    wheel set

    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

    Thanks!

    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.

    I'm still wondering if they can be used for fixed gear/skids??

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