I just got me a motobecane fixie from BD and I'm wondering about wheelsets.
Are all fixed gears bikes have alot of spokes? (i'm not looking for an aero, hed, spinergy type ****s)
Are they good for fixed/skidding? I know alot of singlespeeds/gears bikes have skewers, a friend of mine told me that fixed gears should not be using skewers.
Any opinions or ideas? I'm just looking for wheels with less spokes for my fixed
I like how it looks, just like ppl like aeros
I guess its just preference
Also what are these kind of wheels called?
people call them a lot of things. Aero is fine
Those wheels seem alright. The weight is pretty good, not great. Really a sidegrade, if not a small step up. Your wheels you have now are good. I would save your money and replace parts of they break.
Thanks for the opinion, appreciate it.

Again, don't they usually come with skewers? or can I convert it to bolt it on my bike?
