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)

wheel choice ...

im making an SS out of an old Peugeot frame. I have old 27inch steel wheels from another 10 speed build i could use. I beleive they are araya rims.

i have the choice of going to a set of older donor no name aluminum rims from a crappy DiamondBack Approach hybrid bike. Would it be worth it or should i just use the steel wheels?

If you're going to run a brake, throw the AL rim on the front.
