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)

Black & White striped deep v's??

Hey - apologizing ahead of time if i'm posting in the wrong section...anyway

I was looking around on velospace and found this bike (link is below)

I've been looking around for a while but i can't find what kind of rear deep v's those are - I have some money saved up for some new wheelset but i wanna hold out if i can find these rims but i need some help.
Does anyone know where i can find these

Thanks ahead of time and appreciate the time

~Brooks

Not sure of the rim colorway (could most likely be limited), but there's plenty of custom stuff over at velospace....

Wow, that is a crazy looking wheel. Let us know if you figure it out. Sorry I can't be of any help. I'm usually not anyhow.

I'd like to know what brake lever that is

EDIT: I guess it is something from Paul.

Most of the bike seems to be P or P Wood.

that brake lever is the Paul E-lever. I have it. It sucks. Worst brake lever ever. A $10 Tektro is better.
