Center lock hub: what mech disc brakes?

Are there any mech disc brakes that are center lock compatible?

I have a Shimano m765 center lock front hub. I'd love to convert my front brake to disc, preferably mechanical due to shifter compatibility, and preferably Avid because they seem to make the best mech disc brakes. Unfortunately most mechanical discs seem to be 6 bolt rather than center lock.

Can anyone suggest a model?

You should be fine with any brake, just get a center lock rotor.

What LoCel said. 160mm rotors do not care generally what calipers are squeezing them. One thing though. Even though there are converters to turn a center lock into a six bolt, their success rate is shaky IMO.
