Wheel Covers

I have a Motobecane Track Bike and I want to add wheel covers to it. What are some good brands of wheel covers? How hard are they to install?

Seems like no one is answering this so I would probably just go to your local bike shop and ask these questions to get a more prompt answer.

To answer your questions:
1. No idea
2. Couldn't tell you

Fixcraft carries some. Are you looking to play polo, or just turn your bike into a sail? Solid wheels are a bad idea on the street, especially with track geometry.

I dont want to play polo. I just like the look of some of the wheel covers that I've seen. But I mainly use this bike to ride around my colleges campus.

Probably a bad idea. A windy day could give you grief.

A track bike is already impractical. A disc on your rear wheel just adds drama to poor handling when it's windy.

I know it's a bad idea, and you know it's a bad idea, but we need to play nice. Back in the day, I actually used every other item on this page.
