    I bought a cheapie Mojo Bike for $100, mostly for the wheels. Was surprised to find they were sealed bearing, with proper track nuts and hollow axles. Pretty sure they're 32H so even with my 90kg loaded, not a problem. There's probably a thousand of them lying dormant which people would take 100-150 for. Pilfer the wheels, offload the frame cheap, win. Buy the one Pinzo suggested, swap parts, sell the rest, you're way ahead.
    yeah i dont like them, they are heavy, and alot of the spokes are broken and i cbfd repairing them; would like a better quality set.

    As I said, doesn't look like a 58 to me. Take a tape measure with you. 58 may be from centre to top.
