    Parts needed for a complete wheel build

    Hello guys!

    I am thinking of building a wheelset and I need to know all the parts I will need.
    This is what I have right now(20 front 24 rear build):

    2 rims
    2 hubs
    88 nipples
    88 spokes
    2 qr levers
    2 pieces of rim tape

    Is this all I will need? Am I wrong about something?

    Also about how much does a wheel build cost from a shop? I know it differs from shop to shop, but how much can I expect? Thanks!!

    Here, an LBS (very nice guy owns it) will charge $50 to build a wheel (not including parts).

    I would assume you mean 2 rims total and not 2 sets of rims right?

    If so, I think your total spoke and nipple count should be 44. Otherwise, your parts are correct. Naturally, spoke tool.

    Thread prep??
    Tires??
    Innertubes??
    Tools (spoke wrench etc)

    I would consider them part of a wheel.
