Wheel sizeBirddog

I recently purchased an old Takara which I plan on making a fixie. It currently has 27 inch wheels, but 700 would work right? I'm figuring it would be better to have 700 since my other bikes are all that size and I wouldn't have to fool around looking for spare stuff when nec.. Any source on prebuilt fixed wheels with a flip flop hub?
Thanks,
Birddog

700 wheels will work fine, with the added bonus of giving you added clearance for a wider range of tires. Check out the spicer site- www.trackbikesource.com they have a bunch of inexpensive wheels and are a good lot to deal with.
