Wheels!!

Looking for a new set of wheels for my single speed / fixie but all I can seem to find are those 'No Logo' ones on eBay. They look nice enough but are pretty expensive for my bike which is a hodge podge of old parts. Anyone know where you can get decent black or while wheels cheap?

Thanks in advance!

Prices are good but I'm not sure they do black or white.

Be aware that 19mm rims are best suited to tyres of 32mm & up, (28mm will work but will be uncomfortable).

I managed to get front and rear wheels, quando hubs, Weinman rims for £5 each from Wilko.
Not proper fixie wheels, but took a 16t freewheel no probs.
Ideal for a first foray, they might still have some.

Front (£25) - http://www.parkersofbolton.co.uk/p-2835-700c-x-19mm-weinmann-front-race-wheel-with-qr-hub.aspx

Rear (£29 plus a couple quid for some spacers if you've not got any) - http://www.parkersofbolton.co.uk/p-3324-700c-x-19mm-black-weinmann-rear-race-wheel-with-qr-hub.aspx

I don't think you'll get much cheaper than that. A mate of mine bought that rear as a replacement on a budget and a deadline. It's done a good few hundred miles with no issues so far.
I will probably use these on my next project though.

Ah, wished I'd seen this earlier, I will be down there tonight to see if they have any in!!!
