Easy guys, don't be too harsh on the new guy. Remember back when you didn't know all the names.
Now, Sunshinemtb, a couple of questions. I'm assuming you don't need disc hubs. What is Not Much to you? Under a hundred? Not much to me is under $500, so it's all relative.
I've seen some killer deals on wheelsets at www.supergo.com
Now, remember that you will also need a cassette. The multiple gear cluster thingy on your back wheel. Usually if you buy it at the same time, they'll install it for you.
That brings up a very important question. Are these wheels to replace some existing ones? If so, you'll have to buy the right ones. Count the number of cogs on your existing bike. Most likely there will be 7, 8 or 9 cogs on the cassette. If your existing wheel is a 7, you'll need a 7 speed cassette and a spacer. If 8 or 9, you won't need the spacer.
