    Opinions on wheels for a classic NJS bike

    I'm looking for wheels that aren't deep profile wheels, more like open pro type wheels. I was wondering if there's any place online that I can order a pre-built set of Open Pros with a fixed/fixed hub, or something of a similar style. Price isn't an issue below 500 I suppose?

    Thanks.

    i got a wheelset from Velomine that is Dura Ace hubs to Open Pro rims for my NJS build. They look good and perform very well. Velomine did a good job of building them, too. Paid like 370 shipped or something http://www.velomine.com/index.php?ma...qbd5dq9rajaoj0

    I dig the look of araya golds and reds, lace them to Dura ace hubs or Superbe hubs or whatever to match your cranx

    Rims not to get for a CLASSIC njs build:
    -Deep Vs
    -HplusSon
    -Anything with a deep v profile.

    I highly advise against getting actual NJS rims as tubulars are a big PITA. Unless this is just your dream build that won't be ridden for commuting ever.

    all look good, but some (open pros) are built better than others.

    Thanks for all the replies guys. It's not mine, it's my buddies. He recently purchased an Uno with a bunch of parts from njs-keirin.blogspot.com, only to have it stolen. In a fit of rage he bought a newer Vivalo and a sweet parts package to basically make it a complete build, other than the wheels. The only ones on the site that were clinchers were really deep profile Dreamworks wheels. He wanted more of a classic look for the bike, I think he went with one of those Open Pro wheelsets, thanks for the awesome deals guys.
