Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

depends on if you want deep v's or not.

they're usually around $60? so i'd say, if you're happy with it, then yes.

These are the kind of questions you ask before buying things, but sounds like a good deal to me if new.

Why does it even matter if you already bought them. Plus, how hard on the internet is it to find retail prices. Hold on, let me answer this. Easy.

marqueemoon and endform beat me to it.




But they forgot to add:

"i got a velocity deep v rim (1) msch wall for $42. Good Deal?"

If we told you "no", what would you do about it?

Oh ****, bad deal. You'd better return it to the LBS you bought it from and find it on the internet for three bucks less, wait four days, and then have no return policy. Oh wait, that's exactly what you already did.
