Single Speed flip flop wheelset

Postby AlMac » Sat Jan 14, 2012 5:06 pm

I'm after a new wheelset for my single speed - need flip flop for the rear. Requires genuine single speed wheelset - as it's not a converted road bike.

After recommendations for a decent wheelset that anyone has been happy with. Ideally would like to spend no more than $200.

Must be all alloy, including spoke nipples. Current wheelset doesn't have alloy spoke nipples and they've rusted out.

Thanks
AlMac

Rusted nipples? I thought they were made of brass... :?

With that budget i'd just buy a fixie/track bike off fleabay/etc. and scavenge the wheels.

As stated above go for brass nipples if possible.
