WTB cheap wheelset +cross partsbiker83

Building a low end cyclocross bike and was wondering if there was anywhere I could find cheap parts besides ebay. Main thing I need to find cheap is a wheelset, but it does not seem like there are any cheap wheelsets on ebay. (also need crankset and cassette, but ebay seems fine for those)
What do you consider "cheap"?AJS

I mean, we all want everything as cheap as we can get it I suppose, but c'mon - generally no one is giving stuff away are they? Not if it's worth putting on a bike, they're not.

What's the least you'll pay for a wheelset? $100.? $200.? Do you expect $100. wheels to last longer than riding them out of your driveway? How about group parts, etc?

Think about it!
Get real. I ride $100 wheelsets all the time...TFerguson

You can easily find a used Ultegra/Open Pro for $100 that will get you well past the end of your driveway for many years to come.

...I have a crankset, rings, bb, cassette, and chain. Do you need 8 or 9 speed? What size rings? What size crank? BB? This is good solid stuff, some of it is just slightly used.

Let me know what you need and I'll let you know specifically what I have.
