Looking for rear wheel (or matching pair front/rear) to complete singlespeed/fixed build. 700c or 27", plain alloy rims. Would prefer flip-flop (2-sided) hub and 130mm OLD but willing to consider anything suitable. Needs to be reasonable price as on a budget.

Most true track wheels will be 120mm, so will need a couple of spacers to make into 130mm.

Whats your budget? I recently bought a rear track wheel with sealed bearings. Very impressed with it. Something similar on merlin cycles fot £49.50

Yes, I have found a few wheels within budget that are 120mm - I may end up going down that route. There are some 130mm hubs around, but those I have seen have deep-dish rims and/or black or heavily logo'd finishes, and I would rather keep the clean alloy look.

Will have a look at the Merlin item - that's within budget. Thank you.

[Edit: ah yes, I had seen that one. It breaks the 'plain alloy' rule, unfortunately.]
