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)

Decent wheelset?

I'm looking to replace the stock Alex R500 wheelset on my bike and came across these:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Track-Fixie-Free...ht_5880wt_1141

Has anybody ever even heard of them/have any experience with these? I'm trying to do this on the cheap, so a Craigslist find might always be an option as well.

Thanks!

shipping costs to where i live is 130+. plus, they seem to be a downgrade from your r500's - whats wrong with them that makes you want to upgrade?
