Need a wheel

Hello, you see, I buckled my old wheel and now i need a new one. I'm also on a very limited budget at the mo. So wats a really cheap heavy duty rim,(im in NZ if thats any consolation, shop wise and whatnot).
I just need a rim no spokes or hub. And ive checked Trademe. Also, only the rim is damaged, so will i need to replace the spokes? And is $35 to have it relaced fair? And is $1.50 a spoke fair? Oh and its 26 inch. Oh and it needs to be a rim brake too.

Sorry for the "choppyness" and poor structure of this post.

$35 can get you a decent wheel. i dont know your style, but im thinking its something abusive, Freeride? DH? also, how many holes? 32? 36?

anyway, heres a decent rim on jenson usa. shipping will cost $40, plus some other stuff.

and if you need new spokes, http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...es+50+Bag.aspx thats 50 spokes (why 50? 36 and 72 sure, but 50?) check with your LBS for spoke length to get the right ones.

anymore questions, either ask here or PM me.

if you do, http://www.sheldonbrown.com/wheelbuild.html, but before you ride, let the shop check it over, just to be safe
