I bought a previous track frame from a local masters sprinter because he had bought himself a Zen frame and disc wheel in 2009, which I suppose is another point of difference to UKSI. The current disc wheels NZ use are made by a company that specialised in sailing equipment. All seem to hold up ok.

And you too can own a pair, for 25k, whenever they do another batch
