Swift Arriv Wheels - are they good?

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)

Those never seemed all that great to me. Read mediocre reviews of them int he past. $130 for one wheel on the net should be a pretty nice wheel, so doesnt seem like a good deal to me.

You could get a better equipped and similarly priced set of wheels @ ben's cycle.

ah, well for a set, I guess the price is good. I'm assuming they will roll, but not the lightest setup!
