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)

Forte Titan

Ok so I'm looking for this wheel, anyone know of a site that sells it other than performance
Performance wants like 67 for the wheel plus 20$ to ship it plus a quick release will equal a little over 100$ which I'm not going to spend on a front wheel

Forte is Performance's in-house brand. Good luck.

It is the same wheel as the Neuvation http://www.neuvationcycling.com/product129.html
which on clearance for $49. Although that one has a silver hub. The hub, rim and spokes are the same, but I think nuevation and performance build them separately. I have them on my commuter and so far they have held up. I really didn't know much about low-spoke wheels or bladed spokes when I bought them. I just got them because they were cheap. Lately I've been trying to break them, so I could upgrade, but they haven't budged.

If you have a performance store near you, check if they have the wheels in stock there. Then just say you want to pay the online price, which they will honor.
