Look no further :-)

As an added benefit you can use this disk for road and track, both axles are included with the purchase.

if i was in the market for a disc i would buy the new shimano/PRO brand disc with the large hex flange dura ace hub, there is absolutely no way you will detach the hub from the disc. very strong design.
if i get killed while out on my bike i dont want a 'memorial ride' by random punters i have never met.

Disc wheels are difficult to produce, only a few companies do it really well.

Check this video out:

The Pro-Lite disc on the back of the Netherlands track tandem is an off the shelf wheel, I certainly have never seen or heard of one failing.

Deon, can you convert that to something I can view on my fruit computer ?

BTW, big +1 to dealing with Pro-Lite. I'm getting that disc for Xmas myself.

Not meaning to threadjack, but would a wheel disc cover be legal to race on?
