    I need a new wheel

    My stupid bianchi san jose has 130mm drop outs but a 120mm hub spaced out to fit. The way this is setup its about impossible to get the cog off without taking apart the hub. This is way too much a pain in the ass so I figure I might aswell upgrade from the stock cheap alex rims.

    I really dont know much about wheels so forgive me if the following sounds ********.

    I dont really see many hub options out there for a 130 single speed so I will probably just got with the surly 130 free/fix. What other options would you recommend?

    Where I am conflicted is on rim options. Is open pro / dt swiss really the standard for clincher rims? Seems a little heavy and boring.

    Is it worth it to go tubular instead?

    there are so many options depending on your budget... are you planning to build them yourself?

    I would probably get some hi-flange pauls myself... so pretty.

    No I am not building these myself. One day I will teach myself but right now i get frustrated to easily.

    A lot of the hubs on that link are either 135 or have no size listed so I am not sure what I can use.

    The pauls i mentioned are available in 130. you could also fit 135s in your frame with no problem given that it's steel so don't let that be a limiting factor.
