Velomine...........internet bike store, any good???

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

They have Open pros with ultegra hubs for 275.00. I just asked the seller if they handbuild the wheel sets. Does anyone here have any feedback they can give me?

What's up with all the new threads about random online parts/accessories stores? I thought there was a separate section devoted to questions about retailers.

I just got a groupset, some bars, and a saddle from them. Great service and great prices.

I ended up changing my mind on which frame to build up and need my clamp on derailer exchanged for a braze on. They exchanged it for me for free with out any hassle.

They are the cheapest place to get campy stuff in the usa. Their prices are as good or better than the big uk online shops.

Excellent to do business with. Bought a tacx trainer from them, had to replace a part after a few months. No problems got the replacement part in a couple of days with a return tag for the bad part. Great service.

I bought a Campy groupset from them in March. Their customer service was very good and everything shipped promptly.

I recently bought a set of NOS Campy shifters from them.
No problems at all.
