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)

For fixed gear bikes - wheelsets?

I'm interested in what other people think are the best brands for wheels, especially with fixed gear road bikes. I've found a bunch of Vuelta wheelsets for around $100-$200. They seem good, and they're handmade, but I don't know a whole lot about different wheel brands.

If you are willing to spend $100-200 on wheels, have a look at these.

VeloMine is a wonderful site for wheelsets, also the owner, Ben is a very friendly person.
