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)

Cheap 650c wheelset needed

Looking to convert my girlfriends centurion. It's teeny tiny. So is she. And light. Looking to get an appropiate (not overbuilt or $$) 650c wheelset. Local shops don't seem to carry any smaller rims/wheels, and don't seem to be in much of a bother to build something up. Anyplace online that has a cheaper set of machine/line built wheels?

you are not going to find a read track wheels in 650c for cheap unless you build one

my cheapest guess is to go with a alex da28 on either formula or iro hubs.
I would still go with the mavic open pro just because it is a trouble free wheel in the long run even though it cost a little more
