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)

Should I?

Should I buy this wheel?

Maybe Aerospoke is cooler?

Those wheels are notorious for their catastrophic failures,
which is why they're no longer manufactured.

I thought it was UCI regulations and the cost of manufacture/ weight.

out of all the aerospoke looking wheels, those ones look like they were taken off of professor x's wheel chair. that's why they're cooler than the rest

so the more money you want to waste the cooler you will be
