    Wheels: Build or Buy? / Budget Wheelset

    I'm positive this has been discussed, didn't see it.

    Building up a low-budget fixed gear, and I'm in the market for a cheap wheelset that is decent quality. Right now I'm looking at the Eighthinch Amelia wheelset, for $110 shipped with everything it seems like a score. I don't want to spend much more than that since I'm doing such a budget build. Going to be a road bike, would like a flipflop rear hub.

    Or, would it be cheaper / the same price for a better quality set if I built my own?

    Or, is there a better deal out there that I'm missing?

    Thanks

    Pre-built, spokes are starting to get ridiculously expensive.
