It looks to me like they are not for sale, just for rent.

what a fantastic idea. it makes perfect sense that someone would come up with this idea. i just wish i had thought of it, and of course were good enough to offer the service.

Hey I'll put myself up for rent. Although I doubt anyone will bite.
Anyone racing Cat 5 at the Prospect Park race on Sunday that wants a leadout for the sprint can have my wheel if they cover my entry fee ($21).

The following rules will apply.

$ will not be refunded under the following circumstances:

1)A crash disables either you or me.
2)The finish isn't a sprint. I'll still give you a wheel, but if a break develops that doesn't include you I can't be held responsible.

Interested parties shoot me an e-mail. I'm usually good for 32-34 mph wheel at the end of these races so if you want in let me know.

thats awsome. should start putting those ads in velonews so you can buy yourself a team for a race. Just think if you bought 20 guys out of a 40 man field....

what if you STILL didn't win? that would be the ultimate shame.

Ah, but once you got over it, it'd be a great story...

Now that I think about it, it's not too far from what TMob has been doing for several years now- buy everyone who's promising and then... still not win

my team had 15 out of 45 riders at one race, should of been a total victory. sadly one of the other teams went for the crash midpack and take out everyone tactic.
