Zipp Disc Adapter/non reduced/locking side help needed.
 
A friend spun the threads off his Zipp 950 this weekend. One of the other riders had an adapter that allowed the use of a "standard" cog on the other side (fixed the chainline and allowed the use of a lockring.

Before we have one made up does anyone have a source or one sitting?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I wonder if it's a Surly Fixxer: http://surlybikes.com/parts/fixxer

The Fixxer replaces the freehub body of Shimano brand hubs and is ISO threaded to accept a fixed gear cog and lockring, allowing you to convert a geared wheel to a true fixed gear. A popular conversion for track racers, springtime trainers, fixed-gear commuters and messengers, the Fixxer includes all parts necessary for installation, including axle, bearing, cones, spacers, and axle nuts. Most converted hubs can be spaced 120, 126, 130 or 135mm

Similar, but the axle is the wrong size. The older Zipp discs use a 3/8" axle...I got one of mine up and running recently using a BMX wheel axle and had some spacers made.
