Trying to buy a disk brake wheelset

I've been on this computer all day trying to find a disk brake wheelset and all I can find is a low spoke count Mavic in a 700c. Doe's anybody know where I can get a 32 spoke disk brake wheelset? I have a Jamis and it has Ritchey 700c wheels on it and I wanted to upgrade them. Thanks for any replies.

Your LBS can handbuild you anything. Unless you meant you want pre-built ones.

Change the search to "29er" and all manner of options will show up. Also you may get lucky if you search for "cyclocross disc". The 29'ers come with a wider than road style rim but if you're looking at putting 28's or wider onto them then you're good to go.

Thanks a lot. I was thinking about that earlier, but I thought they may be to big. I'm running 32mm Panaracers on there now.
