26" fixed gear wheel for sale

I’m selling the fixed-gear wheel that came with the frame that is now the Hot Karl. It’s a nice wheel. A 26" fixed-gear wheel is kind of a niche market, to say the least. If it were a 700 wheel, I’d save it as backup for my fixed gear. But I’ve really got no need for it. Hmm, what would happen if you ride a bike with two different-sized wheels? Probably nothing. But it still doesn’t seem kosher.

I could also save it for Karl, and just swap the wheels if he ever gets cocky with his new bike. That would learn ’im.

I put it on e-bay. Don’t tell anybody, but if it doesn’t sell, I’ll virtually give it away on Craig’s List. Still, this wheel can be yours for as little as $25 if you win the auction with a low bid and pick the wheel up. What a bargain! New Mavic Rim. Suzue Hub. Round, true, ready to go.

If that link doesn’t work. The e-bay item number is 7237143885.

UPDATE: Wheel sold. Buy it now for $50 + shipping. It's new home is in Chicago.
