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)

vuelta typhoon rims

Thinking about a wheelset with these, I am 240lbs. for a fixed gear flip flop bike.
It's for a fixed gear townie that will have a freewheel side so I can still fly downhill, I am moving to the top of a big hill!
anyone heavy with experience?

i ride vuelta typhoons but not single speed and am not 240lbs...
I'm about 142lbs / 5'9" and ride a cross bike with these wheels... Durable but I need to get them trued soon because the factory build on the rim assembly/spoke tension really needs to be better... Also I think I am going to change the spokes to colored spokes for the fun of it.
