Front Disc's

Anyone know where I can find one? It can't be more than $500, should be tubular, and can be an old style threaded rear that can get an axle replacement. Does anyone know of any just laying around? There was one on Ebay a few weeks ago that went for under $300, but I couldn't get it.

Man, an old Hed front disc went for like $190 a few weeks back on eBay.

Can't you buy a Hed rear and resize the axle? I've never done it with mine, but it would certainly be possible, looking at how the wheel was made.

Wherever Nationals are in 2008. Hopefully it's an indoor track and I can be able to use it, but if not, then it's not a huge loss, and it can look really, really cool.
The HED front disc that was on Ebay is here; I totally should have jumped on that.

That's the one I was talking about. I couldn't believe how cheap that went for.

Junior Nationals. They were at 7-11 this year. Hopefully indoor this year.
Looking around, the Zipp disc comes in a front version for $900, so I might be able to get one on an EP for cheaper than that. Then I could have matching Zipp's.
