made an offer on a set of wheels, no response yet.
