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)

130mm budget wheelset or convert formulas?

I'm looking for a fixed wheelset for my road conversion. The rear dropout spacing is 130mm though so are there any good budget wheelsets out there? Can I convert a formula wheelset to 130mm? I would then have to redish, eh?

130mm with horizontal dropouts? that's somewhat rare

if you get the formulas from IRO then the axle will be long enough to space out to 130mm. space it out symmetricaly (5mm per side) and you won't need to redish.
i think you can buy the wheels pre-respaced directly from Tony.
