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)

Same wheelset?

What's the difference between these two? Besides $5. I'm tired but the only difference i'm seeing is that one show's the weight and the other doesn't.

The silver-spoked set has 1.8 DT Swiss Champion spokes, the black-spoked set has 2.0 no-name spokes. I'm ordering the black one more-than-likely sometime this week...
