    well, what are you planning to do? Are you doing drops or looking for light? How much are you willing to spend, how many holes, and what do you weigh?

    What do you call "cheap"? $10-20 ?

    Sun RhinoLite's can be had for $75 & up, all the time @ numerous sites. That's for BOTH wheels, BTW...

    what sites are the rhinolites found at? I really only need a rear wheel, if I could find one for 10-20$ that would be awesome.

    What kind of bike is this going on? Do you have indexed shifting? If so, how many speeds? You will need to match against the index-spacing in order for it to work properly. If you already have an existing freewheel or cassette that you want to use and works with your shifters then you will need to make sure the hub in that wheelset is compatible with the freewheel or cassette.

    Its going on a mongoose xr200, im pretty sure those rims would work. I dont need anything special, I just want to be able to ride it until I get my new bike.
