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)

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.
