Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

$30.
Wheelbuilders I've patronized usually incorporate a rim into the equation, too.

Did you want it laced up so you can finish it yourself or completely built ?

You are looking at 30-40 labour charge for each built wheel.

You can do the lacing yourself and might want to use the services of a good wheel builder to handle the final truing and tensioning.
