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)

To actually answer the OP:

Track bikes don't really have mag wheels in the same sense that BMX bikes do. There are outdated aerodynamic racing wheels like Aerospoke and older Specialized trispokes, but they're still expensive due to the costly process of composites and especially the demand in used wheels.

Also, resin costs have jumped way up since the 80's. Even if you could make a 700c mag wheel out of a pure polyester (instead of a composite), it would still be very expensive.

This is why no one legitimately answers threads on here anymore. Are you serious? Would you rather have incorrect or bs answers to questions?

So, you start by making an incredibly offensive statement, then tack on "no offense"?

Classy.

blickblocks, someone owes you an apology, thanks for providing an informative post.

Methinks somebody has some issues. Perhaps it is difficult for you to read those entire two [ZOMG!] sentences. I don't know where you're from, but 1) two sentences isn't much, 2)it was actually answering the question (novel huh?), 3) you are a *******.

Well, only a total friggin' ******bag would seek advice about putting mag wheels on a fixed gear, (since they offer ZERO performance advantage, can't be trued, and haven't even been trendy for over a year), and then compound that ******baggery with an insulting post to the only person who bothered to provide useful advice.

No offense B:H, but you're the reason we have this thread - Jackass BFSSFG poseur tarck bicyclist of the day
