Bontrager Select Disc

I have a 2008 Lemond Poprad Disc. I'd like to get a second set of wheels, either the standard Bontrager Discs it came with or something comparable. Any suggestions of the best place to look? I have been to several bike shops without much help. The problem seems to be the rarity of road bikes with disc brakes. I was also told Bontrager no longer makes this wheel.

Seems to be options out there instead of Bontrager.

Saw a few others out there also.

I actually just installed a disc brake on the front of my San Jose

Surly Hub + DT TK540 disc rim - not the lightest wheel, but very solid.

I also considered the Deore disc hub + a lighter DT RR rim!

I'm still running the orginal Bontrager Selects that came on my 2002 model Trek 6700 mtb and they've held up well. If they're straight I see no reason not to use them. A comparable wheelset would be Mavic crossrides which I also run on my mtb.
