Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I order the Vittoria Rubino Pro's from them and they typically take about 5-6 business days.

Are you in Canada?

Weird delays can happen with international shipping. PBK is generally very fast in my experience, but I would guess that there are variables that are outside of their control.

How are PBK orders delivered in the US? USPS, UPS, FedEx?

I rode a set for a week several months ago. Seemed just like the PR2's to me really. I also managed to flat twice on them.

Mine came via the US Mail also. From what I could make of it they are shipped to the US via Royal or somebody like that and then dumped into the US Mail. Still amazes me how fast they can get it to your doorstep.

no im in the states, (NH).
i also received the "order has been shipped" email, im just suprised because everyone seems to praise them for their shipping/service. I am a little frustrated that they have not returned my email either.

Does anyone have any information on the pro 3 race's improvements? I'm using the pro 2 race right now and they're doing great, and I wonder if the extra $ is really worth it for the 3s.

My last couple of orders through PBK have taken a few days to get to the "order shipped" stage, but once they do get sent they've made it to me very quickly - last order was postmarked around midday on a Thursday in the UK and was in my PO Box (in Australia) ready for me first thing the following Tuesday morning - not bad I say
