So I'm thinking about playing some bike polo with a crew around here & I have the perfect frame (an old schwinn varsity) & am wondering the best place to find some craptastic wheels to throw on this bugger. I was thinking of some 20" mag wheels but they won't fit in the drops.
Anyone have suggestions/thoughts?

i would try to find someone who's upgrading/replacing their wheelset and then cover the wheels up
like a roadie or ssfg'er dropping some old 700c's
20" wheels on varsity? pedals are going to be scrapin'. Old 26 + 27" wheels are a dime a dozen if you know where to look (ie. the dump).

whats wrong with the wheels that are on it. use them until they break. i have mid 70's varsity i use for polo. it is a good bike for that but it is a ****ing tank.:thumb:

We will have some of our Julian wheels in 48 hole soon- but they are 700c
There's a set of 48h Deep V hoops for $40 on ebay. And the hubset for 48h I believe is only $100 from ben's cycle.
