I have an older (early 90's I think) Nishiki Modulus Road bike that I am considering converting to 650b for commuting purposes. I realize that it may be cheaper to just buy a different bike with better clearance, but would still like to price out the cost of converting this one.
I would like to keep the cost as low as possible, but am finding it very hard to find any 650b wheelsets for under $200. Does anyone have any recommendations? I am considering getting my local bike shop to build up the wheels on the existing rims, would this likely be a cheaper option (they charge roughly $40 per wheel).
