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)

Presumably you should know what size wheel the bike was meant for: 700cc 650cc etc. If you are worried about the whole wheel you also need to know the wheel spacing for the hubs.

I'm not really sure what you're asking but don't listen to MACRI.

What bike are you riding and why are you concerned that typical 700c Deep V wheelset won't fit on it?

I know barely anything about bikes. But is the 700c standard for most fixies?

Yes 700cc is the standard for adult road bikes, which includes most fixed geared bikes.

If your asking about the new gold wheels you want to put on that bike you posted in your other thread it's a moot point because you shouldn't buy that bike in the first place but yeah, those are 700c wheels.

For crap's sake, don't buy that bike.

Though, if you're looking at old 70s CL conversions. It was originally designed for 27" tire. The new industry standard is 700c. Slightly smaller.

Click around and soak in info on Sheldon Brown's site.
