Default Re: blown up hub

Craig's List, Ebay, local garage sales, thrift stores, the Sunday classified ads in the newspaper, the muncipal recycling center if you have one, any of the vendors listed on this site, the nearest bicycle shop (may even sell used ones), I have even found a few (whole bikes) in dumpsters at apartment complexes. I have picked up wheels out of the ditch on the side of the road too.
There are many ways to obtain a wheel, some of them free by dumb luck, others costing a dollar or two. If you want a really nice one though, and want it quick, buy it new.
