    good price/LBS for a rear fixed wheel?

    My knees are screaming in protest as I type this but I have a beater bike that is basically a back wheel away from a return to the heady days of my fixie past......Once that frankenstein urge hits it's hard to quell.

    it's rather a p.o.s. frame so I don't need velodromisms. Just something round & true.....alloy would be luvley and I'd prefer 36 spoke & up as I am no gentle giant.

    Ideally I would love a flip flop but am I right in guessing this would add substantially to price?

    I was wondering what shops do decent fixie wheels on the cheap or if anyone has a decent old wheel they'd like to sell.

    Gracias!

    Have you considered building your own? Try Sheldon's wheel building page... it is easier than it looks. I picked up a Nashbar hub on sale for next to nothing, a rim from ebay, and spokes from the LBS- and built a much better wheel than the Suzue basics hanging from the shop ceiling- for less money.
