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)

Wheel question

Hello.

I see a lot of people who use H Plus Son wheels on their fixed bicycles. Is it possible for me to put a pair of the F30 on my Peugeot PH-8? I know they sell the whole wheel with spokes and a fixie hub at citygrounds.com, but I have a 10-speed and do not wish to change that. Do I then need to build my own wheel with a 10-speed hub?

Please bear with me, I'm new to this and learning as much as I can

Thanks!

F30's don't have a braking surface, so they wouldn't work on a ten speed.

But if they did, you could definitely build up a road set. F30's have the same profile as a Velocity Deep V, so you could use a machined set of those instead.

You could indeed. Whats your hub choice? Might I recommend Circus Monkey's if you haven't already chosen.

The available drillings are 24, 28, 32, and 36. Any reason for the 36h? Unless you're downhilling or are a really heavy weight rider, there really isn't a need to go higher than 32h.

Our very own Scrodzilla has them!

Yeah, they'r really nice hubs for the money. They're light, strong, spin super smooth, and are ridiculously cost effective.
