    Singlespeed cyclocross disc wheelset?

    I'm trying to build up an on-one Pompetamine with a $1k budget. I think I have everything pretty much sorted but the wheels. For those unfamiliar with the bike, it's an SS CX bike with disc brakes.

    Here's what I need out of the wheelset...

    -Disc compatible (6bolt or CL is fine)
    -135mm rear spacing
    -Bolt on rear hub for horizontal dropouts
    -BMX freewheel or built in ratchet is fine
    -Would prefer non-machined sidewalls on the rims.
    -$300 max budget

    I know the last one is the kicker but I think I did well to set aside $300 for the wheels with a $1k budget!

    Anyone know where I could find such wheels???

    I built a set of A23s laced 3x to a DT 350 F and WTB Laser Disc Light R hub. When i ran it SS i just used cassette spacers and single cogs. Worked excellent. For about $300. Only thing i'll suggest is that you chose hubs that are convertible so that something like RWS thru axles are an option.

    PS i ride a pompino. Its a lot of fun. Have you checked out the pompino/ pompetamine forum out @ london fixed gear/single speed? Its worth a look for examples and tips on builds from UK riders.

    I have a Pompino as well. It's a great bike. I'm helping a friend build up this Pompetamine. I'll have to check out that forum.
