If I can find a complete bike for around $100 or so on CL (I have my eye on one), then all I really NEED is a new rear wheel, a freewheel and chainring, right? I can gradually swap out the other parts and do paint whenever.
Any tips on where to get wheels built with Surly hubs?
This one seems pretty nice @ $128:
