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)

good wheelset?

im building my first fixed gear and i need some wheels. I don't need anything special or amazing, but just a solid pair of wheels that will work well and won't cost me a ton of money. anyone have any suggestions?

im using some formula hubs with jalco rims from a fuji classic track, they seem to be holding up well, and cheap to get hold of, id suggest formula for cheapness and good durability, or you could try modifying an old wheel, by swapping out the hub

Weinmann DP18s to Formulas are nice and "cheap".

Sun M13s are reasonably priced as well from Velomine.

Eight Inch Amelias have good rep for the price. $100 shipped for a out of the box rideable wheelset.
