Well, someone has to start this thread...
I'll say $70 labor for two wheels. Spokes and nipples ($20 each wheel) $40.
I've never had a shop build a set, so the labor cost is based on pure guess.
If you are looking for a complete wheelset, it is often much cheaper to buy a premanufactured wheelset, which are machine built. You'll get new hubs, rims, spokes, nipples. Just my $0.02
