    Trying to build up my old Bianchi SS just for cruising around but I don't need bling parts for it so where can I find cheap 6 bolt disc SS wheelsets? Thanks

    Check out your local Trek dealer. I've seen some good deals on take offs from Fisher Rigs. I guess I should have asked if it was for a 26" wheel but I figured people didn't ride those any more.

    I picked up a Forte Terramax wheelset from Performance Bike for about $120 or so...6 bolt & rim brake compatible. I rode on them for the last year or so without any problems at all...pretty cheap wheels but get the job done nicely!

    I picked up a nice set of rims for CHEAP at bicyclewheelwharehouse.com. for my SS roadie. Very happy with the rims and the service. You could probably get a decent (low-end) pair of hand built rims for around $100ish.
    I no longer deserve a signature.

    You can find some really nice older stuff if you look around. I like to use old 7 speed wheel sets for my budget builds. You can get them for next to nothing. They are usually bullet proof. They have less offset than newer hubs. They give you lots of room to get the chain line right with the crankset.

    I may even have a set in my garage that I would let you have for the price of shipping.
