- Singlespeed Wheelset (Road)
unless your new rims are the exact same size you’ll need new spokes too,
The shimano wheels are a no go.
I’ve used Mavic Open Pro rims and they have been excellent.
But if you go for a wheelset the halo aerorage ones are pretty good, you may get a bit of cash selling your current wheels to some hipsters.Posted 4 years agoSinglespeed_ShepMember
Spa cycles would be worth giving a call for rims and advice, they are really good wheel builders and stock alsorts of rims for good prices.
It may not be from a brand you’ve heard of but the quality will be good.
I’ve had some wheels built from them with rigida and exal.be rims that have been excellent.Posted 4 years ago
I have a 2010 Kona Paddywagon that I’ve started using more and more. Aesthetically, I’ve never liked the wheels – too orange. So, I’m looking at changing them. I thought of converting a spare pare of Shimano r500s I have, but the spacing will be out. The Kona currently has a flip-flop hub but I haven’t ridden it fixed for the past 2 years so I’m happy to go with just s/speed.
S/speed wheelsets all seem fairly expensive for what they are so I was toying with my first ever self-build. In all honesty, I could keep the hubs and spokes and build them into new, un-orange, rims.
I thought I’d check here first though to see if any could recommend a wheelset or any other suggestions of the best way forward.
I’m planning on using the Kona as my only bike during winter this year so something for wet, average condition roads, light-ish rider, 120mm spacing, normal use.
Any suggestions? Thanks
EDIT – as with everything I want to do it as cheap as possible, around the £100 mark give or take a bit.Posted 4 years ago
