Cheap non deep dish SS/fixed wheelset

Postby TomBikes » Wed Jan 16, 2013 4:38 pm

I'm trying to piece a new build together so I can get a rough idea of how much I need to save up. I've found almost every thing and i mainly just need a wheelset so I can figure out brakes. I plan to build a bike for the sake of building a bike, so I thought that a SS/fixed geared bike would the easiest and most cost effective means of doing it. I'm just having a far bit of trouble on locating a flip-flop hub wheelset which isn't a deep rim setup. I don't mind the look but the weight is pretty big. So, do you guys have any recommendations for a sub (or there about) $150 flip flop wheelset (preferably not deep rim).

i grabbed a pair of the griffon wheels ($25 for a set!), havent ridden them yet but they look pretty good considering the price! not deep dish either, but no flip flop hub, only come with 3/32 18T freewheel
