That sounds ideal^
I built up a set of dt swiss r460 rims to a standard novatec flip flop hub. The rims are around £30 here, with a hub from Ali express from for maybe £20. There must be somewhere in aus that can do you some cheap spokes too.
Wheelbuilding is fun to learn and fixed wheels are nice an easy as there is less dishing to worry about (they are symmetrical, unlike a road rear or disc wheels where the flanges aren't equally spaced). Get over to the wheel building thread/YouTube for all the info you could ever need).
I might price this up just out of curiosity. Thanks for the tip!
