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?

Wheels?

So I stripped my ****ty quando hub this week and need to buy a new fixed wheel. I was going uphill and completely shredded the cog threads. Any recommendations? I'm looking for something affordable, but decent, I'm on a budget but don't want to worry about something like this happening again. Flip flop would be nice, but not necessary, since I'll probably never use the freewheel side anyway...

I'm running a IRO (formula) fixed fixed hub. I payed $40 for it. I don't know how much alternatives cost, or even if I got a good price or ripped off... just sayin.

I ended up going with a Surly flip-flop hub and mavic rims, just in case anyone cares. A little more than I wanted to spend, but it looks sweet... Now to try it out!
