Anybody order from Velomine before?

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

Now that retrogression's website is down until mid February I was wondering if anyone has ordered from them (wheels) and what was your experience? Good? Bad? Also what other websites do you suggest?

I ordered my first wheelset from them back around 2010. I had a good experience. Received them pretty quickly, well packaged

I bought a closeout 2017 Colnago C-RS from them. It arrived quickly, in the box, in perfect condition. $1299 for a 105 bike with a frame that goes for $1700 was a good deal. Of course I stripped it down to the bare frame, sold off the entire build kit and rebuilt it with Campy Chorus and all other parts, higher level.

Ordered wheels from them. Well built, good value, still going strong over 8 years later. Can't go wrong with VeloMine.
