As a regular fixie commuter in need of some wheels, I was given the chance to test some of the flouro yellow Halo Aerorage track wheels. Out of the box the wheels looked good with the 25mm aero section flouro rims, with machined braking surface, being laced with black spokes and nipples to a black 32 hole track hub with silky smooth bearings. The wheels were perfectly true, spoke tension good with nice chromed track nuts to keep everything in place. Once up and running the wheels felt smooth on the road being stiff enough but not overly harsh and everything stayed true even after several unsighted pothole hits.

The wheels aren’t the lightest – weighing in at 1kg each – but that didnt stop the wheels being easy enough to spin up. The one thing I haven’t mentioned yet is the colour, they are the most fluorescent yellow colour I have ever seen! It isn’t until the wheels are out in natural light that they really show their true colour. However, this colour is perfect for a commuter bike, drivers and pedestrians really do a double take when they see you coming. If the flouro colour is not for you the wheels come in other more civilized colours such as black or purple anodised and powder coat white.

Overall: These are a great set of fixie wheels which should last for many miles and if required the cartridge bearings are easily replaced to keep them running on and on.

    Totally agree – got a rear wheel in July and it has been nothing short of superb. It has coped with the daily commute – including right through thr ‘White Hell’ without fault. Not silly money either. My eyes couldn’t stand the fluro so went for purple instead. Great wheels and will buy from Halo again.

    LOL!

    Great wheels, got a factory built fixed/free rear on on my roadrat and built a rim up onto a planet x hub on the front. Use on and off road with cross tyres. Still smooth and true after plenty of abuse, and i’m no lightweight. Went for the rather boring black though.

    I’ve got a rear yellow one on my commuter, almost don’t need a rear light!!

    Smart wheels! What make is that front brake hanger and did you have to drill the fork? My Pompino doesn’t have a bolt hole on the front of the crown.

    don_don – i think it’s a Tektro hanger and yes i did have to drill the forks.

    how do you know its the yellow rims people have noticed rather than the green tyres or crazy bar tape? 😉

    hot pink for me, a definite head turner…

    Tim, you stood in front of me waiting for the train back from Manchester tonight, couldn’t stop starring at the wheels, tyres and bar tape.

    Gimme a nudge next time Sven.

    Rims look very similar to the stock ones I got with my pompino (Sep 08 model). Tempted to get a yellow one as replacement when mine wear, very eye catching perfect for commuting. Don_Don you can get hangers that go on the steerer – assuming you have room for spacers under you stem.

    Those rims combined with the (possible) fluro-yellow On One Pompetamine = DayGlo-tastic!

    Gimme a nudge next time Sven.

    Sven you will end up pregnant. Fact.

    TimK / Donk – cheers guys. I’m trying to get the bars a bit lower, but its putting the front brake cable through too much of a bend in the steerer mounted hangar. I’ll check out that Tektro one and get me drill out!

    With herpes. Fact.

    yeo good wheels – got these on my pearson touche, though went with the black version

    Is there a bike in the photo? I only see a wall…….
