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)

I want a new wheelset

so I came here.

Give me any options, price does not matter.
Anything you have had on your bike or want on your bike.

I am not looking for any particular style, although I am a fan of Deep V's and HED3's.

Origin 8 hubs are just rebranded Formulas. They're among the very slight number of things bearing an Origin 8 logo that don't suck.

Guys! Stop taking everything so literal haha. Price doesn't matter for an opinion just because I want to hear them all. As far as buying one single wheel, I don't want to spend that much haha, that's it.

haha. srsly. stop.

You either have a max price or you do not. Don't say you don't if you do.

A better post title is something like this: "name every available wheel"
