they only list one retailer on their site:

BRICKLANE BIKES, LONDON. UK
Address: 118 BENTHAL GREEN RD, LONDON
Phone: 207 0339 053
Email: [email protected]
Web: www.blbbigmama.co.uk

or you can get them built in the US by someone like wheelbuilder.com which will be cheaper if you buy them from australia. pretty poor given they are an australian company...

DT Swiss R520 rims are pretty much the same (same dimensions, but I assume they are made in a different factory) and quite possibly cheaper. Pull the stickers off and nobody would be any the wiser. I think they only go up to 32h though, but that might have just been starbike.com. RR585 are a little better made, but as tiny bit heavier and little more expensive.

I can never understand why velocity wheels, originating in Australia, are always cheaper everywhere else in the world except here.

BTW I have a set and they are great wheels.

cheers
