    New question here. Freewheel to Fixed Conv Bianchi Wuss

    So I have a Bianchi Wuss SS that has been begging for a fixed wheel for years...

    What would I be looking at $ wise to build a wheel? Or can someone point to a web dealer that sells 26" fixed rear mountain bike wheels?

    Google hasn't turned up much...


    Appreciate your help!

    Do you need disc or rim brake?
    Do you have a rear wheel already? Could you use the rim off of that wheel and lace it to a new hub?
    Can you lace it yourself?
    Have you talked to your local bike shop?

    You could make this happen for pretty cheap really!

    Are you running disk brakes? If so why not just use a bolt on rear cog. $20 and the job is done.

    Who needs a rear brake anyway for fixed gear

    6 Bolt Cogs

    Even if your not running disks you can just chase down a disk wheel that is in your budget, that'll be the cheapest and simplest solution rather than hunting down a 135mm fixed cog and 26inch rim combo

    aah, I cant believe I didnt see this. Tomicog would be perfect. Wish I wouldnt have blown a winter dreaming

    Rear disc brake wont be neccesary, this bike will look badass with one lever!

    Thanks for the referral! Such a simple solution...
