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)

24" Rear Wheel

Anyone know where I can find a 24" inch fixed gear rear wheel? I've grown fond of a 10 speed I've had for way too long and can't bear to part with it. It would make a cool beater for crusing with my kids. Just wondering if a complete wheel exists out there.

10 speed fixed? that doesn't make any sense.

Oh come on, man...you know what the dude means. He's obviously looking to convert his old ten-speed to fixed-gear.

OP - I have never seen a 24" fixed wheel. You may have to buy a hub and have one built...

Haha. Yeah I don't think anyone makes an off the shelf 24" wheel - and by the way there are multiple "24"'s. You might want to specifiy exactly which one.
