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)

I don't think I could expect too much for $40, but you can never be to sure. I'm looking for a cheap-ish rear wheel for my bike that im swapping to fixed/SS. This seems like a cheap way to do it. thanks guys.

I don't understand why more hubs don't come fixed-fixed. It makes so much more sense.

They seem to be more and more, since fixed gear has become so popular

Get a prebuilt wheel, you're not really going to save any money relacing an old rim to a new hub. Bicyclewheels.com
