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)

Image Request: low/high profile wheelset

Howdy guys. Could someone post or link me to images of bikes with a low profile wheel in the front and a high profile wheel in the back. Much appreciated. Thanks.

Not what you're looking for, but it's too nice not to post.

Deep v's are just strong, they aren't deep enough to actually help with wind but they aren't as light as box rims. If your trying to decide if you want low or high profile wheels save yourself some money and get some nice box rims
