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)

New Wheel set

thinking about buying a new wheel set. Having trouble finding a site that will let me build up what I want. Velomine has them but they are machined. Didnt see on their website where i could build a set up at.

any suggestions on sites?

also open to suggestions on wheels, was looking at the Miche Primato Pistas, F30 or Mavics..

B43s I have now I painted and they are starting to chip. Plus I want to upgrade to phil wod hubs for street cred.


gracias

Just call any of those places and they'll be glad to work something up for you. Im a big guy, and relatively new to cycling, and have ruined or damaged every set of stock wheels I've purchased. I've had three sets of custom wheels made and its pretty cool to actually talk to a competent wheel builder and learn something along the way.
