PBK has Campy training wheels

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

PBK has Campy training wheels

FYI, PBK has the Fulcrum Racing 5 Evolution wheelset in stock but there's somehow no extra shipping charge (normally >$40 usd) so it comes out to $211 to your door with 5% off code USARBR (CANRBR for our northern friends)

Also, Veloce cassettes are in stock for $35 with the code. Holy training wheels, batman.

I wouldn't call a 20/24 wheelset "training" wheels, but sure.

lol, you have to jump on that right away!

A perk about living on the East Coast.... I set PBK so that I get emails when they finally get stock... check mail at 6:45 am when the west coast is sleeping and I send my order before most people are already up.

I just stocked up on some Centaur and Chorus cassettes before they were sold out....should be coming sometime this week!

the veloce cassettes are 2009, so they're on a menu separate from the others (still in stock)

Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered a set. Now for the dumb questions: Would these wheels come with skewers? If not, does it matter what kind of skewers I use?

They should come with skewers. All Campy/Fulcrum wheels do. If not, just stick what you have now in them.
