Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - First Fixie Build - Wheelsets???
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
So my first fixie has been on the road for a month, after restoring an old Ricardo frame from the junkyard. I've got some pretty standard 700c flip-flops free from a friend, very cheap ones though. Looking to upgrade to some deep-V's or more stylized wheel-sets. I have a max of $250 unfortunately. I've been looking at EighthInch Tessa and Julian V2 models. Any better deals out there???
Also will non-machined wheels still work with a front brake? Asking because Eighth-inch only orders in front & back wheel-set either machined or non-machined, so yeah...
Thanks in advance guys :)

lots of better deals out there.
the wabi set is definitely the best bang for the buck as far as performance

Brakes work semi-decent on NMSW, but the finish will get ruined rather quick.It's not the hard ano found on older mtb rims.

Bomb proof and free shiping.
Look around at the thousands of other threads asking the same thing.
