    Yes, but only the SS hubs come in pre-built wheels from QBP.

    i asked IRO to make (or order) a 26" aeroheat rim laced to formula track hubs (100/120 spacing). this was about a year ago and set me back $185 for the set.

    I'm riding an IRO and it's solid, only prebuilt wheel I've ridden that wasn't crap, which is probably because it was hand built.

    On one makes a fixed hub. I think they sell built wheels as well. I'm looking for the same thing, but reluctant to pay out the nose for a wheel for my beater winter bike. I've been considering the bolt-on approach:

    Wilderness Trail Bikes is a mtb component company, but they're old school, been around since the 80s - I think their first parts were hubs and wheels. They make some oem junk, but so does every made-in-taiwan/china rebrander (cane creek, avid, ritchey, bontrager, formula (whose hubs are really popular here, but they make almost exclusively oem junk)). I've never ridden the rims, but they're probably on the scale of a rhyno lite or similiar cheaper and slightly heavier but bombproof rim.

    yeah if you can find an old cheap mtb front disc wheel somewhere and have some time to futz with it that might be the cheapest route!

    there is a guy over on mtbr making some bolt on cogs cheap!

    i have a front disc hub i got off ebay for under 10 bucks (shimano deore) that i wanna build into just such a wheel but on a 700c rim.

    well, the front disc wheel idea sounds good, but it won't be spaced 135mm, and will probably throw the chainline off from the 52mm mark, right? i thought about getting formula hubs and putting on a longer axle, but i realized that would be 10mm i'd be off. same with that idea, though i love the bolt-on cog idea.

    ieatrats, thanks for the info on wtb rims. i only knew them from small components. good to know what they are.

    i'm a little reluctant to throw down a lot right now as this'll be a beater to get through the rest of winter (right now, it feels like it'll never end), something nicer after that.

    You want a 135mm hub, and you like the bolt-on cog? Why not just go with a rear disc hub? No respacing, and no futzing with chainline (that you can't deal with via BB, anyways). Sounds like an ideal setup to me.

    all right. i've only ever heard people mention using front disc wheels for this; i just assumed there was a reason no one ever mentioned using a rear wheel.

    I just emailed Tony for a price on two "dark matters" wheelsets... one in 120mm and one in 135mm spacing.

    I didn't think to ask him either.

    If I read correctly, the "dark matters" rims are unlabeled velocity fusion rims. I hope it's true because I intended on getting them.

    I need a set for both of my "new" rigs.

    Maybe I can a deal on two wheelsets.

    disc front, fixed rear does indeed sound like the wintertime cycling jam.

    i'd really like to use deep v's at some point, as the pair i have now have served me so well...i'm in awe of how bombproof they are. but rhynolites and sun mammoth have been recommended to me, both as "clydesdale" wheels...so maybe i should look into those (at 165 pounds, i'm sure they'll serve me well).

    dimension disc hub? i'll look into it.

    it may be cheaper to go surly/rhynolite for a bit, and switch over to deep v's further down the road.

    keep in mind too that you can use 120mm hubs with longer axle and some spacers, Im pretty sure the formula hubs are almost long enough even in the 120mm size to just add spacers and put it in 135mm dropouts

    I just measured mine, Ive got about 18mm's of extra axle showing outside the track nuts, so you probably wouldnt even need a new axle with formula hubs.
