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)

Those are road wheels, not track wheels.

People seem to like them for the price, though. It's your standard low end road wheel, not too aero, not too light, not too special.

Click on Carla Gialma in my sig if you want to see some Vento road wheels in action. I like them, they've suited my fine for the past year or so. Box section, not overbuilt as much as some low spoke count wheels' rims tend to be.

I run one on the front of my Rossin. It's cheap, strong, and looks kinda funky.
