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)

Where to get Deep V's in Vancouver?

I'm trying to find a deep V front rim in red. but i am having a hard time finding them here in Vancouver BC...

where is a good site, tat will ship to Canada that sells only 1 rim? most sites i see only sell them in pair :/


oh, and also, can i use my old spokes and hub from my old wheel instead of spending 80 bucks on a new hub and spokes?


thanks

You can use the old hub as long as the spoke counts are the same. The spokes may be too long or short to reuse, depending on the size of the rim you are currently riding vs. the deep v. Why are you getting a new rim, did you taco the old one or something?

Dream has deep v's. It might be a bit pricier to get em there vs having em shipped from the internets but you could check it out anyhow.
