I'd like to try to build my own wheelset, never done it before. I know there is a wheel section but since I have a 29er I figure someone here might have a bit more knowledge on a suggested rim/spokes/etc as well as a suggested place to buy this stuff.

The bike is a Fisher cobia, I don't compete or anything like that..

thx,
B

How much jack you lookin' to spend?

The biggest decision you will have to make is the hubs. You can easily spend over $500 just on hubs. The hoops are much more affordable. Budget about $40 for spokes and nipples if you want something standard. I got in the last parts for my first wheel build today.

Ideally I would like to atleast stick with the quality of what I have

Shimano M475 disc hubs + Bontrager Ranger 29 Disc rims + 14G Stainless Steel spokes | Bontrager Jones XR 29x2.25 tires

But then again for my first attempt going as dirt cheap as possible isn't such a bad idea either..

I drool on that I9 stuff!
