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)

26" Aero Rim

Besides the 26" version of the Deep V, what other options are out there? Anything decent?

So you can get mtb 26" deep-v's? (Not the odd-sized "26"" ones?).
I swore I saw those on someone's bike, but I've never found them in a catalog.

Ben's was selling pairs of them on ebay for like, $30.00 a few months ago. I think they have them in their store still. And yeah, they're for MTB. Not 650's, actual 26" rims.
