Single Speed Rear Wheels
POSTED: 1/28/10 9:11 AM

Anyone know of any local shops that sell rear wheels for single speed bikes? I'd like something with a flip flop hub. I have a SS bike, but have a tacoed rear wheel that isn't doing me any good.

thanks
Jen

I doubt we've got anything in stock (and as I only work about 1 day per month I'm pretty weak on inventory) but we could always order or build you one. I'm sure that any shop could do the same. I'd assume a week at most to get that done.

When I had my rear wheel boosted (what bike thief carries around a 15mm wrench?), Revolution in Georgetown had one that they sold me for a pretty reasonable price - Mavic rim, Surly flip-flop hub. Don't remember the price -- it was a few years ago. if you're looking for a mtn bike wheel, I'd assume they could build on a 26" or 29" rim too.

Thanks for the tips. I'm hitting REI this weekend, so I'll ask. I'll call Revolution as well.

And it's for a road bike (Motobecane), not a mtn bike.
