so i bought a single speed from a friend of mine for 30 bucks. the parts are all generic and i think the frame is from canada or something. I already have an 18 speed road bike for my longer summer commute so this bike is not going to get thousands of miles on it. it's main use will be looking cool at the coffee shop and short distance commuting. it's been set up with an old alexrims b450 on the back because it had a flip flop hub/cog/lockring(donation from a friend.). so it is officially a "fixie".
But! i have never been satisfied with stock bikes. so naturally i'm looking to upgrade virtually everything on it, but the first on this list is the wheels. you people are the scientists, pour your suggestions upon me. and remember i'm going for hipster stereotype here.
