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)

I wouldnt just because it uses some generic hub deal. Spend just a little more and get a good hub.

Formula to Mavic CXP22. I don't remember where they are, but I'm sure someone will chime in.

Great wheels for descents. You can use them for climbs too.

The guy is redundant but he's right, check with your "L"ocal "B"ike "S"hop and see what they have first.
