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)

200$ What Wheelset Do I Buy?

Being given a Motobecane Phantom Cross, only catch is no wheels. I'm planning on using it on the street and to go very fast. I've only ridden MTB's so I have no idea about road wheels/tires.

I'm 6'4 240lb's, so i need a good wheel.

You can even do it specific to the specific subforum (SSFG in this case) AND you can search titles only, by poster, and tons of other cool things!

This specific topic has probably been covered hundreds of times, half a dozen or so in the past week.

Maybe something like this. You might want 36 spokes though due to weight.

Seriously dude, there have been at least three threads asking this same question this past week and they all end up saying the same things.

Here's one:
