    Fixed Gear Wheelsets

    Is the velocity deep v wheelset or the weinmann better? Im looking to upgrade to a better and lighter wheelset.

    I would say Velocity, but I've heard their quality control has been a bit lacking lately. Probably still Velocity though. Weinmanns are stupid heavy.

    Don't know what the Weinman's weight, but DeepVs aren't light. They build a bullet proof wheel but they're not the rim to go to for light, not even light, street use.

    As for quality, if you're buying a wheelset complete, make sure you have a wheel builder to retension it before use and to retrue it if needed down the track a bit. If the hub's good, that's all you really need to worry about.
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it
