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)

Bike Wheel Help Needed

So I averted an accident yesterday, but my bike wasn't so lucky as it took a hit on its rear wheel resulting in it being bent beyond repair. I'm only looking for the rear wheel if I can find it but I'm not the most experienced with wheels. Does any one know what I should be looking for? I have a 54' Redline 925 the specs on the wheel are 700c (which I believe to be the size) and 622x 14 (not sure what that's for). The spacing is 120mm-125mm est. Is that all I need to know or is there anything else I should be looking for?
I'd like to look for something myself before I take it to a bike shop since their stuff is on the expensive side.
Thanks in advance

That redline has 120mm rear spacing, so any standard 700c track spaced wheel will work for you.

What wheel did you lose? any pics of it of you dont know?

It is a Jalco and its also a fixed/single speed wheel as well. So if I'm looking for a wheel all I need to know is the spacing (120) and size (700c)? I appreciate your response. Here are two pics

Do you want new or used? Just noticed you were in my area, our craigslist is filled with back fixed gear wheels.

I don't have any preference over new or used as long as they're in good condition. I've checked on there but the search only gives me two sets.

well, I'd take a look here: http://www.velomine.com/index.php?ma...x&cPath=87_172 for great priced wheelsets.

They have as cheap as 100 bucks for both front and rear, to much higher than that.

Cool dude I appreciate your feedback. So if I buy the wheel all I need to do is remove both gears and place them on the new one correct?

exactly. If you don't have the proper tools, a shop can do it for you, should be cheap, maybe free if you smile a lot.

Hey dude you've become my go to guy for the day lol. I actually found these specialized wheels on craigslist and wanted to see if you think the price is legit or if the tires themselves are good. Thanks again

It's a solid wheelset.They are Alex AT400's laced to Joytech hubs. Those are a standard wheelsets for lots of stock bikes. '05 Pista comes to mind, a couple models of langsters, etc. They have sealed hubs. They retail something like $170.

The AT400s are decent but for only a little bit more money, I'd get a wheelset from Velomine with sealed-bearing Formula hubs.

Wabi. I've been happy with mine, built really well, and very cost effective. Only $95 for the rear wheel.
