I am going to be rolling out a few community bike polo beater bikes this coming month. Old beater frames aren't a problem, but finding wheelsets suitable for polo is a bit more difficult.
What I am looking for:
- Fixed wheels. Our group's preference for polo.
- 700c ... or 27", but most 27" wheels I've found would require us to run suicide hubs. But I guess I could use a little JB Weld and we will be running brakes anyhow, so it really doesn't matter?
- Front machined if possible.
- Durable ... doesn't have to be lightweight OR pretty.
- Cheap. Cheap. Cheap.
Okay, I am fully aware that what I am looking for probably does not exist. So I will probably be spending a lot of time at my local bike co-op sifting through wheels to find suitable ones. But on the off chance that such a thing does exist, please point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. And if such a thing does exist, do they come with cog/lock as well?
