    yup, E-bay.
    lots of hoops on the cheap.
    check the online stores for rims that are
    close outs etc. I've seen old campy rims
    and old mavic rims really cheap.

    I was just looking at them over at Alfred E. Bike.com... I was wondering if they were any good... I'd really like some black rims... I don;t wanna spend more than $30-40 on hoops... this is for my beater fixie project... so I don't need it costing more than my Regualr Roadie

    thanks

    I have the alex adventurer rims on my single speed cross check. They
    seem like good beefy rims. Quite wide, so you wouldn't want to run skinny
    tires on them (I've tried and they pinch flat too easy). I got the rims from
    AE Bike, too. Service was good.
