My gripe is with Bike24.com
Refer to images below;
note amazing price for the tricon 1450*
*note delivery date unknown
*you guessed it available in campy although with a premium of 126 euro
My temptations did succumb hence the request for more information on my part followed by their response.
Am I over reacting?
They answered your question about wheel availability with a "we dont know" which is pretty believable. The title says wheelset so thats both front and rear. Maybe I havent understood your issue.
My experience from local LBS's actually keep me away from them. Generally bad knowledge on high end products and lets not speak about the prices.
and fair enough maybe I am over reacting, but let me ask you if you physically went to visit a local retailer with the interests of buying a product listed in their catalogue which you received that morning only to be told sorry no stock we don't know when it will be restocked however we have this slightly different version for and extra $150?
I have been in retail and its a classic marketing ploy which gives me the shits..

Give me a break. The web page says "delivery date unknown", and they provided what appears to be a very reasonable reply to your email.
Would you believe it, the old delivery date unknown on the Shimano option, leaving only a higher priced Campy option on the wheelset at a good price from an internet bike shop trick? 2nd time you've fallen for it this week. They're secretly operated by Kaos.
I've gotten a lot of sweet deals through the internet and saved thousands over buying locally, so the occasional disappointment doesn't faze me. There's only one LBS I buy from in this city and that's because the owner there is an awesome guy who prices really fairly. Everywhere else you get a bucketload of attitude and the privilege of paying double for that.

Nothin to see here guys. Time to move on.

I suppose from the responses you guys have given it seems to be a fairly common and tolerated occurnce
No, its just that most people don't throw a tantrum and act like a douche when something doesn't go their way.
They were for sale at this price, sold out, and you were too slow. End of story.
