Cheap / Reliable Sealed Bearing Fixed Gear Wheelset

Hi All,

As the title suggests, I am looking for a wheelset in the $100-$140 range. Preferably with a sealed hub/bearing setup. Has anyone had any experience with wheels from Velomine perhaps?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you want CHEAP either bikes direct or bikeisland has a set for about $70 shipped that has sealed bearings.

Check out velomine for more selection and quality, but will cost a bit more.

Thanks. I reached out to them - was wondering if the wheels come true and tensioned correctly.

Yes, and if you need them spaced for a particular width they will do that for you.

BWW has a bunch and click on the coupon link at the bottom of the page for discount codes. They build great wheels and have killer prices, I have some of their road tubulars. Look in their clearance section as well.
