Cheapest REAR WHEEL anywhere?

Hi,

I'm looking for the cheapest rear wheel, the minimum needed to convert my road bike to fixie.

I found a cheap wheelset for $100, but im looking to spend around $50 just for one single rear wheel with hub, cog,and lockring.


Any website other than ebay?

thanks.

I got the wheelset earlier this week, ok stuff considering the price. I rode the cog once, but I already had a soma cog and shimano lockring that I put on because as stated, who knows the quality of it and I wanted to run 3/32 anyways. The cog it came with was 1/8 but the freewheel was 3/32, go figure that one out...
The only issue I had was that they weren't true but I emailed them and they had no problem refunding me 40 bucks to get them trued.

I think bikepartsusa might have one of those rear wheel combos for around $50. A few years back, I bought one of them for about $40 from a now defunct internet dealer. I didn't know it at the time, but it came with a decent lockring and a crappy no name cog that fit so sloppy that I've never used it. The wheel itself is a cheapo Weinmann/Suzue that's held up quite well over the years with a DuraAce cog.

the Crosslake set is the lowest price online at the moment. you'll have to go to Craigslist or a local bike shop that deals in used parts to find anything cheaper.

You know, I can use a cheap front wheel (700, silver, 32-spoke). Maybe we can split a wheelset? If it isn't too much trouble...
