Online place to buy a 27" wheel?

This is for an old road bike. I know Nashbar and performancebikes has newer 700cc wheels but couldn't find any that carried 27" ones. The LBS quoted me about $30 for an alloy one and $20 for a steel one, but since they had to order it it'd take awhile and I wanted to look around myself. Thanks.

Guess it'd be cheaper to let the LBS order it. Thanks.

Yeah, but what are you getting for a $30 wheel?

I'm not sure but this is just for my commuter. I'd rather put more money into a new road bike in the future I guess.
