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)

Origin8 Track Attak Wheelset?

I have been hunting for a b43 type wheelset for a few weeks now and recently came across this set. I attempted using the search function, but with the changes to the site wasn't getting any helpful results what with the bugs still being worked out. I've been trying to wade through some of the posts, but haven't seen any mention of these as of yet. I was curious as to your guys' opinion or personal experience on these and if you had any good information on them. I like the radial lacing option for the front wheel and dig some of the color combinations. It also appears from the supplied photos the surface of the wheel may not work so well with a brake. Let's hear what you guys think.

Here's the link

well, they're basically just weinmann dp18s with soma hubs...
so in terms of quality, they will be alright.

The DP18's are comparable to Velocity's deep v's. These have 41.8mm sidewalls and are similar to the eighth-inch julians/velocity b43's/H+ Son (quality being the question here). I'm assuming they are fairly new as they aren't even listed on the manufacturer's site as of yet.
