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)

quick wheel question?

I was looking at wheelsets and decided between the

sunrims cr18 laced to 36h formula hubs,
or
velocity deep vs laced to 32h formula hubs


Any opinions?
Are the velocitys worth the extra $100?

I was also wondering which will last longer and be stronger.

I'm currently gathering parts for an upcoming FG build for the wife and I was thinking about those Sun CR18/Formulas (from VeloMine?). Then I found the Sun M13/Formulas for $120: http://www.velomine.com/store/index....roducts_id=340
M13s aren't quite as wide as CR18s, so that's what I'll most likely go with.

Velocitys would most likely be stronger, but those polished Suns look great and in my case, my wife is only 10 lbs so I don't think it'll be too much of an issue!

I really like the look of the sunrims. Good price too.

That was my initial thought but she's not into the look of deep section rims and wanted something vintage-looking.

VeloMine has pretty good prices.
