A euro style with the 50mm or 80mm mounts Busch and Muller(for some reason the English side of the site is down) or Spanninga are both decent brands to look for. Are you going to run battery or generator?

I used a Spanninga Vector battery version for a while before I switched over to the generator version. Not sure where to get them in the USA at the moment, but Velo-Orange has the newest version of the Spanninga Plateo. I buy my stuff where ever I can find it. Clever Cycles in Portland, OR has been a good source for Busch and Muller stuff in the past. I would suggest calling them, they typically don't list everything they have on their website.
