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)

There is just too many tires and rims to choose from. all of them saying that they are "super light weight and ultra durable for any condition" or the like. I want to get a new set of rims that are all black preferably, and are actually good rims. price range up to $200

Velocity Deep V is the standard. On eBay for about $260 shipped. If you don't want to spend that much check out the Weinmen DP18's. Go for about $170 shipped on eBay. Not as good quality as Velocity, but they get the job done.

weinemann DP18's are a good value. you can get them online for around 140-160. i know i've seen an all black set on ebay before, both machined and non machined.

some sells some all black wheels, but i think the price is around $220 or so, and i don't remember who the manufacturer was/is.
