I need old wheels for my beater! help!mattcrout
Apr 8, 2003 2:08 PM
I have the oportunity to get a older 531 steel bike that i would like to turn into a single speed, or just a beater. Problem is, bike doesn't have any wheels. It's got 126 spacing in the rear. I want to do this on the cheap!! i have very little money. Where can I get some cheap used wheels. is it possible to find any? freewheel, freehub, i don't care! any ideas? Thanks!

I have a pair of campy strata or gramma rims ( box section type) that are laced to shimano 105 7 speed hubs ( I belive the rear spacing should be right )If your interested I'll dig them up and find out exactly what rim they are.Im in Seattle. nballer@netzero.net
