    Welcome aboard! I hope your search is fruitful. You might try posting in the Mechanics thread. They would tend to stockpile things like wheel.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Try finding bicycle cooperatives. They frequently take in donated bicycles to part out to other builds. There's one I pass which has a small number of rusting wheels out back of its building.
