    650b/27.5 rim brake wheelset options?

    I am looking for wheelset options described in the title. I want to build up a Surly Pack Rat, which is designed for 650b and it has canti brakes. I would need a wider rim for a 47c tire. This frame has a 132.5mm rear spacing so it fits either a 130 or 135 hub. Not looking to spend a ton of money, I don't need expensive hubs or anything. I actually prefer Shimano, even regular Deore. Any ideas besides a custom build?

    I recommend this rim and whatever hubs you want.
