    Best 29er wheelset for under $120?

    I understand $120.00 doesn't buy you much when it comes to wheels, but I'm looking for the best set I can get in that price range. Have you guys seen any deals?

    Thanks!

    I would look for some take-offs on ebay or craigslist. For that money I'd go lightly used instead of heavy and new.

    This. I was able to score some WTB SpeedDisc AM rims laced to Shimano SLX hubs for $110 shipped when I built my first 29er. If you've got time, throw out some lowball bids on ebay every now and again. Bid what you're willing to spend and dont get too attached to individual listings since you're looking to spend a set amount of money.

    Great advice above. Used may be better. Clicked to see what you came up with, and those guys are right.

    on craiglist I scored some takeoff alex XD comp with Deroe hubs, Avid Disk rotors AND rocket ron front and racing ralph rear tires.

    All for under 150 bux. This was for having a second wheelset. One for knobbies and hybrid tires for street.

    I had to be patient for a couple months though scouring craiglist like crazy.

    This. Bontrager Superfly take-offs show up all the time on ebay, CL and local message boards. You can reasonably expect to find a set at your budget.
