Build a wheel Vs. buy a wheel

Hey all, i was wondering what everyone’s opinions are on building your own wheels vs. buying them? I’m gonna hopefully start my first fixie project soon, so i don’t want something super expensive, was thinking of getting a hold of some interesting (older) rims and lacing them to a fixed hub. (i know how to build a wheel too). Any thoughts? Would i be wasting my time? Also what is a good rear track hub brand?

Welcome to the forum,

There is heaps of stuff on here about this already, so use the search function and you will find plenty of stuff to answer your question.

Not doubting you here, but make sure you DO know how to build wheels if you go down that path. Its tricker than it sounds/looks.

Good luck.
