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)

130 bux seems like a good deal for weinmann's tho

oh but like gobby said, a step down from velocitys. they arn't bad though for a commuter/street track build.

If that's your budget, the Weinmann or rebranded Eighthinch version is a tough value to beat.

Higher quality rims at very comparable price. Unless you are picky about colors I would advise getting these instead.
