    26" rim brake single speed hub wheel on a budget?

    Looking for the right wheel has been challenging. I want to use a white ind dingle hub and haven't found much. Let me know what you've seen out there. Thanks

    26" rim brake single speed hub wheel on a budget?

    Surly is the best value out there. They make a non-disc version. For a little more coin, I highly recommend the Paul's WORD SS hub. I have the PAUL hub setup with Velocity Cliffhangers 26" and Sapim spokes. I'm running the WI DOS ENO 16/18. Awesome wheel.

    Not sure what your budget is, but any old 26" wheel combined with a couple of cassette cogs and a spacer kit makes a cheap and versatile dingle setup.

    I have these. You cant get any cheaper. I haven't beat on them too much but they seem to get good reviews considering they are under $100.

    I run a Paul WORD with a Sun RhyoLite XL rim. DT Swiss Champ spokes. Not exactly cheap, but not really expensive. Been running them for a few years, and I couldn't be happier.

    I'm not sure a 24h wheel will hold my big ass off the ground. 36h is more my speed.
