I'm looking to upgrade the wheels on my single speed bike. I've seen the set from Wabi and like them. I was actually outbid on a used set last night on eBay. They went for $113
I just want to see if anyone knows of other options out there.
I really want machined sidewalls because I never run fixed gear and I run front and rear brakes. I also want sealed cartridge bearings. Since I don't run a cog, I really don't need a flip-flop. If I have to choose between weight and strength I choose strength because I'm 200lbs and I bunnyhop and wheelie over obstacles and for fun. Of course, a good balance of both is ideal. I currently have the deep dish super cool kid wheels that came with my bike. I think they look silly.
Just looking around and searching, it seems that my options are the Wabi wheels or building my own wheels which would get expensive fast. I'm not in a rush so if there is something that is out of production that I can hunt down, I don't mind doing so.
If anyone knows of some wheels that might work for me, I'd really appreciate it.
