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)

Buidling a single speed

I'm tearing apart an old bike I found and I want to build it up as a single-speed. This is the first time I've ever tried it and its more for the learning experience then it is to have an awesome bike at the end (I have an awesome bike already).

So, the wheels on this bike are shot and I need new ones, I don't want to attempt to build my own (not yet anyways). So where do I find a rear wheel with a single speed hub? And how can you judge the quality of a wheel?
